Kull survives until the 20th century in suspended animation, then awakens and repeatedly threatens the human-dominated modern world with his immense strength and bizarre technology.

NOTE: The caveman-like King Kull of DC Comics should NOT be confused with the Conan-like King Kull (a.k.a. "Kull the Conqueror") first written about by Robert E. Howard and later depicted in Marvel comics. Despite the similarity in their names, they are not the same character and there is no connection between them.
