Oran of the Jungle was lost in the African jungles as a child. He grew up strong, but that strength attracted attention from the wrong people including unscrupulous boxing promoters and slavers.

He traveled to America both to fight as a boxer and also to find his parents. He reunited with his father, and then traveled back to the jungle and became a boxing Tarzan. Eventually he gave up on boxing and his jungles were moved from Africa to South America.
