Albert Ferrus was a superhero, under the name Black Anvil, in the 1940's and possibly earlier. While attending city college, Ferrus was noted for being the best in football in which his home team score enormous wins, and was cited by a rival football coach of Tarryon University in the newspaper editorial, "like he's hammering on an anvil" regarding to the number of injured players tackled by Ferrus and causing Tarryon University to call off the game. Ferrus was later abducted into the Number of the Beast program and have been serving with the Paladins in the virtual 'City'. Eventually Ferrus and the other prisoners of the NOTB program escaped due to the help of the High.
