Phantomias, Patomas, Paperinik, or Superduck, as far as I know, is indeed
Italian. His first appearance (and also the story of his origin) was in
"Paperinik il diabolico vendicatore" (TL-706b: story by Guido Martina, art
by Carpi), in which Donald inherits a big old house which happens to have
been the secret headquartes of Phantomias, a 19th century thief.

I don't know if it's been drawn by any American artist (there seems to be
few entries for 'Superduck' in the INDUCKS), but I think it's the Great
Massimo de Vita the one who most has told about him.
