|~ Mondern day members of the Singh Brotherhood.|
The Singh Brotherhood is a historical global crime syndicate and the long-time adversaries of the The Phantom, and have made many appearances in Phantom comic books and comic strips throughout the years. The name has from time to time changed into "Sangh" in the Phantom comic strip and "Sengh" in the 1996 Phantom movie.
Although it has never been revealed when and how the Singh Brotherhood started, it is known that they have existed for many centuries. In 1536, they attacked a British merchant ship outside the coast of Bangalla, killing both Captain Christopher Walker and his crew. Only the son of the Captain survived, and he later on swore a sacred oath to fight evil, injustice and cruelty, and to put an end to the Brotherhood's activities. He later became The Phantom, The Ghost Who Walks.After originating The Phantom, the brotherhood have existed in many different incarnations throughout the centuries. As of today, they exist as a worldwide organisation of modern day pirates, smugglers, thieves, and hit men.
In the European Phantom stories published by Egmont, the modern leader of the brotherhood is Sandal Singh, daughter of Dogai Singh. In the US Phantom stories by Moonstone Books, the leader is Temur Singh.
In other media
The Brotherhood undergoes a drastic change in SyFy Television's 2009 miniseries The Phantom, becoming more like a corporation board with their leader Rhatib Singh (played by Cas Anvar) being the last direct deescendant of the Singh bloodline.
