Duarte, Dr. Dr. Duarte was created by the Mexican creators José Bohr and Xavier Davila and appeared in the film Herencia Macabre (1939).

Dr. Duarte is an Evil Surgeon. Dr. Duarte is a famous plastic surgeon with a theory: ugly people are evil, pretty people are good, so that when Duarte improves someone’s looks, their personality changes as well. Unfortunately, his wife cheating on him with his assistant makes him…tetchy…and he injects his wife with a disfiguring virus, and then keeps her prisoner in his lab. Duarte then gets vengeance on his philandering assistant before he dies.
