Nelson, Power. "It is the year 1982, and civilization, exhaused by the second and third World Wars, has been conquered by a Mongol horde! The ruler of the world is Emperor Seng I! From his palace in New-New York, he governs with despotic might all civilized people, who groan under his oppression!" Power Nelson, a young man, is chosen by a group of scientists to be the test subject for a special experiment. It works, giving him "the strength of a steam engine and the hardness of tempered steel." With these Power Nelson fights against the rule of the Yellow Peril Emperor Seng I.
