5 Red Superheroes from DC Comics
The Flash (debut 1940)
Real superheroes are red and the most popular red costumed hero is undoubtedly The Flash who is still running at break neck super speed despite the fact that he is over 70 years of age. He has been played by at least four characters from DC comics since his initial entry as Barry Allen in the 1940s. Not to be confused, there was also his nephew Kid Flash and a weird villain called Reverse Flash.
The Flash was also known as the Scarlet Speedster but the Flash moniker is the best by far. He has a close friendship with Green Lantern. There was a female Flash too when Jesse Chambers stood in for the Flash for a brief period.

Red Tornado DC Comics
Made his debut in Justice League of America 1968
The only one with 'red' in their name this superhero is called John Smith but the initial Red Tonado was a woman called Ma Hunkel who fought crime in the 1940s. The modern RT has the ability to fly at supersonic speed and can create cyclones. He is one of the goodies and works for the Justice League of America. He joined forces with the trio of Impulse.
Young Justice and Teen Titans
Robin and Superboy to form Young Justice, a group of crime fighters similar to Teen Titans. Despite being killed more than 7 times and most recently by Solomon Grundy John's body still functions in the 31st century where superhero Wildfire controls it. I guess that superheroes never die or become old gracefully.
Arsenal DC Comics
Bow and arrow are his forte (originally called Speedy circa 1941)
Roy Harper Junior is known as Arsenal in the DC Comics Universe. Roy also goes by the name of Red Arrow when he is a member of the Justice League of America. He is a long time admired of Green Arrow (his guardian). When he was a teenager, and Teen Titan founder member, he was known by the name Speedy. During this time he teamed up with Green Arrow fighting crime.
Roy became a drug addict and had Black Canary to thank for helping him to make a full recovery. A bit of a womaniser he has dated other superheroes, namely, Dona Troy, Cheshire, Hawkgirl, Grace Choi and The Huntress, who was also an expert with a bow and arrow.
Captain Marvel DC Comics
The Marvel family (Shazam origins 1939)
The Marvel family consists of three superheros who actually shared their superhero abilities if all three were battling baddies at the same time. Billy Batson was poor and living on the streets when he discovered a mystery cave that was home to a wizard called Shazam. When Billy uttered the name 'Shazam' he transformed into a superhero with the wizards powers.
Mary Marvel, sister of Captain Marvel shared his powers when she uttered the wizards name. Their friend Freddy Freeman was known as Shazam and wore a blue superhero costume. Mary wore a white version and Captain Marvel is resplendent in red but he was once called the 'big red cheese'. The family first appeared in 1940 and Mary's entrance was 2 years later.

Bat-a-Rang Kate Kane
Her friend Nightwing provided her with a deadly weapon called the Batarang. It is not that she needs such a weapon because she is a martial arts ace. She also gets access to all of Batman's gadgets. Kate is a member of the Justice League of America. She made her debut in Detective Comics in 1956 and looks quite well for someone in their mid fifties.
