Doctor Voodoo. Hal Carey is a physician in the Brazilian jungles who is dubbed “Doctor Voodoo” by a local group of headhunters because of his use of modern medicine. He becomes ruler of “the fierce white Indians” thanks to single combat, and teams up with the Sheena-like Maxinya and her talking jaguar Jappa to fight evil in the forests. However, in later stories Carey and his native servant Nero are lost in the past and search for the Golden Flask which will return them to the present. Carey and Nero fight or meet King Richard the Conqueror, the Queen of the Giants, Crusaders, Huns, and vampires. He appears in stories with titles like "The Death Guards Ride," "The Castle of Doom," and "Battle with the Buccaneers."
