abstract
  • Dr Cornélius Kramm is the arch-villain in Gustave Le Rouge's eighteen issues long pulp-epic, Le Mysterieux Docteur Cornelius (1912-1913). In the series, Dr Cornélius is a renowned scientist and surgeon nicknamed The Sculptor of Human Flesh for his ability to completely alter a person's likeness. However, unbeknownst to the general public, Dr Cornélius is actually the master of a worldwide criminal organisation known as The Red Hand, an organisation that also includes the doctor's younger brother, Fritz Kramm and sociopath Baruch Jorgell. Throughout the series, Dr. Cornélius's evil schemes are opposed by a band of heroes from various nations, led by the aging scientist Prosper Bondonat. Eventually, these heroes manages to thwart the doctor's evil plans and bring down The Red Hand for good. After having killed Fritz, who had tried to assassinate him in order to take control of The Red Hand himself and Baruch, who had become a liability, Cornélius seemingly perishes, along with his servant, Leonello, in an explosion that completely destroys the doctor's laboratory. Le Rouge, however leaves the heroes (and the reader) uncertain regarding Cornélius's final fate.
