Fantômas is a fictional character created by French writers Marcel Allain (1885-1969) and Pierre Souvestre (1874-1914). Inspector Juve and journalist Jerome Fandor died when the ship S.S. Gigantic went down off the coast of Newfoundland. Also dead in the shipwreck was their arch-enemy, the master criminal Fantomas. How then, ten years later, do Juve and Fandor find them selves alive on a roof-top in Marseilles?
