Pharmacist Bob Benton, after repeated harassment from the local gang stumbled across a chemical compound he would later dub "Formic Ethers". These granted him enhanced strength, agility, and rendered his skin nigh-impenetrable.

Black Terror (created by Richard E. Hughes & Dan Gabrielson) first appeared in 1941's Exciting Comics #9
