“Well, Tim, are we going to show these folks some action?”
Dedicated to helping “run-down” people

Most of this information is taken from Comic Vine:

At first Bob Benton was a normal pharmacist working on an experiment with his assistant, Tim Roland, to make a tonic that could, as Bob put it, help “run down people.” While working on the experiment Tim accidentally adds formic acid. After getting mad at Tim for adding the wrong chemical, Bob inhaled some of the resulting “Formic Ethers” and gained super strength and invulnerability.

Seeing the potential of his newly acquired powers, Bob decided to do something he’d always day-dreamed about: use his strength to fight crime and evil. It is then that he became the nemesis of evil, The Black Terror.

Believing that Bob may need help to wage his war on crime, Tim took it upon himself to take the Formic Ethers and develop the same powers as the Black Terror. Together they were known as the Terror Twins and went on to fight threats both domestic and foreign throughout World War II.

This writeup is of the original Golden Age version of The Black Terror – you can use it as the basis for any of the variant versions that have popped up over the years, as well. If you wanted to use the version from Project: Superpowers, for instance, you’d add a Cutlass 4 under powers because that version frequently uses a sword and probably give him a weaponry specialty.
