Black Marvel was an Indian warrior from the Blackfeet tribe who came to the aid of a caravan of settlers who had been attacked by the Comanches. Among the settlers there was also Malcon Lyons, the grandfather of Dan Lyons, the future Black Marvel, and also his still infant father. The day after the assault, Malcom spoke to his wife, telling her about the mysterious warrior who had saved their lives, and since the warrior had his face painted black he called it "Black Marvel."[1]
