Meredith, Burton. Burton Meredith was created by Dorothy Howell and George B. Seitz (Elaine Dodge, Pauline Hargrave, Laughing Mask, Phantom (I), Dr. Santro, Pearl Travers, Velvet Fingers) and appeared in the film serial Ransom (1928).

Burton Meredith is an inventor who creates a lethal nerve gas for the U.S. government. Unfortunately, Wu Fang, a Yellow Peril and the leader of a death cult, is also interested in the formula, and he kidnaps Bobby, the son of Meredith’s girlfriend Lois Brewster. After a number of fights and shoot-outs Meredith and a squad of heavily-armed government agents storm Wu Fang's headquarters and kill Wu Fang and his men.
