As the title suggests, this is the story of Superman being raised by a pack of Wolves in the tropical Jungle. The mother wolf Mírír names him Kílíl and raises him as one of her own. The day comes when Kílíl has to fight Khan, the tiger who reigns supreme over the jungle. Thus, he assumes leadership over the jungle until the arrival of man.
The exploratory crew of Richard Burton, Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor find themselves in the jungles of India capturing, hunting, and exploring Kílílís home. The two groups meet in a clash ended by Kílíl being calmed by Lois. Thus their relationship grows until it reaches romantic proportions. In the background is Lex Luthor whose proposal is rejected by Lois. That is when he orders the deaths of the members of the party not loyal to him, takes Kílíl captive using a mysterious green ďstar gemĒ he discovered in Africa.
With Kílíl and many of his animal companions captured, Lex travels back to London where they are placed on exhibit. On the night where the Queen of England was suppose to appear as a special guest of the exhibit, Luthor plots to have Kílíl assassinated the Queen. However, plot backfires as Kílíl seeks revenge on Luthor, sets his animals free, and rescues Lois. For his efforts, he is knighted by the Queen and lives out his days in England.
