Evans, Bob. Bob Evans was created by Henry MacRae (Professor Coxheim, Kee-On-Ee, Jack Lloyd, Phantom Rider) and appeared in the film The Scarlet Streak (1925).

Bob Evans is a newspaper reporter who is contacted by Professor Richard Crawford, an inventor who has created (with the help of his beautiful daughter Mary) a ruby laser beam. Crawford wants to sell it, and Evans' articles will help increase its market value. Unfortunately, the Monk, an agent for an unidentified foreign power, reads the article and, seeing the value of the laser, steals it and kidnaps the Crawfords. After a fair amount of detecting and adventuring Evans kills the Monk and recovers both the Crawfords and the laser.
