Strong, Doc. 100 years after World War Two destroyed human civilization, the world is in ruins, and a “vast barbaric horde from some forgotten corner of Asia descends on a trembling world.” Opposing them are a handful of white men and women, including “Doc Strong, famous scientist, Alice Rayburn, an atomic chemist, and Professor Harrison, electrical engineer.” They go to an abandoned Pacific island and create a new civilization, with advanced technology of Strong’s creation. After defeating the barbarians, they clash with Martians, who eventually become Strong’s allies. In addition to his human allies he also has a giant robot, King, to help him.
