    There was supposed to be a small 4 issue crossover between the JLA and Avengers but at the last minute negotiations between DC and Marvel fell through. The writers decided to go ahead with the crossover anyway so they created analogs and told their story. Two issues of JLA and two of Avengers that read as one story.

    I think that might be two different incidents. The older stories with the analog characters was a wink wink nudge nudge thing between the writers and the fans who were reading both companies' books. The one that was supposed to be an official crossover were the negotiations fell through was the one we actually got by Busiak and Perez. The original plan was to have the crossover take place in continuity in the on-going JLA and Avengers titles that were being published at the time. They couldn't figure out how to make the legal rights work...say DC wanted to reprint that year's JL stories in a trade, they wouldn't be able to us the Marvel published chapters of the story, that sort of thing.

    No argument that Jack Kirby's Kamandi was influenced by Planet of the Apes. But not entirely, years earlier Kirby had done a story with human like animals.

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I'd never put Kamandi together with Planet of the Apes. Neat!

    And Hugh Harmon's MGM cartoon Peace On Earth predates both!

    I get the larger similarities, but doubt it was an influence.

    There are lots of similarities with these two movies.

    I don't think so either. Aesops 's fables is probably the prime influence.

    It was more obvious at the time, when the movie was still fresh with everybody.

    Harry Potter reminds me an awful lot of Timothy Hunter.

    A most excellent catch! Also notice how old Reed and Ben appear.
