Omar Mosely, who was secretly the Black Marvel, is a superhero and member of the Six American Warriors.


Omar originally worked as a driver and assistant to Dan Lyons who was originally supposed to be part of the reorganized Super Soldier program. However, Dan's father was an important politican and put a stop to his son's involvement. While Dan was disappointed, he supported Omar as a replacement as part of the program to recreate Super Soldier Serum that created Captain America. The serum was successful and granted Omar enhanced strength, agility and stamina and he became an agent of the Six American Warriors. However, realizing that racial tensions would not allow for a black superhero, Daniel Lyons was thought to be the man behind the mask. The fact of the Black Marvel's true identity was apprently kept a secret from many officials in the government as well as his teamates. After the loss of Captain America, Omar took the Captain's shield as a keepsake as retired his superhero identity. He was go on to become a scientist and college professor, devoting himself to conducting research to save the Captain. Omar also served as a teacher/mentor to Robbie Robertson.

After Captain America disappeared with Red Skull, Omar and the remaining Six protected the doomsday device.

When the Insidious Six tried to find the device, Omar rejoined the Six, the freed Captain America, and Spider-Man to stop them.


Black Marvel was voiced by Paul Winfield.

Because of the need to hid his skin, his costume was changed to be closer to Black Panther, another African American hero.
