Dr. Carl Mortner, also known as Hans Glaub is the true secondary main antagonist of the 1985 James Bond movie, A View To A Kill.

He was portrayed by Willoughby Gray.


Glaub was a former Nazi scientist who served during World War II and used to perform steroid experiments on pregnant women in order to create a race of gifted super people. Though most of the pregnancies failed, the surviving babies born from his work turned out to be brilliant but psychopathic. One of the children was Max Zorin, who was taken in and raised by Glaub after his family died. After the war, Glaub fled with Zorin to the USSR, where they find employment in the KGB, where Glaub (changing his name to Carl Mortner) spent several years making steroids for their athletes.

In the film's events, Glaub continued his studies and organizes a doping program for Zorin's thoroughbred race horses, allowing Zorin to win horse races with ease by activating illegal horse steroids by means of implanted microchips; since the drugs are 'administered' during the race, they do not show up on blood tests taken beforehand, since the dose is dissolved into the system within a minute before tests can be taken afterwards. When the KGB learns about Zorin's activities that are considered to be unwelcome, Glaub and Zorin sever their ties with the KGB.

Later on, Glaub aids Zorin and Scarpine into destroying Silicon Valley that would grant them the main monopoly over microchip manufacture, but this was foiled by Bond and May Day (who sacrifices herself to save Silicon Valley in retaliation for Zorin's betrayal against her). After Bond sends Zorin to fall to his death in the San Francisco Bay, Glaub angrily attempts to kill Bond with a lit dynamite in revenge, but both he and Scarpine die by the explosion when Bond chops off the rope holding Zorin's blimp.



  • Glaub is the Bigger Bad of the film because if it were never for his experiments, Zorin never would have been created and the story never would have happened.
