Garin. Garin was created by the Russian author Alexei Tolstoy (Los, Russian Scientist) and appeared in Giperboloid Inzhenera Garina (1926). Garin is an American engineer who invents the "hyperboloid," a laser-like heat ray, and uses it to try to CONQUER THE WORLD! He discovers a massive deposit of gold and claims it, overcoming various sleazy Europeans and corrupt Americans on the way. He threatens the world with ecological disaster and briefly succeeds in ruling the decadent, capitalist United States before he is toppled thanks to the efforts of a sexy adventuress and a poor-but-honest Russian policeman.
