Stars and Stripes 3 pg 26

Who is familiar with this incarnation? Comments?

Only appeared in the one issue. The publisher, Centaur, was gone after 1941, although before then it gave us the Amazing Man by Namor's creator Bill Everett. The company had their own underwater hero, the Shark but it was not by Everett. Amazing Man would be an influence on Charlton's Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt as well as Marvel's Iron Fist. Marvel would created a version of Amazing Man with the Prince of Orphans

At Centaur, the creator of the Human Torch, Carl Burgos created comics' first cyborg hero the Iron Skull. Tarpe Mills who created the comic strip Miss Fury that was reprinted by Timely Comics also created various characters for the company before moving on to the comic strips. Several of the characters were updated for the super team The Protectors published by Malibu Comics which Marvel bought out but has not made use of. That title made use of but not limited to: Masked Marvel, Amazing Man, Mighty Man, the Ferret, Airman, the Clock (only in his non-masked man identity), Prince Zardi the Eternal Man, Fantoman/Phantom of the Fair renamed as Gravestone, the Shark, Iron Skull, and the villainous Great Question

As far as their Black Panther, he was not part of any of the updates. This story doesn't give any substantial background to the character, his origin, real name, nor motivations. However, it is well-drawn as much of the Centaur line was given the time-period.
