Random Comic Book Splash Page: USA Comics #3

Captain Terror battles the Fifth Column in this splash page from the cover story in USA COMICS #3, which hit newsstands in the summer of 1941. It was published by Timely Comics, edited by the legendary Joe Simon, drawn by Mike Suchorsky, and quite possibly written by Stan Lee.

Captain Terror has no superpowers, but is good at busting the heads of traitorous gypsies, as seen here in "The Magic Crystal of Death." Captain Terror appeared only in three issues of USA Comics. After 54 years, writer Mark Gruenwald brought him back as an old man to attend a Golden Age Superheroes reunion in CAPTAIN AMERICA #442.
