Synopsis for Superman: "The Super-Gorilla from Krypton"
In Africa, a visiting Jimmy Olsen is attacked by a super-gorilla. Jimmy summons Superman with his Signal Watch. Superman discover a space capsule and that this gorilla is from Krypton, and Jimmy names the creature as King Krypton. Fight after fight, seems as the Man of Steel can't handle the Gorilla of Steel, as an ordinary Terran man can't handle a ordinary gorilla without external ways. In the jungles, Jimmy discover an Coliseum replica, and descendents of the Ancient Romans, now reverted to primitive tribesmen. Their king force Superman and King Krypton to fight between themselves. The fight causes the ground to break, revealing kryptonite under the soil. The Super-Gorilla shields the radiation with his own body, and slowly he becomes human! Actually he was a Kryptonian scientist devolved into a gorilla by a defective evolution device and shot into space in a capsule by his partner. King Krypton dies as a human.
