Synopsis for "Origin of the Black Marvel"Edit

A group of criminals storm the local power station and knock out the crew on site. Then they quickly destroy the generators, cutting power to the entire city. This is all part of a grander scheme, however before the crooks can pull their main job, they are attacked by the newest costumed hero: The Black Marvel. After beating the crooks into submission, the Black Marvel learns that they are going to be attack the local armory.

As the hero rushes of, he thinks back to the circumstances that led to him becoming the costumed hero that he is: Some time ago the Black Feet Indian Tribe were waiting for the ultimate passage of their medicine chief. His demands that his successor pass a series of tests that would prove him the pride of the Black Feet. This contest was left in the hands of Running Elk. None of the natives were able to pass the tests. Some days later young Dan Lyons came to the camp to pay respect to the passing chief due to the fact that he saved his father years ago. Hearing of the contest to find a successor, Dan would would accept the challenges and pass them all. He would then be given a costumed and christened the Black Marvel and told to fight against crime and injustice.

With his recollection over, the Black Marvel arrives at the scene of the armory and stops the crooks from robbing it. During the fight one of the crooks is fatally shot and tells the Black Marvel that this was all a plot to organize all the local mobs into one organization. With the rest of the crooks captured, the electricity is restored and the Black Marvel has the first notch for his bow.

Synopsis for "The Story of Mark Todd"Edit

The war effort in Europe is taking heavy hits as Poland, Denmark, Norway, Holland, Belgium and France are captured by Nazi forces, leaving the Allies to wonder if the Nazis are using a secret weapon to secure their victories. Meanwhile, out on a cruise ship on the Mediterannian, Mark Todd spots a Nazi U-Boat attempting to attack their ship. Diving overboard, Todd transforms into the Blazing Skull and redirects a torpedo away from their boat, saving the crew from certain death.

Returning to his cabin, Todd finds a telegram from his colleague Powell asking him to sneak into Berlin as he has important information. Changing back into the Blazing Skull, Todd jumps ship and is soon picked up by a French spy who helps smuggle him into Berlin for his meeting with Powell. Although his papers are identified as forgeries by the Gestapo, Todd manages to escape and smuggle himself into Nazi Germany. There he meets with Powell and learns that the Nazis are using an enervating gas that increases the strength of shells. However, the only person who knows how the technique works is a scientist named Metzer.

Getting the location of the secret lab, Todd once more goes into action as the Blazing Skull manages to kill Metzer and destroy his lab. Before he can escape, the Blazing Skull is captured and taken prisoner where he is tortured. Todd refuses to scream and when Hitler himself comes to visit, Todd's harsh recriminations cause the Fuhrer to break down in tears and need to be led away. That evening the Blazing Skull breaks free and escapes into the night.

  • No special notes.


Perhaps Metzer's Enervating Gas[Blazing Skull story] was used by the Bund[Captain America Comics#5(8/41)Captain America 3rd story--called Sleeping Gas in that story] and in various Gas/Vapor Guns used by Timely Comics Nazis(like Countess Mara).
