Black Lion. George Davis, a very successful and therefore bored big game hunter, decides to go after The Most Dangerous Game and begins hunting criminals as the Black Lion. He is helped by Cub. He is never specifically said to have superpowers, but the stories show them surviving otherwise mortal wounds in superhuman fashion. He is also cat-like in his agility and strength and is a good fighter. The Black Lion’s arch-enemy is the eye-patch wearing, enjoyably ruthless German agent Blitz, one of the more spirited villains of the Golden Age. The Black Lion appears in stories with titles like “Blitz and the Secret Formula” and “Blitz and the Watch Fob Clue.”
