RED is the world’s greatest detective, and the only human capable of walking shoulder to shoulder as equals among the Gods, extraterrestrials, and androids that make up The Alliance, the world’s first and foremost super team. Her civilian identity is one Alessandra Revere, daughter to a district attorney father and brain surgeon mother, one of the elite power couples on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. That is, until they were murdered in their home while 7-year-old Alessandra hid under her bed.
Alessandra solved her first case at the age of nine, single handedly bringing to justice her parent’s killers, triggermen for an international organized crime cartel, when the cops and the Feds looked the other way. By 13, she brought down the entire cartel, gaining her the attention of The Alliance, and joining them as their youngest member.
Possessing a brilliant analytical mind and natural athletic prowess, Red has mastered a number of martial arts, including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kung Fu, and Judo. She also has advanced weapons training.
After the death of her ward Mae Thomas (also her sidekick, Crimson Kid) she renounced her civilian alter-ego entirely. Alessandra Revere is no more…there is only Red.
RED is the character at the center of a graphic novel I’m itching to start working on. High concept, it’s Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” meets The Justice League. Essentially, it’s a superhero murder mystery, darker and more mature than some of the other stuff I’ve done. I’ll be looking for artist to co-create this project sometime next year.
