DAREDEVIL (1964) (#1-380) (MAN WITHOUT FEAR) (MARVEL) #13 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Daredevil #13
Ka-Zar origin issue! "The Secret of Ka-Zar's Origin!" is written by Stan Lee with layouts by Jack Kirby and pencils by John Romita. Bereft of his super senses, alone in the Savage Land, with the insidious Plunderer on his trail, Daredevil has had better days. In a dank cave, the Man Without Fear lies unconscious while the ape man Maa-Gor approaches with curiosity and malice. Effectively blind, DD lashes out as best he can to defend himself against the brute while Ka-Zar and Zabu, the sabertooth tiger, fight a giant carnivorous plant for the Ju-Ju berries which may restore Daredevil's powers.

Barely is one victory won, however, when evil again rears its head. The Plunderer and his motley pirate crew re-capture Daredevil, driving off Maa-Gor in the bargain. With DD as their hostage, the villains trick Ka-Zar into a trap and cage him like a beast. Back at Plunder Castle in merry old England, the Plunderer reveals why he and the Jungle Lord share a common bond. They are brothers, whose father discovered the wondrous metal Vibranium while exploring. Realizing its vast potential as a weapon, the elder Plunder locked it beneath the castle giving each of his two boys one half of the key to safeguard its power. Now years later, the Plunderer has both halves and his brother imprisoned. With ultimate power within his grasp, the Plunderer casts Daredevil into Ka-Zar's cage. Can even DD survive the onslaught of a Jungle Lord enraged?
