This Tarzan-esque adventure story begins with this foreword: “American-born, college educated, Lion Man is a young scientist, sent by the United Nations to watch over the fearsome ‘Magic Mountain’ of the African Gold Coast. Within its crater lies the world’s largest deposit of Uranium enough to make an atom bomb that could destroy the world. Lion Man’s job is to report on the doings of any treacherous nation that might seek to carry away any of the lethal stuff for the purpose of war."

The Lion-Man's mischievous sidekick was a young war orphan named Bubba. They fought the villainous Doctor Blut Sangro, an evil figure, and his guide, Brossed the Beachcomber.
