Killing aka Kilink aka Satanik Fumetti
Killing aka Kilink (Turkey), Kiling (Argentina), and Satanik (France) started life in 1965 as a Fumetti from Italy.
A masked and costumed Super Villain in a tradition that started with Fantômas, and was preceded by DIABOLIK and KRIMINAL (note the similar skeletal attire) , Killing's tales were more violent and sexual than his predecessors. The original Italian photo-novels ran into censorship problems and ended after two years.
Turkey made at least 10 movies under the name Kilink.
To further complicate matters the creator of Kriminal created an Italian female Super Villain called Satanik.
