Beano Superstars – Dangerous Dan

Meet Dangerous Dan, Beanotown's top, secret agent!

I’m not supposed to tell you this, but because my file says you're extremely trustworthy, I’m going to let you in on some top secret information.

But we have to be quick as I’m always on the lookout for the agents of S.M.I.R.K. – the Secret Ministry of Intelligent Rotters Komittee, led by The Prefect. He’s always trying to break into our spy headquarters. But with my skills, quick-thinking and a little guidance from by best friend Agent Q, that will never happen. Not on my gadget-loaded watch, anyway. 

Hardly anyone knows about my secret agent life: my mum and my little sister Sienna don’t have a clue. My dad does, but that’s all I can say. Sorry. Top secret. Nobody at school – not my classmates or anyone in the school staff room – knows either. To them, I’m just the kid who’s always smartly dressed in a tuxedo and often disappears (but as you’ve realised, that’s in order to foil The Prefect and the rest of S.M.I.R.K.).

When I’m not ruining The Prefect’s day, I love being assigned new missions and trying out the latest spy gadgets. They’re the kind of accessories you’ll never see in the shops because they’re so secret. I love football and mince spies, too. Spies. Pies. Get it? 

Apart from S.M.I.R.K., I dislike changing my socks and sudoku. They’re almost as heinous as The Prefect. I’m sure people make up sudoku as they go along. One day, I hope Agent Q gives me some sort of sudoku solving gadget, then I’ll complete one, one day. 

My biggest fear is people finding out my big spy secret, so keep all this under your hat. That’s if you wear one. 

If you need to know anything else, check out my fact file below. May I remind this is all top secret and will delete itself in a few seconds. So hurry and remember, you didn’t see me, alright?
