Several businessmen have been killed, the murderer having apparently clawed them to death so that the initial suspect is an author who owns a bird of prey and had a grudge against a victim who ran a publishing house. However, the discovery of a comic called 'The Winged Avenger' featuring a super-hero is found by the latest victim. And could the invention of Professor Poole, boots that allow the wearer to climb walls and scale ceilings, be involved? Written by don @ minifie-1

Nigel Green and Jack MacGowran
19 March 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Winged Avenger" is the best yet this color season, one of the most elaborate episodes of them all, depicting scenes as they happen in comic book form, with a finale echoing America's popular BATMAN series. Ruthless businessmen are being murdered in locked rooms atop high rise buildings, apparently by a large bird of prey. Steed and Emma are a particular delight as usual, the two stars at the peak of their form, playing with warmth and affection, and an ad lib or two ("EEE URP!" indeed!). Nigel Green, later seen in "Fog," heads a fine cast, with Jack MacGowran as a highly eccentric scientist who has devised a pair of gravity defying boots that allow the wearer to walk up walls and stand on the ceiling (for those who like to hang around). The main suspects are played by Neil Hallett ("Dead of Winter" and "Get-A-Way!") and Colin Jeavons ("A Touch of Brimstone"), with smaller roles essayed by John Garrie ("Fog"), Donald Pickering ("Homicide and Old Lace"), A. J. Brown ("Small Game for Big Hunters"), Hilary Wontner ("Silent Dust"), and John Crocker ("Propellant 23" and "The Medicine Men").
