Hercules [Joe Hercules]; a gang of saboteurs (villains, introduction for all)
Hercules accepts an invitation from a movie producer to play a jungle hero, only to suffer through the production and become faint at the movie premier. When the movie was beginning to become a hit, he flees again to the solitude of the country.
Neon [Tom Corbet]; Damus (villain, introduction); Otto Shickler (villain, introduction)
A European dictator is discovered by Neon in South America, where he worked with an ancient wizard named Damus. Damus conjured up evil demons and a dragon, but when Shickler turned his wrath upon the old man, Neon convinced Damus to defect.
