Star Trek: A piece of the action(1968)
Fantastic four #91,92,93 (1969)
1920's gangsters, alien captive gladiators, the Crew of the Enterprise and the Fantastic Four to the rescue. The two episodes of Star Trek broadcast the previous year clearly influenced the team of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby to create the 3 part story presented in issues 91,92 & 93. Sycronicity or imitation? Reed Richards as Kirk the gangster and The Thing as Kirk the gladiator.Two genres inter-connected, three sets of stories to enjoy.
