Gallardo, Dr. Dr. Gallardo was created by the Mexican creators Chano Urueta and José Benavides hijo and appeared in the movie serial El Signo de la Muerte (1939).

Dr. Gallardo is a kindly old professor and tour guide at a museum of anthropology in Mexico City. Or so he seems; he’s actually the head priest of an ancient Aztec cult which kidnaps and sacrifices women at the pyramid altar secretly hidden underneath Gallardo’s palatial country estate. Gallardo’s ultimate purpose is to enable the return of the evil Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent, into the world, and from there destroy all white men everywhere. Gallardo’s assistant Cantinflas and newspaper reporter Lola Ponce help uncover Gallardo’s iniquity and put an end to the cult.
