The Black Marvel was in fact Omar Mosely, socialite Dan Lyons's chauffeur during the Second World War. Realizing the racial views of the day would not allow for a black man to be accepted in as a masked hero, Mosely led people to assume it was Lyons behind the mask. When Captain America appeared to be killed while preventing the Red Skull from activating a super weapon, Mosely became one of the "Six Forgotten Warriors" to guard the keys to the weapon. Years later the team reformed and worked with Spider-Man, who was attempting to thwart the Kingpin from attaining the weapon.

  • He was voiced by Paul Winfield.
  • In mainstream reality, Lyons was actually the Black Marvel.
