Who is the first Black Supervillain?

So with all the talk about Black Panther being the first black superhero (in mainstream American comics at least), who is the first black supervillain?

According to what I found and depending what you think counts, it's either Black Manta who was introduced 1967 but only revealed to be black in the 70's, or it's Centurius who introduced in 1968 but clearly black from the start. If you know of any earlier examples, feel free to namedrop them.

Man-Ape is from 69, so you're probably correct. Although I wouldn't be surprised if there's a Black villain in the Golden Age that's best forgotten
