Now on to the Free Comics with The Black Terror!

The Black Terror. - Damn that dude had a kick ass costume did he not? Who is to say how far he would have gone had DC not gotten all Lawyered Up.

Check out this interesting article about all the Super-Lawsuits DC had going to take out characters they viewed as Superman ripoffs.

From io9...

Superman's powers include super-strength, super-breath... and super-lawyers? The iconic DC Comics character has been known to go after plenty of other strongmen in court, crushing any characters with more than a passing similarity. The most famous super-litigation was the 1951 case where the Man Of Steel killed Captain Marvel, the Superman-esque character who gets his powers from saying "Shazam!" But the world's most litigious hero has gone after plenty of other peers, and here's our history of super-lawsuits.

Actually, I don't know for sure that the lawsuits DC started had anything to do with the demise of The Black Terror - the timing seems right though - if there are any comic historians, please feel free to chime in. Until then, feel free to download his adventures here!

Here we have an issue where the Black Terror fights a Robot with a Knife and a Gun! If you don't download this comic, consider yourself permanently banned from the FBU blog!
