In this collection, readers are introduced to the foremost science hero Tom Strong and his remarkable exploits over a nearly century-long career. With a supporting cast of characters that include his wife Dhalua (the daughter of a mighty chieftain) his daughter Tesla, the enhanced ape King Solomon and his robotic valet, Peneuman, Tom finds himself battling in different times, worlds, and realms. And as he faces off against an eclectic group of enemies such as the ruthless Paul Saveen, the mechanized Az-techs, the prehuman monster Pangean and the Nazi super-woman Ingrid Weiss, our hero defeats muscle with his mind.
