List Of James Bond Jr. Characters

James Bond Jr. is a fictional character described as the nephew of Ian Fleming’s masterspy James Bond 007. The name “James Bond Junior” was first used in 1967 for an unsuccessful spinoff novel entitled The Adventures of James Bond Junior 003½ written by the pseudonymous R. D. Mascott. The idea of Bond having a nephew was used again in 1991 as an American animated series for television in which the title character defeats threats to the safety of the free world. The series was mildly successful and spawned six episode novelizations by John Peel writing as John Vincent, a 12-issue comic book series by Marvel Comics published in 1992, as well as a video game developed by Eurocom for the NES and Gray Matter for the SNES in 1991.

While revolving around the nephew of James Bond, no surviving relatives are mentioned in Fleming’s novels, even though he unknowingly conceives a child with former Japanese movie star Kissy Suzuki in You Only Live Twice. This son makes an appearance in a later short story by Raymond Benson titled “Blast from the Past.”

The use of "Jr." in the character's name is unusual in that this naming convention is generally reserved for sons as opposed to nephews and other indirect offspring. Alternatively, it has been proposed that Fleming's James Bond had a brother, also named James Bond, who is the father of James Bond Jr. The other misconception is that "Jr." is spelled the American English way, rather than the British English spelling of "Jnr".

Famous quotes containing the words list of, characters, list, james and/or bond:

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    No one of the characters in my novels has originated, so far as I know, in real life. If anything, the contrary was the case: persons playing a part in my life—the first twenty years of it—had about them something semi-fictitious.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    They robbed the Danville train.
    And the people they did say, for many miles away,
    ‘Twas the outlaws Frank and Jesse James.
    —Unknown. Jesse James (l. 6–8)

    Camillo. Prosperity’s the very bond of love,
    Whose fresh complexion and whose heart together
    Affliction alters.
    Perdita. One of these is true:
    I think affliction may subdue the cheek,
    But not take in the mind.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
