Demonico, Professor. Professor Demonico was created by Justin Shaw and appeared in a number of stories in The Ranger in 1933 and 1934, beginning with “The Kunakos are Coming” (The Ranger, Sept. 23, 1933).

Professor Demonico is a small man with black hair and a kindly face, who looks like a parson. But he is the master of the Kunakos, a band of semi-intelligent, twelve-feet high gorillas with incredible strength, and Demonico unleashes them on London. His intention is to begin with London, go on to Europe, and ultimately CONQUER THE WORLD! He is opposed by and eventually stopped by Martin Crane of the Yard.
