BLACK SATAN: ANOTHER CHESLER SUPERHERO

Balladeer’s Blog’s recent look at the superhero pantheon of Harry A Chesler Publishing was pretty popular. To meet demand here is another Chesler superhero. I went ahead and added him to the main list, too. For many more Chesler heroes click HERE 

BBlack SatanLACK SATAN

Secret Identity: Howard Flynn, District Attorney

Origin: Like many in law enforcement Howard Flynn wearied of seeing powerful gangsters going unpunished. 

He adopted the costumed identity of Black Satan and went after those criminals that the law couldn’t touch.

First Appearance: Yankee Comics #1 (September 1941).

Powers:

Black Satan was in the peak of human condition and possessed greater agility than an Olympic gymnast. He was also a master of unarmed combat. This hero wielded a specially-designed gun that temporarily blinded people. That weapon facilitated dramatic departures and battles with multiple opponents at once. 

Comment: Like certain pulp heroes of old, Black Satan left a distinctive calling card at the sites of his activities so the cops and criminals would all know when he had struck.

By the way, if I had to guess this guy’s nom de guerre based only on his costume I don’t think Black Satan would be among my first HUNDRED guesses. “Angry Airline Pilot” would be, though.
