Bates, Dr. Dr. Bates was created by George Larkin and Lloyd Lonergan (Hassam Ali, John Hargreaves) and appeared in the film serial The Lurking Peril (1919).

Dr. Bates is an Evil Surgeon. Donald Britt is faced with financial ruin, and sells the rights to his posthumous brain to college professor Dr. Bates. Bates can’t wait to get his hands on Britt’s juicy brain, and is not willing to wait for Britt’s death to occur naturally, so Bates begins engineering Britt’s death. It doesn’t work.
