Nope, you need to have Snow leopard installed first, since you need to download Mountain Lion from the app store and its min requirement is Snow leopard 10.6

If you have another Mac with Snow Leopard or greater you can create a bootable USB drive with the installer on it, but you need to first download Mountain Lion from Apple on a Mac with Snow leopard or Lion installed
