    1 Was The Black Terror ever re-introduced into the Marvel Universe? How did his staying power compare to Two-Gun, Rawhide and company?

Black Terror was originally published by Pines from 1942 - 1949. He wasn't a 'western' character as the splash page of issue 13 implies, but more of a straight superhero strip.

Marvel never did anything with the character, but other companies did, notably AC Comics in the 1980's, and Dynamite revived him for their 'Project Superpowers' title in 2008.

    2 Was Volto a real (popular) comic title character?

No. Just created for those adverts.

    3 And most curiously, Oh Snap!, DID HOSTESS FRUIT PIES yoink the GRAPE NUTS FLAKES layout ad concept for the back of all those Marvel comics back in the day??!!

I wouldn't be surprised. The format is very similar.
