Golden Age Origin

Samar, as a child, was adopted and raised in the jungle by a nomadic tribe in India (though, at times, the comic treated it as if it were Africa). Samar dealt with jungle foes such as Mona, Queen of the Apes, Cavemen, the Panther Men, the Bat-Men, and the Hyena-Men. Samar also dealt with two different Amazon tribes the Amazons of Nesbo and Lazana's Amazons.

His allies included archaeologist Ford Cawthorne and a giant ape from the Valley of Giants.
