Dyenis, Dr. Dr. Dyenis was created by the Mexican creators Jorge Cardeña Álvarez and Juan José Segura and appeared in the film El Superloco (1936). Dr. Dyenis is a Superhuman Mad Scientist. Dr. Dyenis has some eccentric theories about immortality. He has used his mental abilities to stop aging and to enhance his physical abilities, and he has, Frankenstein-style, made a living being out of the parts of dead humans, and yet the Mexican scientific establishment mocks him! He does have one loyal student, however—Alberto—but Alberto’s girlfriend comes between them, leading to Dyenis’ death at the hands of his creature.
