In Flash’s origin, he was as a polo player who got whisked away to the planet Mongo alongside Dale Arden and Hans Zarkov. While there, the heroic trio battled Mongo’s tyrannical ruler, Ming the Merciless. "Flash Gordon" went on to headline radio and film serials, television programs (both live-action and animated), and comic books. Sam Jones starred as "Flash Gordon" in the feature film directed by Mike Hodges in 1980. Queen famously performed the songs for the film’s soundtrack.
