Sandow throws Aleister Crowley out of the blimp
Office of Secret Intelligence
Sandow grown wary of Lloyd Venture's research on the Orb and was unwilling to carry out his orders to kill Venture should he succeed in unlocking the device.
During an attack by Nikola Tesla, Venture was close to unlocking the Orb and Sandow remarks in a dark tone, "Well, so must Sandow," and walks over to Venture's chair and presumably kills him by breaking his neck.
However, in The Revenge Society it is revealed that in that very scene he merely broke the device, much to Venture's surprise. Sandow calmly replies to him, "My orders were to kill you". Relieved that Sandow didn't do as commanded, Venture says in a nervous tone, "Oh, well in that case thanks," and begs him to keep the whole Orb breaking incident a secret.
He and Venture then decided to hide the broken Orb from their descendants and later bodyguards.
