Re: Fantastic Four inspiration - Angry Red Planet?

This has been a great discussion. Redfern, it was the situation, the rather facile approach to a space mission, and the specific character types of the four astronauts that really resonated for me when watching this movie. Fr'instance, I about fell out of my chair when the ship lands on mars and the stocky pilot says, "Well, howzabout we go out and claim it in the name of Brooklyn?"
The hokey monsters they encountered were right out of the cover of FF#1, for that matter.

"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
