Golden Age History

When Tarka murdered his rival in love, he committed the first felony on Mars in 50 years. The Martian government branded his arm and sentenced him to exile. Together with his fellow criminal Zira, they were sent to Earth to rid it of crime. If they failed, then they would be destroyed--and so would Earth. Tarka took on the identity of Alan Wheeler, an FBI agent, with Zira as his secretary. They battled enemies such as the Black Hoods using futuristic weapons and their "disc-craft." Sometimes they were called upon by Mars to battle interstellar criminals as well, such as the Uralian Pirates.
