Did Filmation ever have a Godzilla deal?
I ask, because I just watched the animated Star Trek episode "Yesteryear", and was surprised to hear that the monster in the Vulcan desert sounded exactly like Godzilla. Not "close." Exactly. As in, somebody flat out swiped the audio clip. Unless, you know, Filmation had the rights somehow.
I'm inclined to think there must be a legit explanation. The Big G was popular enough in the early '70's for me to see Megalon and Smog Monster on the big screen in my hometown. So it's not like nobody would have noticed.
Perhaps the studio used the sound library of the party that did the English language versions of the films.
A Godzilla cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera appeared in 1978-79.
A forgotten DC feature: "Spaceman at Work".
Apparently the script for the lead story in Adventure Comics #441, starring Aquaman, was rewritten by David Michelinie after the story had been completed. There's a post about this at a Jim Aparo blog here. Link via the GCD.
This post displaced the thread DC announces two new Justice League titles from the homepage.
Krypton can't have had higher gravity than Jupiter. If Superman's super-strength is due to Krypton's gravity, doesn't it follow that he should have no super-strength on Jupiter?
(Silver and Bronze Age comics were inconsistent about this. Krypton and Kandor had super-gravity, but Superman was commonly depicted as losing his strength along with his other powers under red sunlight. In the first Lexor story he lacked super-strength on Lexor because of its gravity and his other powers because of its sun [Luthor had to wear gravity shoes], and in the Wolfman/Kane new Brainiac story he retained his strength after being red sun-zapped. Sometimes Earthmen needed gravity shoes or boots to enter Kandor and sometimes they didn't. I think Larry Niven's Superman piece proposed Krypton was really a dead star.)
