The Sensational Character Find Of 1946--Uncle Blacky!!

It's Mary Batson's birthday!!

But they're being spied upon from above!!

Who is it?

Who the heck is Uncle Blacky?!?

Enjoy--that's the only explanation you're ever going to get!

But you have to admit--there is something inherently hilarious about a fat guy in a fake super-villain suit ordering mobsters around!

Well, Blacky is nothing if not colorful...

But Mary Marvel kicks the crap out of him!

As near as I can tell, this was the only appearance of Uncle Blacky ever.

Which is a shame. Because, I mean, just look at the guy!

You know, if you think about it, Uncle Blacky and his Crime Inc. would be the perfect foils, the great recurring villains for my proposed new Shazam Inc book...

From Mary Marvel #9 (1946)

I like the costume reference to Black Adam. Even though they don't mention him.

PS - Definitely bring Uncle Blacky & his gang back for Shazam Inc. But he'll need better weapons to go up against the entire Marvel Family.
