Vedders, John. John Vedders was created by Frank Gruber (Otis Beagle, Johnny Fletcher, Simon Lash, Captain March, Oliver Quade, Jim Strong, Sam Vedder) and appeared in eleven stories in Operator #5 and Secret Service Operator #5 from 1935 to 1937, beginning with “Death in Disguise” (Operator #5, Apr. 1935).

Captain John Vedders is an agent of U.S. Army Intelligence Corps and leads the fight against America’s Yellow Peril enemies. Vedders is an ace of disguise, easily capable of making himself look like a Spaniard. Vedders is also a hard man, quite happy to waterboard a traitor if it will get Vedders the formula of a new poison gas.
