Dick Tracy Wiki

Al Kinda was a terrorist operative within the United States. He operated a small cell in Washington D.C. He had short dark hair and narrow eyes.

When B.O. Plenty and Gravel Gertie won a fortune in the lottery, Al Kinda and his associate Lottie Latté attempted to swindle the money from them in order to support a terrorist group in Afghanistan.

Through a series of misadventures, the Plentys' money was swapped with with a set of top-secret government missile codes, which Kinda also desired. The Plentys were able to escape from Kinda, but he crossed paths with them again when they got into a taxi that he had stolen.

Kinda attempted to blow up the Capitol building as a terrorist act. Kinda was shot and killed by Latté, who revealed herself to be a government agent.


  • Al Kinda's name is a play on al-Qaeda, the jihadist organization that claimed responsibility for the September 11th terrorist attacks in the United States.
