The Octopus was a wizened, wiry European criminal mastermind with a penchant for black bodysuits and a tendency to lapse into partial french, whose goal was to create a transcontinental criminal network. In order to do this, he allowed himself to be hired by Ben Bunsen's cousin Nicholas to kill Bunsen and steal his fortune. He had a number of allies including 'The Marksman' (a huge bearded man in a Deerstalker), 'The Conjurer' (a master of disguise) and 'The Inventor' (a fat, lazy man who created mechanical deathtraps). The Octopus was apparently financially wiped out by his ill-fated attempts to complete his mission, and ended up lamenting that perhaps honesty was the best policy after all.
The Octopus appeared in the humorous adventure strip Bunsen's Burner.
