Woman in Red. Peggy Allen is a police undercover agent who is frustrated with the strictures of the Law and decides to fight crime outside of it, as the costumed Woman in Red. She has no superpowers but carries a gun, which she is more than willing to use. The villains she stops include the Spirit Killer (a spirit medium murderer) and African cultists of the death god Voa. The Woman in Red appears in stories with titles like "The Black Terror," "The Case of the Manton Crypt," and "The Koruba Diamond Case."
