Bio: The successor to the original Black Talon, Samuel David Barone, wore the same costume as the original and was an ally of the Grim Reaper, operating in the New Orleans area. He first appeared in Avengers #152 (Oct 1976), created by Gerry Conway and John Buscema.
The Black Talon has battled the Avengers, West Coast Avengers, She-Hulk, and Deadpool (in which he was viciously mocked for his chicken costume). It was later revealed that the Black Talon resurrected Wonder Man the first time Wonder Man died.
When battling She-Hulk he formed X-Humed from four dead mutants Changeling, Scaleface, Living Diamond and Harry Leland but was unable to control all of them at once and Changeling was able to break his hold long enough for She-Hulk to triumph.
