Laslo Pevely pre-transformation

Laslo Pevely was the victim of a car accident who, for reasons which were never made entirely clear, was injected with the blood of a mad dog by the man who found him, Dr. John Storm. Pevely, who suffered amnesia as a result of the accident, subsequently found himself transformed whenever evil was near into a vampiric creature who would wreak terrible vengeance on the perpetrators.[2]

Terror's original appearance.

On January 30, 1941, the Terror was one of the many Americans in Washington, D.C. to give a gift to President Roosevelt on his 59th birthday. The festivities were marred by a gift from the Life-Like Doll Company: a high ranking military official murdered and shrunk to the size of a doll. The Terror visited the company, exposing it as a front for the Nazi Fifth Column. After shutting down the operation, the Terror received a commendation from the President himself.[3]

Turning his attention to organized crime, the Terror broke up a gang of crooks who targeted only small businesses due to their lack of security.[4] Next, the Terror became interested in the events of World War II. He learned of Nazis tricking refugees into slavery in Africa by promising them safe passage to America and brought down the operation, freeing the slaves before returning to America.[5]

Back home, the Terror next clashed with Poison, Inc. led by the aged mobster known simply as the "Old One". This group were murderers for hire who poisoned their targets. Capturing the gang, the Old One poisoned himself to avoid capture.[6] In his last recorded solo adventure of the '40s, the Terror stopped the insurance bilking scheme of mobster Bull Murdock and Mr. Z.[7]

Modern Age

In later years, he lost his powers but regained them in time to help the She-Hulk combat a cosmic threat.[8]
