Astron. When the Romans threatened Europe Astron, the immortal guardian of Cleopatra’s Flame of Eternal Youth, fled to a secret jungle isle. She stayed there for centuries until discovered by an American pilot, who she falls in love with and who she helps against the Germans. She has control over the crocodiles of the island, hence her title “The Crocodile Queen.” She appears in stories with titles like “The Scorpionese Men,” “The Skeletons’ War on Flesh People,” and “The Wizard of the Horned Frogs.”
