The Revenge Syndicate
A villain team which appeared only once in Bulletman #7 (September 16, 1942). The Revenge Syndicate was started by the Murder Prophet and joined by the Weeper and the Black Rat. At first they were at odds with each one wanting to be the chief of the group. The Weeper came up with the idea that they roll dice to see who would be chief, the person with the highest roll would go first; the person with the second highest would go second; and the person with the third highest would go third.
The Murder Prophet won the first roll. His plan was to rob an art museum, by pretending to be visitors, with the aid of the Black Rat emerging from the sewer with a machine gun. Bulletman and Bulletgirl stopped them, but they escaped.
The Weeper went second. His plan was for the Murder Prophet to pretend to be a psychic at a charity carnival after kidnapping the real one. The Murder Prophet told a superstitious rich woman who was running the carnival to move her money so it would not be stolen. They were going to steal the money while it was being moved and even steal the car. Bulletman and Bulletgirl stopped them after realising their plot. They lifted the car they were in and threw it in the lake. The Black Rat was thrown in also while trying to escape with the loot, but was revived by the cold water, and saved the Murder Prophet and the Weeper.
The three realized that Bulletman had thwarted their plans prior and they needed to eliminate him if they ever wanted to succeed. The Black Rat met several criminals, who agreed to pay $100,000 if he got rid of Bulletman.
The Black Rat went third. His plan was to send out a radio broadcast to lure Bulletman to an abandon shack. They set up a dummy of the Black Rat. Bulletman and Bulletgirl went inside the shack. The Revenge Sundicate went inside and beat up Bulletman. To their surprise Bulletman had set up a dummy of his own. Bulletman and Bulletgirl beat them up and a fire was started when the radio was broken which possibly killed them as nobody got out.
Only appearing in Bulletman #16. A rival to Mr Kaye, President of Acme Construction Co. Head of the Senesco Construction Co. He disguises himself as a worker to sabotage an underwater tunnel Kaye is having built, hoping the city will give him the contract. However Bulletman and Bulletgirl stop him.
