Black Terror Action Figure by Fresh Monkey Fiction

Fresh Monkey Fiction is gearing up to launch a Kickstarter Campaign to bring you a fresh line of 4.5" Golden Age hero and villain action figures, much in the style (to my eye) of the classic Marvel Secret Wars action figure line! They have yet to reveal all the details (or the full figure line-up) but they have revealed one figure that has me pretty excited: The Black Terror!

Now I admit I don't know much about The Black Terror. I was only introduced to him via Dynamite Entertainment's 'Project Superpowers' comics a few years back. But I love his character design and I love the Golden Age, I of course love a nifty action figure, and the Secret Wars line holds a spot in my heart as one of my favorite childhood toylines (even though I only owned three of them!) so this Black Terror is an absolute 'win' for me!

The rest of Series 1 has yet to be revealed. Feel free to peruse the Public Domain Super Heroes wiki and speculate to your heart's content. And stay tuned to Fresh Monkey Fiction on Facebook for up to the minute updates on the Kickstarter Campaign that will bring these guys out to the public in all their plastic glory!

And to learn more about The Black Terror, check him out on the Public Domain Super Heroes wiki, or download his early adventures at The Digital Comic Museum!

Thanks to Battlegrip for the tip!


  1. Oh. My. God.

    "Super Wizard" -has- to be Fletcher Hanks' Stardust the Super-Wizard. A buddy of mine used to subscribe to a newsletter/email [this was, probably, like 2002/2003] that included scans of old Golden Age stories, which introduced me to dozens of bizarre and fantastic characters; Stardust was the absolute best.


    Black Terror's another old favorite, so this is definitely a project I'm gonna have to keep an eye on.

    1. Have to agree on this one, these look amazing and I love the current retro-style action figure renaissance we're enjoying at the moment. May have to look into supporting the Kickstarter...

      Stardust does seem like a no-brainer for this line, as his adventures were PURE insanity. He was one of those "I have whatever power will get the job accomplished right now!" sort of uber-heroes, and some of his punishments were ridiculously heavy-handed.

  2. Awesomeness! I have interest in this.

  3. Looks like they would fit in well with Kenner's Batman the animated series figures too. This guy could be a Batman villain!

  4. Glad you all like what you are seeing so far....keep those guesses coming. Feel free to post on our facebook page as well. We're also planning on a secret 5th figure (if I can get things lined up) so if you like Warlords from space I think you might dig him.

  5. I'm liking the look of the Black Terror. It's nice to see cloth capes in that scale again.

    I mentioned it on their Facebook page, but I'm really hoping the Avenging Hero up there is the Golden Age Daredevil.
