Inter-Intel are a secret organisation that collects information’s about crimes all over the world, and shares it with the police when they need information’s. There are about 100 bureaus around the world with headquarter in NY.


The first contact Mandrake had with the organisation was when Inter-Intel found clues that indicated that the man behind several crimes could be "the Cobra", once defeated by Mandrake. Despite the fact that this was the first time Mandrake had contact with Inter-Intel he knows the organization already.

At the headquarter in NY Jed is the bureau head, but Inter-Intel are leaded by a mysterious Chief who have founded the organisation. His identity is only known by the board of directors.

At the HQ and behind a mysterious door marked with "Chief", there are an almost empty room just with a desk and a talking robot. Today we know that the mysterious Chief are identical with Hojo.

Due to the large amount of information about criminals all around the world Inter-Intel had to protect their organisation.

First the international organisation are secret, known by only by a few. Second all the entrances and exits are hidden. The one mostly used by Mandrake and his friends are through a car wash. Inside he go down below the street level and moved by a speeding sidewalk or an side moving elevator before a vast excalator brings him up in a large building. Sometimes Mandrake now standing in a maze of mirrors where green lights guiding him to the last entrances.

Inside the HQ, there are several people working with the information’s coming about crimes around the world. The goal is to have it all into a gigantic computer and by asking the computer could give an answer that is responsible for the crime just done.

Only a few other employees and agents are known – perhaps they do not use their real name when they are at work. Even the last name of Jed is a bit uncertain. Once his office door had the name Jed Carr, once at his desk it was a name shield with Jed Bart.

There is a direct hot line phone between the Inter-Intel HQ and Xanadu.
