Mara Rice was the daughter of famous botanist Professor Rice. During their expedition into the Belgian Congo to collect rare plant samples, they would have the unfortunate luck of unknowingly hiring international criminal Red Skelton who would attempt to extort them out of money, and force Mara to marry him in exchange for safe passage back home. When Mara's father would refuse, Red would shoot him dead. Deciding that he needed all his supplies to get out of the jungle alive, Red would attempt to kill Mara, but she would be rescued by Ka-Zar who would cut Red's throat. Despite Mara wanting to abandon civilization and live with Ka-Zar, the jungle man would bring her to a nearby caravan so that she could be taken home.
