The Black Cobra/James “Jim” Hornsby:

  • District Attorney/crimefighter.

No one is sure if he’s related to #2 or not (he may even BE #2), but if he is, he’d have to be #2's son. Jim and his younger brother, Bobby, teamed up in the early days leading up to the US involvement in World War 2 to fight crime stateside. Jim was killed in action by Nazis on US soil.
