Synopsis for "Into the Savage Land!"
When Reed Richards picks up strange volcanic activity in the Savage Land, he sends the Thing to investigate on a solo mission. There he meets up with Ka-Zar and Zabu who agree to help the Thing having seen strangers in the Savage Land.
After battling a T-Rex, Thing, Ka-Zar and Zabu find an army of men under the command of Volcanus who hopes to use the volcanic energy of the Savage Land for his own ends. After a brief battle, the two heroes are incapacitated by Volcanus and his men and put in an iron cage suspended over a volcano.
Breaking free, the Thing and Ka-Zar battle Volcanus one more time, making short work of his men and in the final confrontation with Volcanus, Volcanus falls into the lava in the volcano.

- Ben believes that Ka-Zar should be in England according to the newspapers he has read.
