A friend of Stooge Viller, Professor Emirc enlisted Stooge to sell his invented weapons to hoods on the street. Emirc’s specialty was using pigs’ feet tendons to fire pistols as they dry, long after the criminal is gone. This odd trademark led Tracy to him on his next purchase of pig feet. Viller and Emeric captured Tracy when he came to arrest them and left him in a burning building while they escaped. Tracy survived and was able to track down Stooge through his daughter. We are not sure what became of Emirc.
Emirc is Crime spelled backwards.
