James Christopher is the real name of the legendary Intelligence Service agent designated as Operator #5. Armed with a .45 automatic and a flexible rapier concealed in his belt, he stood against the fearsome forces—both foreign and domestic—who were bent on destroying the United States of America. During the dark days of the Great Depression, when Europe was overrun by fascist dictators, he was our greatest secret agent. Unseen, impregnable, the strange war engine of a foreign power hovered over America, waiting the fatal moment to hurl death upon a thousand cities and towns. Foredoomed to destruction and desolation before the ravaging hordes of the Yellow Empire, bleak despair gripped the nation’s millions. And then men held their breath in agonizing hope — as Operator #5, single-handed, seized the last grim chance to save the United States! Adapted from the May, 1934 issue of Operator #5 Magazine.
