Franz Argentblum is a German student at H.I.V.E. He was sent to the institute by his father, Heinrich Argentblum. 

History

Higher Institute of Villainous Education

Franz first appears in book one and is introduced asking when lunch is. The Contessa recognizes him as his father's son. They are both quite alike, although Franz appears to be unaware of the fact that his father is a prodigious supervillain.

He is put in the same room as Nigel and the two quickly become friends.

The Overlord Protocol

In book two both Franz and Nigel help to foil a plot to blow up the school. Francisco, Block and Tackle were all put under hynopsis by the Contessa so they had to follow her every order without being aware of what they were actually doing. Nigel and Franz see Block and Tackle carrying a bomb to the Geothermal power core at the centre of HIVE. The power core turns out to be built around the centre of the volcano.

Nigel tries to stop Block and Tackle which he suceeds in doing, taking them both out with a sleeper. Unfortunately, he is unaware of Colonol Francisco behind him until it is too late. Franz suddenly appears on the scene and leaps down from a flight of stairs, knocking Francisco over and saving his friend and in the end, the whole school, something which he never lets anyone forget.

Escape Velocity

Dreadnought

Rogue

Zero Hour

In this book Franz shows quite a talent in taking out people in the holographic training sessions, even managing to shoot out Wing at the end of the book.

Aftershock

In Aftershock Franz shoots down a helicopter after Nigel is shot by a sniper aboard it.  This is impressive as not even Raven thought it could be taken down.

Description

Franz has a love of food and is very fat. He has blond hair. He is often picked on along with his best friend, Nigel. Franz is sometimes singled out by Colonel Francisco in Tactical Education, and outside of lessons he is picked on by Block and Tackle.

Despite being a little timid at times, Franz is courageous and after a while, he develops quite a talent when it comes to combat situations, even managing to take down Wing at one stage.

As English is not his first language, his vocabulary is often unusual. Franz unsucessfully tries to recite a number of English phrases, such as saying "hornet in your hat", rather than the conventional "bee in your bonnet", or "clever biscuit" instead of "smart cookie".
