Cheng-Tu. Cheng-Tu was created by the Spanish creator R. Beyloc and appeared in Cheng-Tu #1-5 (1945).

Cheng-Tu is a Yellow Peril. With buck teeth and big glasses, Cheng-Tu is a summation of years of Fu Manchu (I) lifts. Cheng-Tu wars on the white Western world using atomic torpedoes, torture chambers, and subterranean vehicles. His malign plots are continually foiled by two brave young Spaniards, Navarro and Cristina. He appears in stories with titles like “The Amphibian Torpedo,” “The Hanging City,” and “The Madness of Cheng-Tu.”
