In Mexico, Profiro Juarez Rivera and Miguel (presumably a relative of his) saw a movie about the Black Terror and were inspired to take up the mantle of the Terror Twins themselves to fight bandits. They wore store-bought Terror Twin uniforms with blue sombreros. The Mexican Terror Twins fought Jose Fernando's bandits and were spotted by American photographers, who sent pictures of them back to the USA. The real Black Terror and Tim were rather surprised to read that they were fighting bandits in Mexico and went down to find out what was going on. The four Terrors joined together to fight the bandits, and the Black Terror and Tim let the Mexican Terror Twins keep their uniforms.

Although rather stereotypically portrayed, the Black Terror of Mexico is a heroic and resourceful fighter. He has no powers but is skilled in horseback riding and lassoing.

  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
