Burbank is the most mysterious of The Shadow's agents. Very little is known about his past or personal life. How or why he was recruited in the first place is still a riddle.

Since he is quite skilled at electronics, wire tapping and tracking information, his chief duty is central communications for The Shadow and his network of agents and gathering needed facts. Some may argue that he is the most vital person of The Shadow's organization, as he is the only agent able to report directly to The Shadow when he is in his private sanctum. This is done through a special AirWire radio system.

Burbank was created by Walter B. Gibson, first appearing in Shadow Magazine #2 (1931).
