Poten, Victor. Victor Poten was created by Rock Hawley and appeared in the film Shadow of Chinatown (1936).

Victor Poten is a Mad Scientist. He is Eurasian, and hates whites, the Chinese, and just about everyone else because of his mixed race. The head of crime in San Francisco, the Yellow Peril Femme Fatale Sonya Rokoff, hires Poten to keep the tourists out of Chinatown and therefore hurt the businessmen of Chinatown, who are daring to disobey her. Poten agrees, and uses SCIENCE! weaponry, including a hypnotism machine, a heat beam, a lethal gas, bombs, and poisoned darts to kill off any intruders in the area. Poten and Rokoff are eventually defeated by Martin Andrews.
