The Archer was a corrupt politician turned assassin who killed several powerful politicians on the same comittee as himself. As The Archer, he wore a fake beard and left behind a red feather on his victims. He was eventually stopped by The Great Defender.

The Archer was, of course, deadly accurate with a hunting bow. He was also a good climber, and a skilled hand-to-hand combatant, able to throw an opponent with a judo-like technique.
