Summary: Emperor Ming of planet Mongo is bored, and the only thing that seems to appease his ennui is to slowly destroy that celestial trifle known as Earth-- bombarding his new plaything with hailstorms and earthquakes. While Earth’s inhabitants scramble to understand what is happening to their planet, Dr. Hans Zarkov figures out the space coordinates of the origin of attack and commandeers a rocket. But before take-off, he inadvertently kidnaps beautiful New York reporter, Dale Arden, and famed football player, Flash Gordon. Will these mere Earthlings be able to stop the wrath of Emperor Ming? Maybe not, but Flash Gordon is no mere Earthling; he’s a New York Jet.
