On alot of sites, and even in the DK 007 book, when the villains are listed for "You Only Live Twice", only Mr. Osato and Helga Brandt are ever mentioned under the "henchmen" category. What about Hans? When both Osato and Helga were losers who both got killed by Blofeld for that reason, they are always given attention before (or usualy in place of) Hans. While introduced late in the film, he plays a pretty important role in the story. He takes care of Blofeld's pirahnas, and is given the task of destroying the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. rocket once it has captured the 2nd American shuttle. Not only that, but he even gets a brief (but still cool) fight scene with 007 himself, in which he beats the crap out of poor James. So why is it that he's hardly ever mentioned, while Osato and Helga get all the attention?

It's a very good point Mr. X. Hans is the invisible henchman. Heck, Vargas from THUNDERBALL get's more press than poor Hans.

You know, Stamper from TND sure looks a lot like Hans. Could Hans have been Stamper's father? :)

Well that could explain why Stamper seemed to depise 007 even BEFORE the deaths of Carver and Doctor Kaufman....must've been pissed at him for throwing dear old dad into the pirahna pool....
