Steel, John. John Steel was created by the Canadian author Emmanuel Desrosiers and appeared in Roman Policier Les aventures de John Steel #1-8 (1941).

John Steel is a British Bellem. Some of his adventures verge on the fantastic, as in his confrontation with a Thuringian Mad Scientist who has grown a monster from a single cell.

Steel appears in stories with titles like "The Mystery of the Fortress," "The Four Dogs," and "The Thieves of Gold."
