Frank Wolff was a mathematical scholar who appears in Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon. Herge described Wolff as clever, with an honorary master's degree in Mathematics with Mechanics, but also very feeble and quiet. Wolff is the rocket engineer who assists Tintin's friend Professor Calculus both before and during the Syldavian expedition to the moon. However, Wolff is eventually exposed as a spy who was coerced into helping an unnamed foreign power to hijack the moon rockets, blackmailing him by use of his large gambling debts. Later on, he helps the others confront Boris Jorgen, who had stalked away on the Moon Rocket, which results in the latter's demise. On the return trip Wolff sacrifices himself for the survival of the group by throwing himself into space, ensuring the rest of the crew have enough oxygen to return to Earth with.
