Last night on TCM I saw JUDEX, a French film from 1963 that remade a French movie serial from 1915. It was something of a proto-superhero adventure (though a trifle less than the promo copy indicated(, and the film had some connection with Fantomas.

Note: I moved this into Movies and TV when I noticed it was in the General Comics heading.

I'll have to keep an eye out for Judex -- I hadn't heard of it! According to the quotes in IMDB, the movie says "Judex" is Latin for "judge" or "avenger."

I've read that Judex was a possible inspiration for The Shadow.
