The Crusaders were a team of mostly Brittish heroes that fought the Axis forces during WW2. They first appeared in Invaders (Vol.1)# 14-15. Members included the American hero Spirit of '76 (who would later become the 2nd Captain America), as well as Brittish heroes such as Dyna-Mite, Ghost Girl, Cap'n Wings, Tommy Lightning, & ThunderFist.
The Crusaders were a part of an un-official DC and Marvel crossover of sorts. The Marvel Crusaders team was a play on DC's Freedom Fighters team & they appeared in issues of the Invaders, while DC's Crusaders team was a play on Marvel's Invaders team & they appeared in issues of Freedom Force. Neither team is to be confused with the Mighty Crusaders team that contains heroes from the Archie/Red Circle/Impact comics lines such as the Fly & the Shield.
