In 1939, Street and Smith, publishers of ''Radio/TheShadow'' and ''DocSavage'', decided to try yet another variant on the "hero pulp" magazine. To lure in the readers, it was advertised as being written by "Kenneth Robeson". The house name was in this case being used by Paul Ernst, though he was coached on proper pulp formula by both Lester Dent and Walter Gibson. The original ''The Avenger'' magazine ran from September 1939 to September 1942, with a few short stories by a different author (but under the same house name) running until 1944.

Notably, after WorldWarTwo, the radio producer discovered that it still had distribution rights to a radio program of "The Avenger", and created an InNameOnly remake. In this program, the Avenger was biochemist and police scientist Jim Brandon, who'd invented a [[PsychicPowers Telepathic Indicator]] that allowed him to pick up strong thoughts from a great distance, and the "Diffusion Capsule" which reacted with a serum [[ProfessorGuineaPig to which he'd acclimated himself]] and "cloaked him in the black light of {{invisibility}}". Along with his "lovely assistant" [[TheWatson Fern Collier]] and a frequently-baffled police inspector, Brandon investigated crimes in a blatant FollowTheLeader of ''TheShadow'' radio show.
