Jann pulls Pat out of the path of charging gorillas and goes off to try and find the source of the disturbance. Pat finds it instead when he stumbles upon a massive mastodon skeleton that appears to be moving on its own. The creature grabs him up in its trunk, and Pat's screams alert Jann to his troubles.Going to Pat's aid, Jann is unaware that Kabu, one of the natives -- seemingly involved in the whole ordeal -- does not wish Jann to come to Pat's aid and prepares a poison dart. As Jann fights with the creature, Kabu tries to shoot her with the dart, missing her by inches. When Jann asks how Kabu could betray her he tells the heroine that he had no choice. Suddenly out of the bushes comes a communist agent who explains that he is responsible for the "Screaming Terror". Freeing Pat, Jann and the others learn that communist agents were controlling the Screaming Terror in order to force animals and natives out of the area so that they can build an air field in the area. Jann and the others then jump and subdue the communist agent. Seizing the control device, Jann then uses it to pilot the Screaming Terror to the communist camp where he orders the machine to trample the communist agents to death. With the communists killed, Jann then destroys the control device, causing the Screaming Terror to crumble to pieces as well.
Appearing in "Vengeance of the Fire God!"Edit
Synopsis for "Vengeance of the Fire God!"Edit
Fires are ravaging across the jungles where Waku and his people live. Waku assures his people that it is the work of their fire god and that if they remain brave the flames will not hurt them. The Bantu people question Waku's words, all except his close friend Jobu who trusts him completely. Waku wins the confidence of his people when the fire dies shortly thereafter without harming any of the tribe. When a herd of rampaging elephants come after them, Waku has his people trick the large beasts into running off a cliff. In the aftermath, the elder Gukai warns Waku that their people will feel the wrath of the fire god.
The Bantu people return to their homes and soon after find that they have lost control over fire, as flints refuse to light, cooking burns and the eternal flame goes out, seemingly proving Gukai's prophecy. The Bantu people are angry and demand that Waku step down as they have been convinced that the fire god is not happy with his leadership. Seeking conference with Jobu, Waku agrees to step down as leader of the tribe, placing Jobu as his replacement.
Lalei expresses her upset that her lover Waku has been ousted as leader of the tribe, but Waku believes that this is but a trail to prove that he is worthy of leading his people. Soon after, things seemingly return to normal, making it appear as though the fire god was indeed mad at Waku. However that night, Waku spies someone starting up the eternal flame -- something that is never done by mortal hands -- and attacks the person responsible. To Waku's surprise the man turns out to be Jobu. Jobu explains that he sought to take control of the tribe, orchestrating things to make it look as though the fire gods were mad at Waku so he could take his place.In order to eliminate Waku, Jobu unleashes a cage full of leopards that attack the warrior. Waku is outnumbered, but still stands his ground when suddenly the grass in front of him sets on fire and burns the leopards alive. With the fight now equal, Waku challenges Jobu to fight one-on-one. However, Jobu attempts to flee the scene, but trips and falls on his own knife, fatally stabbing himself. Suddenly in the flames the fire god appears before Waku and informs the tribesman that he has proved himself worthy to lead his people. When Waku explains what happened to his people he is welcomed back as leader.
