Flash, Dale, and Dr. Zarkov return from their former space adventures only to find that their enemy, Ming the Merciless of planet Mongo, has a new weapon: a deadly ray that crosses space to wreak havoc on earth. Earth's only hope is for our heroes to take off again and stop the ray at its source on Mars, where they (and a stowaway) must battle Ming's ally, Queen Azura, who turns her enemies into lumpish clay people.

It's such common knowledge that it hardly bears mentioning, but of course Mars's comparatively thin atmosphere lacks the oxygen necessary to support complex life as we know it, so the entire scenario of humans and Mongonians roaming around on the surface without space suits is purely fantastical, and indicative of the hypothetical nature of the planet's on screen counterpart.

The degree to which these episodes require of the viewer a super-human
suspension of belief makes them, I believe, beyond all criticism and
places them in a category that defies definition--"kitsch" and "camp"
do not begin to do this cinematic production justice. I do have one
criticism, however, of King Entertainment's editing of the DVD. They
should have left in the original breaks in the story line which
corresponded to the actual viewing experience of the original audiences
in the movie houses of the 30s & 40s and TV of the 60s & 70s: namely
those dramatic moments at the end of a chapter when Flash & company
appeared to be finished for certain. The beginning of the next sequel
revealed how they managed their astonishing, breath-taking escape from
the gaping jaws of death.
