Cub. Larry Davis is the cousin of George Davis, the Black Lion. Larry ends up serving as his sidekick and ward when Larry’s father and George’s brother Jon is killed. Like the Black Lion, the Cub is cat-like in his agility and strength and is a good fighter. The arch-enemy of the Black Lion and Cub is the eye-patch wearing, enjoyably ruthless German agent Blitz, one of the more spirited villains of the Golden Age. Cub appears in stories with titles like “Blitz and the Secret Formula” and “Blitz and the Watch Fob Clue.”
