"Hoping to find a means of avenging himself upon a society that had taxed him into becoming homeless, the Mandarin explored the forbidden 'Valley of Spirits', where no one had dared to set foot for centuries.
"There he found the remains, in a crashed starship, of 'Axonn-Karr', a techno-advanced reptilian alien from the planet 'Maklu IV', who had come to Earth centuries ago. salvaging what he could from Axonn-Karr and the craft, he studied and mastered 'Makluan' science.
