Mister Terrific: A History
Michael Holt debuted in 1997, having adopted the alias of “Mister Terrific” after the passing of Terry Slone. His character was first featured in Issue 54 of John Ostrander and Tom Mandrake’s, Spectre (Vol. 3).
For the hero known as Mister Terrific, the term “Fair Play” isn’t just a corny old motto, it’s a truth to live by. During the Golden Age, genius millionaire Terry Sloan used his considerable intellects and combat skills to become a masked vigilante. Seeking to not only fight criminals, he wore the term “Fair Play” on his costume as a way of sending a message to impressionable youths to not take the easy way out, and always fight a fair game. He served as a member of the Justice Society of America, before ultimately being killed by an old enemy. But it was his successor Michael Holt who truly took the name and legacy of Mister Terrific to new heights years later.
A master of many talents and skills, alike, Mister Terrific leaves an indisputable impression on the DC Universe that can only be described by so apropos a word as “terrific”!
