The Crimson Crimebuster (real name unknown) was a member of the Crime Patrol. The other members were Lunar Avenger, Doc Hazzard, and Dark Dwarf. The Crimson Crimebuster wore a red suit and a white featureless face mask, making him somewhat resemble Rorschach from the graphic novel Watchmen. He went to the Firehouse with the Lunar Avenger in order to enlist their aid in defeating their old enemy Fu Fang, who had teamed up with Caesar Caldoni's gang. After the Ghostbusters trapped Caldoni's gang and Fu Fang, he told the Ghostbusters that they were the new heroes of New York. He later helped the Ghostbusters defeat Nurtog.
