Red Eagle. Red Eagle was created by Harold F. Cruickshank (Canuck Cavalry, Bill Dawe, Keko, Sky Wolf, White Phantom) and appeared in twenty-four stories in Battle Birds and Dare-Devil Aces from 1932 to 1936, beginning with “The Red Eagle” (Battle Birds, Dec. 1932).

The Red Eagle is a Costumed Avenger. Captain Ted Blair is “The Red Eagle,” a masked air ace in World War One. He is a redheaded, steel-gray-eyed, handsome, scarred intelligence agent of G-2. He leads the “Eagle Brood” of the 44th Squadron: Lt. Sam Martin, Monty Rider, Spud Fallon, and Babe Deakin, who are “big-chested sky-scrapers who feared nothing except the tongue-lashing form their leader.” Blair flies a Spad decorated with rampant red eagles, has as a catchphrase “You can only die once,” and is opposed by Baron von Bleutz.
