Grey Claw. The Grey Claw was created by the Brazilian creators Francisco Armond and Renato Silva and appeared in the comic strip “A Garra Cinzata” (Gazetinha, 1937-1940). Dr. Stone is a Mad Scientist. Most people know him as an ordinary chemist, but he is secretly the masked crimelord the Grey Claw. He is capable of a wide range of enormities, including murdering a former colleague, Professor Cuberry, and putting his brain into a gorilla, and of brainwashing Cuberry’s secretary and making her commit crimes as the Lady in Black. The Claw also has a giant robot aiding him, but the robot and Inspector Higgins are eventually responsible for the Claw’s downfall.
