Kramm, Doctor Cornélius. Dr. Cornélius Kramm was created by the French author Gustave Le Rouge (Charley Colmes, Robert Darvel, Todd Marvel) and appeared in Le Mystérieux Docteur Cornélius #1-18 (1912-1913); the stories were reprinted in Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.

Dr. Cornélius Kramm is a Evil Surgeon Mad Scientist—he is “the Sculptor of Human Flesh”—who is trying to CONQUER THE WORLD! from his opulent apartment and the lunatic asylum he maintains in New York City. On Kramm’s side are his brother Fritz, the sadistic Baruch Jorgell, a billionaire’s son with a love for electrocution, and the Red Hand, a vast international crime empire whose headquarters lie on Hanged Man’s Island. Kramm is opposed by the easygoing naturalist Prosper Bondonnat. Their struggle ranges across the globe and took place on every continent and sea, with Bondonnat and an alliance of heroes eventually triumphing over Kramm. Kramm appears in stories with titles like "The Sculptor of Human Flesh," "Knights of Chloroform," and "The Portrait of Lucrèce Borgia."
