Crimson Catalyst is a Real Life Superhero, based in Chicago Illinois. She has retired.
Crimson Catalyst spearheaded the formation of The Greater Chicagoland SuperHero Initiative in late 2011, which comprised the likes of Seraph, Moon Knight, Phantom Shadow, Prado, and Patch Work. Together, they patrolled the streets of Chicago, sometimes working alongside other RLSH in handing out food and supplies to the homeless population on the streets of the Windy City.
She has made several appearances on panels at various conventions, including Wizard World Chicago in 2013, to spread awareness on issues of homelessness and domestic violence.
She retired in 2015 to focus on her academic pursuits, and is currently a student at the University of California, Berkeley. She makes YouTube videos addressing sociopolitical issues from an academic perspective.
