Scientist Abbott Reeves is conducting time-travel experiments in the Mexican jungle. Reeves orders his assistant Dr Takada to decommission the half-human, half-cyborg Mandroid when Mandroid starts having flashbacks to his life as a human. Instead Takada helps Mandroid escape and tells him to seek out robotics expert Nora Hunter. Nora is surprised to find that Reeves, thought killed, is alive and that he has stolen her robotic designs to build Mandroid. She immediately sets forth on an expedition into the Mexican jungle, joined by Mandroid, the wily boatman Harry Fontana and Takada’s ninja son who has come to find his father. Fighting their way past Neanderthals brought back via Reeves’s experiments and river pirates, they eventually discover Reeves’s plan to go back in time and make himself the Emperor of Rome.
