"Gadgetman and Gimmick-Kid" was a strip that ran in Lion, making its debut in the 4 May 1968 issue and lasting until the following October.

Billed as "a team of gadget-masters who used their unique gadget-wizardry to combat super-crime and ultra-villainy", the protagonists were costumed superheroes armed with laser guns and the ability to grow to enormous size. Based in a hollowed-out iceberg, the heroes battled such enemies as the Space Armada, King Zombie, Mad Mummy and a giant waterskiing robot called the Taunting Titan.

As this description suggests, the strip was grounded very much in the wackiness that went on in American superhero comics of the contemporaraneous silver age.
