Zorka, Alex. Alex Zorka was created by Wyllis Cooper and appeared in the film serial The Phantom Creeps (1939).

Dr. Alex Zorka is a Mad Scientist who plans to CONQUER THE WORLD! He gets taken down by plucky newspaperwoman Jean Drew and square-jawed military officer Captain Bob West, but not before giving them a run for their money with his SCIENCE! weapons, including his “devisualizer belt” (which makes him invisible), killer robot, suspended animation gas, and mechanical, explosive “death spiders.”
