Danner, Kurt. Kurt Danner was created by “Peter Anker,” a Kay Nielsens Forlag pseudonym which in this case was used by the Danish author Niels Meyn (Count Basil, Gentleman Detective, Lord Kingsley, Lord Lister, John Mac Carty, Mister X, Modern Thief, Robert Sterling), and appeared in Kurt Danners Bedrifter #1-280 (1942-1947).

Kurt Danner is a world-traveling engineer, adventurer and explorer. He fights crime and evil around the world, taking on and defeating pirates in the Indian Ocean and China Sea, smugglers in Europe, and Soviet spies in Europe and Asia. He fights Femmes Fatale (the She-Scorpio), Mad Scientists, Jungle Heroes (like the Jungle Queen), Yellow Perils, werewolves, vampires, giant robots, Al Capone, a Fu Manchu (I) clone, and ape-men. After World War Two ended the authors of Kurt Danner’s Bedrifter promptly portrayed him as having been intimately involved in the Danish resistance during the war. Danner appeared in stories with titles like “Pearl Harbor” (Danner is involved in catching the Japanese responsible for the attack), “The Sulfuric Acid Demon,” and “The Vampire of Hong Kong.”
