Mado. Mado was created by André Deed (Boireau) and appeared in the Italian film L'Uomo Meccanico (1921).

Mado is the leader of a gang of criminals in Rome. Mado discovers that Professor D'Ara has created an android with superhuman strength and speed, and Mado sends her gang to get the android’s blueprints. The gang kills D'Ara but fail to get the blueprints and are captured by the police. Mado escapes, kidnaps D'Ara's niece Elena, gets the android's blueprints from her, and uses D'Ara's android to commit crimes. Professor D'Ara's brother builds a second android and sends it after the first. The two destroy each other, and Mado is electrocuted while manipulating the android's control panel.
