The Shark. The Shark was created by L. Ron Hubbard (Steve Galbraith, Jan Palmer), George M. Merrick, George Rosener, and Elmer Clifton (The Eagle (I)), and appeared in the movie serial The Secret of Treasure Island (1938).

Brave newsman Larry Kent is investigating the disappearance of a fellow reporter, and the trail leads to a remote island owned by wealthy recluse Carter Collins. What Kent only gradually finds out is that there is a valuable treasure buried somewhere on the island, and Collins is looking for it. Kent teams up with the daughter of an old adventurer. They are opposed by the Shark (secretly Collins), a gang leader who has not just mooks-a-plenty, but SCIENCE! weaponry created by the Mad Scientist Dr. X.
