Paul Pope traces the history of the masked super-villain to France:

Decades before Lex Luthor, The Joker, Diabolik, Satanik, Catwoman, Fu Manchu, Doctor Mabuse and all the rest, there was Fantomas, arguably the first costumed super-criminal ever, who terrorized Paris in his monthly magazine appearances.

I’ve mentioned it before, but Pope’s blog is a gem — full of fun insights and sketches.
