    Kick Butt Villains Volume IV

    Ming the Merciless!!! He has been seen in several incarnations, but in each, Flash Gordon has dealt with him as only Flash can... Naturally, Ming is the epitamy of evil Emperors. Nasty, vile, power hungry, mad and black-hearted.

    Charles Middleton as Ming in 1936

    The supreme Emperor of the planet Mongo, Ming the Merciless, controls through fear and terror. He amuses himself by destroying other planets in the solar system. Back home, he uses his secret police force to find those who oppose him and destroys anyone in his way.

    Max von Sydow as Ming in 1980

    When Flash and his girl Dale Arden are kidnapped by a mad scientist and forced to go to Mongo, Ming captures them, and executes Flash. Ming's daughter revives him for revenge against him, and with the aid of several species, Flash sets out to save Dale whom Ming wants for his own. In order to find Flash, Ming allows the torture of his own daughter, and eventually, Flash leads the Hawkmen of Mongo to battle and destroys Ming and his plans.

    Of course, Ming's ring lives on, and perhaps one day, he will return to wreak evil havoc on unsuspecting planets again!

    Coming up next time...
