Red Blazer

In this comic, posted on Four Color Shadows, our hero "Red Blazer" seeks out a counterfeiting gang.  Red can apparently fly, has super strength, and can control the forces of fire and heat; but fire extinguishers are his weakness (seriously!).  The villain in this story, Dr. Skull, the "deformed" leader of the gang, really takes the cake.
