Baron Girbel was a Nazi spy that was active during World War II. By the summer of 1942 he was located in Argentina and was operating a spy ring in that area. This ring was opposed by the newly formed costume hero known as El Gaucho (AKA the American Avenger) who forced Girbel to abandon him South American operations and attempt to smuggle Nazi spies into the United States through New York City.
This attempt was also foiled by El Gaucho who was also aboard the same ship that Baron Girbel and his men attempted to seize. They were easily defeated and Girbel and his men were last seen being handed into the custody of the New York Port Authority.
His fate following the war is unrevealed.
