A mysterious, jewel-covered statue called “The Green Goddess” is as dangerous as it is valuable. It contains an ancient formula for a powerful super-explosive that, in unscrupulous hands, could destroy the world.
The New Adventures of Tarzan
Ep. 8: Angry Gods
Tarzan survives the fall and grabs a floating log. Ula and her two bearers see him floating in the water and row to his rescue in a handy kayuka. Ula tells the rapidly recovering Tarzan that she has seen Raglan heading downstream in another canoe. Meantime, the hooded troops of the Lost City capture Martling and George. Nango, one of Ula’s bearers, witnesses this and informs Ula and Tarzan, who decide their rescue is the first mission. Ula and her men proceed to the Lost City via the river trail with N’Kima, while Tarzan cuts through the jungles by the trees.
Tarzan is intercepted by a patrol of hooded natives. As he fends them off, Martling and George are brought before the High Priest at the Lost City, and meet a nameless white man, who describes himself as “once known in the world of science, but 20 years ago I cast my lot in with these people”. Acting as interpreter for the High Priest, he tells Martling and George they must produce the Goddess – which Raglan has – or die. Ula reaches the Lost City entrance ahead of the waylaid Tarzan, at the same time, and is attacked by machete-wielding guards, who surround her and close in as she lets out a piercing scream!
In the African jungles, Tarzan kills a lion and saves the life of a demented Frenchman, who tells him that D’Arnot, Tarzan’s best friend is lost in the wilds of Guatemala.
Rushing to D’Arnot’s aid aboard the S.S. Wangai, Tarzan accidentally meets MAJOR MARLING, an archaelogolist leading an expedition to the Guatemalan jungles in the hope of locating the famous GREEN GODDESS – a priceless Mayan relic containing a fortune in gems. He casually becomes a part of a group including ALICE MARTLING, Martling’s daughter, GORDON HAMILTON, her fiance, and GEORGE, an admirer of the Ape-Man, who has stowed aboard with Nkima, Tarzan’s pet chimpanzee. ULA VALE, a mysterious woman, and RAGLAN, a racally explorer, trailing Martling to get posession of the document, dircting the expedition to the Goddess, are also passengers.
Learning that Martling has mailed the document to someone in Guatemala, the adventurers attack him in order to learn its whereabouts, but flee empty-handed when Tarzan comes to the rescue.
In Guatemala City, while Martling and Tarzan prepare for their expedition, Raglan gains possession of the document, escapes with it and starts for the jungle. They pursue him. However, Raglan, arriving at the point designated in the document, unearths the entrance to the secret underground passage leading to the lost City and the Green Goddess.
Tarzan’s party arrive and enter the Lost City, only to be seized by monster servers of QUEEN MAYA, in whose court they find D’Arnot a prisoner and behold the GREEN GODDESS. Maya declares all must die save Tarzan, who may remain as her consort. Tarzan, refusing, is strapped to the altar and Maya plunges her dagger toward his heart.
