Crimson Comet, is an Australian Golden Age comic book superhero created by John Dixon who debuted in Crimson Comet #1 in 1949. He is a private detective who had a pair of eagle wings on his back. His real name is Ralph Rivers.


Ralph Rivers is a handsome man with medium build. As Ralph, he conceals his wings on his private investigator uniform, appearing with a hunchback. As Crimson Comet, he wears a red overall supersuit with his wings spread wide.


After his mother was murdered by a burglar who broke into the family mansion, young Ralph River's surgeon father threw himself into his research. He developed a pair of wings, which he subsequently grafted on to Ralph's back; the boy hid these beneath his clothes, giving him the appearance of a hunchback.

In spite of this somewhat weird behaviour and his new attributes, Ralph did well at school, and grew up fit, smart and strong. Once he became an adult, Ralph became a private eye, while secretly fighting crime as the Crimson Comet.
