Golden Age Origin Edit

Alan Armstrong was an expert pilot, a wealthy playboy, and the confidant of his fiancé Eve's father, Admiral Corby. The Admiral suspected that spies had infiltrated America and needed help, so Armstrong put on a costume and became the Spy Smasher. When WWII ended, he changed his name to Crime Smasher and shifted his focus towards fighting crime. He has no powers; instead, he uses both his smarts and his Gyrosub, which combines "the functions of an airplane, auto gyro, speedboat, and submarine." Eve sometimes helps him since she knows his secret identity.

His enemies included America-Smasher, the Black Dragon Society, Dark Angel, Death, Dr. Blizzard, Golden Wasp, Grosso, Horrido, Jap Devil Dragon, Man in the Iron Mask, the Mask, the Red Death (Fawcett), Angelo Spigetti, and the Tigress (Fawcett).
