      A gentleman adventurer, explorer, and inventor, Langdon St. Ives, and his team of able assistants are desperately trying to stop the mad scheme of the evil Doctor Ignacio Narbando, who is threatening to move the Earth's orbit into the path of an oncoming comet unless his demands are met. More than just for the sake of the world, though, St. Ives also seeks to avenge the death of his wife at the hands of Narbando. Meanwhile, the eminent British scientist Lord Kelvin has developed a machine that will thwart the two rivals' plans and change the destiny of the whole planet.
