Synopsis
In 1790, a ship sunk due to a typhoon in the South Seas, and a man, his wife and their son survive, and drifted toward a tropical isle, where they existed on rare, life-giving herbs. Soon, the parents died, but the herbs allowed the boy to somehow survive. 150 years later, a ship stopped by the isle and rescued an old man, taking him to London. There, he found out he needed the herbs to live, he recreated the plant, which gave him super-strength. To fight crime, he set up crooks, then he tipped off the Police by radio messages as "Elixir---The Voice!"

Stan Aschmeier created the Voice, but the Who's Who does not credit him with writing the feature.
