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.


Continuity Notes

  • The narrative of this story states that the events in this tale happen before Fantastic Four #166-167. Those stories (printed six months earlier) end with the Thing being reverted back to human form a condition which lasts until Fantastic Four #175.
  • Ben believes that Ka-Zar should be in England according to the newspapers he has read. Ben is very much out of the loop, Ka-Zar learned of his British heritage and returned home in Daredevil #24 where he stayed for a short period of time before returning to the Savage Land in Incredible Hulk #109.
