The Origins of James Bond
Created by British author Ian Fleming, this British Secret Service agent started out his adventures in twelve novels, and nine short stories, before being adapted to an iconic, and long-running film series. Interestingly, the character was modeled after the author, as he was a jet-setting womanizer with a military background; and his real world friend, an MI6 spy with a love of fast cars and pretty women. Showing no signs of dimming from the public consciousness, this secret agent continues to keep the world safe from diabolical masterminds, while wielding fantastical gadgets, driving spectacular cars, and always getting the girl.
