Chemist Bob Benton and his assistant, Tim Roland, were working on an experiment to make a tonic that could, as Benton put it, “help run down people get pep.” While working late one night, Roland accidentally added formic acid. Inhaling some of the resulting “Formic Ethers”, Benton gained super-strength, endurance, speed and invulnerability.

Benton decided to do put his newfound powers to good use by fighting crime and evil as The Black Terror. Having gained the same powers as Benton, Roland took it upon himself to help his friend and mentor wage his war on villainy. Together they were known as the Terror Twins and went on to fight threats both domestic and foreign throughout World War II.

As the Allies made their way towards the heart of Hitler’s Fortress Europa, Hitler retreated to his bunker to regroup. A select group of so-called “mystery men” including  The Black Terror and Tim were sent into Berlin to capture Hitler and his generals but were caught in a mystical maelstrom conjured by sorcerer Rudolf von Sebottendorf, leader of the enigmatic Thule-Gesellschaft (English: The Thule Society). Benton awoke to find himself in an alternate dimension in which he had never existed and Tim was nowhere to be found.
