High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Secret Agent X-9 (1945) is a Universal movie serial based on the comic strip Secret Agent X-9. It was the second serial with this name, the first was released by Universal in 1937. Both sides in World War II attempt to control the secret of element 722, which can be used to create cheap aviation fuel. Secret Agent X-9 was based on the comic strip Secret Agent X-9 by Leslie Charteris and others. It was Universal's last comic strip adaptation (from 1936 to 1945, Universal almost made more serial adaptations of comic strips than both of their rivals, Columbia and Republic, combined). Secret Agent X-9 was a comic strip begun by writer Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon) and artist Alex Raymond (Flash Gordon). Syndicated by King Features, it ran from January 22, 1934 until February 10, 1996. X-9 was a nameless agent who worked for a nameless agency. X-9 acquired the name 'Phil Corrigan' in the 1940s and decades later the strip was renamed Secret Agent Corrigan. The nameless agency was also briefly the FBI when the FBI was in vogue, but when the FBI became less popular, references to it were dropped and the agency was nameless again.
