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. 11: Death’s Fireworks
Just as Raglan fires, Tarzan lunges at him and the bullet passes harmlessly over his head. Raglan escapes after a brief struggle, but Tarzan has the Goddess! Joined by the others, he transports the totem to a nearby shack, where Martling safely opens it. A fortune in jewels tumbles out, along with the explosives formula written in ancient hieroglyphics, and a sample of the unknowns substance as well. They all agree they must immediately leave Guatemala, before Raglan can do them any more mischief.
Raglan’s associate, Captain Blade, is aware of this course of events, and has arranged with the port official that his wood schooner is the only one available for charter out of Guatemala. Unaware of his association with Raglan, Martling and George, Ula, and Tarzan all book passage, and they set sail later that day. Raglan is also aboard the ship, and Tarzan’s keen sense of smell alerts him that something is wrong. As night falls, a violent storm rises and Ula spots Raglan as he sneaks up on deck for a look around. She alerts Tarzan. Blade, learning of this, furiously shoots Raglan to death for giving the scheme away, then has Ula, Martling and George locked in their cabins.
The crew then becomes preoccupied with the hurricane, trying to save the ship, and Tarzan, still free, overcomes Blade and throws him overboard. Ula shoots the lock off her cabin door and joins Tarzan on deck. George and Martling remain below, tied up in their cabin. The hurricane is at its peak, and the ship begins to break up!
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.
