Johann Bauer is a fictional character in the ABC daytime drama General Hospital.

He has been portrayed by Max Decker[1] since January 21, 2022.

Storylines

In January 2022, Victor Cassadine crashes Luke Spencer's memorial service at The Haunted Star with a henchman named Johann. Laura Collins tells them to leave and Victor explains that Johann isn't just there for him, he is there for all of the people in the room. Luke may be dead but he has a long list of enemies who are very much alive.

Anna Devane tells Victor to leave and Felicia Scorpio threatens to call Mac Scorpio. Curtis Ashford and Spencer Cassadine try to reason with Victor. Spencer tells Victor that a gentleman shouldn't stay when he is asked to leave and Victor agrees and goes with Johann.

Dante Falconeri finds a giant TV and wonders who was trying to send a message. Anna mentions that she and Felicia heard a crash and found a flash drive with a message that says "Play me" (presumably left by Johann). The flash drive contains a video of Helena Cassadine gloating about Luke being dead. Laura turns off the video when she has heard enough.

Later Victor and Johann walk into Charlie's Pub and find Scott Baldwin, Sonny Corinthos, and Robert Scorpio. He insults Scott and Luke which makes Scott and Sonny mad enough to team up against Victor and Johann. During the fight, Johann grabs hold of Sonny in a bear hug but he frees himself and punches Johann in the face. Sonny taunts Johann to continue fighting but Phyllis Caulfield pulls Sonny away as she is furious that the men made a mess of her place.

Phyllis wants to know who will pay for the damages. Everyone argues until Robert says they have a memorial to attend and they leave. Victor praises Johann for the fight. He says the hours at the gym are paying off and Johann has a nice fat bonus coming.

Victor and Johann help Phyllis straighten up the tables that were knocked over. Victor asks for a bottle of top-shelf brandy and gives Phyllis a generous tip. Victor mentions to himself that the people of Port Charles are in for a big surprise.

On January 26, Johann interrupts Victor as he is talking to a nurse at GH. Johann asks for an extra blanket for his aunt as she has been asking for one for some time. He thinks the request got lost in the shift change. The nurse apologizes and goes with Johann while leaving Victor alone to check Maxie's records which the nurse just pulled up on the computer.

On January 28, Johann comes up behind Valentin and chloroforms him in the hospital parking garage before putting his unconscious body in the back of Victor's car as Victor watches.

On February 3, Victor calls Johann and tells his henchman to let him know when the package arrives. Later Johann tells Victor the package (spike strips) has arrived. Meanwhile Peter's prison transport van has all four tires punctured on its way to Pentonville Penitentiary.

On February 22, Sam shows Laura and Robert a picture of Victor meeting with a henchman. Laura remembers Victor introducing the henchman as Johann during Luke's memorial on the Haunted Star. Robert says he will look for more information on Johann.

Later, Robert says that a contract identified the man as Johann Bauer. Johann was last located in Innsbruck, Austria around Christmas. Laura says that is the same area where Luke died and she suspects Victor was behind his death.

On March 24, Victor and Johann meet in the open as Victor believes they should act like they’ve done nothing wrong (referring to Victor showing Drew a tarot card to hypnotize him). Victor thinks Drew doesn’t remember Operation Demeter. Johann says that Victor had to kill Luke who was getting too close to the truth about what Victor was planning. He will do anything for the cause but he won’t be Victor's fall guy. Victor says not to worry as he has someone else in mind. Ava interrupts them and Victor thanks Johann for the "business" talk and allows him to leave.

On April 6, Victor tells Johann he has to go overseas for business. He wants Johann to keep an eye on things in town while he is gone for a week or two. Johann says that Kurt was just exposed and it could look like he is fleeing the country. Victor jokes that he is and then Johann says that Laura, Anna, and Robert suspect them to be involved in the incident in Austria. Victor says that they didn’t and the authorities will soon find a much more credible suspect.

Victor leaves town on April 7 and returns on May 26.
