In truth, Janus was actually an enemy of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. (The Higher United Nations Defense Enforcement Reserves) planted in the organization by S.P.I.D.E.R., an evil organization bent on world conquest. He was a powerful agent, expert in wrestling and karate.

I was shocked! One of the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents (in issue #7) killed off! The story was reprinted in T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #18.
He died by being shot a half-dozen times in the back by one of the Warlord's minions as he tried to warn his fellow agents about an ambush.It was violent, gripping and he was never brought back!

A new Mentor, Toby Henston, was incorporated in the DC Comics' T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents series.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Tower Comics. I even mailed in coupons, along with a quarter, for the comics I missed and received those comics in the mail. It was a fun time!
