The criminal aces of America had sent for him to lead the underworld’s horror horde . . . . Another man was on the black waters of the Atlantic. He guided a speedboat to the gigantic liner. This lone man was Secret Agent “X”—and he was going aboard the liner to stop Doctor Marko from reaching America. But even “X” was stunned at Doctor Marko’s ghastly greeting.
The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Faceless and unsung, “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.

A man of keen intellect, “X” showed a mastery of modern science, various languages, and ability to decipher codes.
