Sloane was a prodigy, a man who was good at practically everything.
He used his Olympic-level athletic ability and unsurpassed knowlege
to fight crime as the "Man of 1,000 Talents," Mr. Terrific.
He wore his rallying cry — "Fair Play"— unabashedly
on the front of his costume. He was a nominal member of the JSA during
the 1940s and was not present for the team's final appearance before
the HUAC committee. He'd been diverted by matters of family...
To anyone's knowledge, Terry Sloane never married, but he did leave
a family legacy. In October of 1951, he rceived a ransom note for his
brother Ned, who had supposedly been kidnapped by Debra Sinclair (Roulette),
a casino owner in New Orleans. (JSA #69) Terry
set out immediately for New Orleans but never found Ned. Instead, he
discovered that Roulette had borne a daughter by Ned named Veronica;
Ned was ashamed and fled the country. The ransom money was meant for
Veronica's future. But naturally, Terry could not abide his neice being
raised in a casino, and so he forceably took the girl. (#70) Terry
then raised Veronica himself, as his daughter. It seems Veronica eventually
married because in recent times, a second Roulette (Victoria Sinclair) has
surfaced, calling Terry her "grandfather." (JSA
After the JSA's gradual revival, he participated in only one JLA/JSA
team-up which was to be his last case. Terry was murdered at a
JLA meeting by the Spirit King. His death was very soon avenged by the
JSA with the help of the Spectre. (Justice League of America #171)
At one time he dated his personal assistant, Wanda Wilson.
The Super DC Calendar 1976 gave Terry Sloane's birthday as October 20.
