Fantômas by Pierre Souvestre ( Book )
91 editions published between 1911 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The shocking debut of France’s most ruthless villain After dinner, the guests of the Marquise de Langrune amuse one another with tales of the chilling deeds of Fantômas, a fiendish criminal whose reach is limitless, whose thirst for mayhem can never be quenched. The next morning, young Charles Rambert leaves early to meet his father at the train station. When he returns, the chateau is in an uproar. The Marquise has been slaughtered in her bed. She was found not long after Rambert’s departure, her body soaked in blood, her neck severed all the way to the bone. Suspecting his son may be the killer, Charles’s father insists they leave immediately. But Inspector Juve sees the hand of Fantômas in the grisly deed, and in two other dastardly crimes that have Paris in an uproar: the brazen theft of Princess Sonia’s pocketbook and the murder of Lord Beltham, whose body was found stuffed in a trunk. Juve has pledged his life to apprehending the criminal mastermind and will stop at nothing to see Fantômas hang.

Fantô̂mas by Louis Feuillade ( Visual )
31 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Based on the phenomenally popular French pulp novellas, Loius Feuillade's outrageous, ambitious Fantô̂mas series became the gold standard of espionage serials in pre-WWI Europe, and laid the foundation for such immortal works as Feuillade's own Les Vampires and Fritz Lang's Dr. Mabuse films. René Navarre stars as the criminal lord of Paris, the master of disguise, the creeping assassin in black: Fantô̂mas. Over the course of five feature films, Fantô̂mas, along with his accomplices and mistresses, are pursued by the equally resourceful Inspector Juve and his friend, journalist Jerôme Fandor."--Container

Fantomas strikes again in this third installment in the intoxicating crime series. On Rue Norvins, the police find a famous heiress poisoned to death in the studio of a ceramics painter. The artist, in a state of partial paralysis, remembers nothing. These bare and baffling facts will lead newspaperman Jerome Fandor from the magnificent ballrooms of the aristocracy to the scrubby pubs of the Parisian underworld as his search for the truth uncovers ruined fortunes, desperate suicides, mistaken identities, and even romance. Never far from such evil and outrageous doings is a villain so mysterious, so extraordinary, so clever and cruel that he can only have one name: Fantomas!
