Nyoka. Nyoka was created by Alfred Batson and Ronald Davidson (Rex Bennett, The Lightning, Masked Marvel) and appeared in two movies and two comic books from 1941 to 1955, beginning with Jungle Girl.

Nyoka is a Jungle Hero. Nyoka is the daughter of Dr. Meredith, a kindly man who moved to Africa to help the sick and dying and to avoid being identified as his evil twin brother "Slick." Nyoka accompanied her father to Africa, and she grew up among the natives, learning their ways. Slick shows up, looking for diamonds, and kidnaps Nyoka’s father. Fortunately, Nyoka has become skilled in the ways of the jungle and stops Slick and saves her father. Nyoka is aided by the pilots Jack Stanton and Curly Rogers.
