STAR JAWS: “Attack of The Lawyers”

Welcome to Part Four of STAR JAWS

“The Story” so far…

Is not only too complicated to explain but also totally unbelievable, it is probably better if you go back a couple of blog postings and start from the beginning…

To just quickly recap, Marvel Boy (The Atlas comics 1950s version), Spidey, Paul the Gorilla (from The Electric Company) and Sam the Sesame Street Robot have just taken off in Marvel Boys space craft escaping from (presumably) Hollywood, following behind in hot pursuit are a whole bunch of Dr Dooms Doombots…




Well strike me down with a lucasfilm law suit if all of these space ships now look very very familiar indeed, in the middle we have Marvel Boys Space ship… (maybe we can call it “The Antediluvian Peregrine”?) being chased by 3 flying wedges of cheese (or maybe pie) you tell me, I didn’t say anything about either stars or destroyers, no sir not me

And don’t ask what Frank Sinatra thinks of using the tile of one his more famous songs to title this chapter either!






While we are in the middle of this exciting chase, Paul the gorilla and Sam the Sesame Street Robot find the time to play a game of tic-tac-toe, presumably as a nod to the 3-d chess game featuring Chewbecca versus R2-D2 in some movie or another, I guess that mean that Sam should let the gorilla win

Just as it looks like Marvel boys space ship might get blasted to pieces, he cranks up the speed - all the way to fastest…and they woosh away

I don’t know about you but that reminds of the “ludicrous speed” bit of Space Balls…







Next we have Dr Doom, who appears to be citing the name of a movie featuring Sidney Poitier…

Meanwhile the “ludicrous speed” scene continues as Marvel Boy is unable to slow down before they get swallowed up by the Star Jaw

presumably this was what Dr Doom meant, that they are now literally dinner…




Now we are in the landing bay sequence of that very familiar lucasfilm movie, with Doombots searching Marvel boys space ship

Wherin not only does everyone hide in plain sight in the cockpit, but also Paul and Sam have found time to have another game of tic-tac-toe, I mean really?

But Paul must have lost as he grabs out to the Doombots as Marvel boy and Spidey hit them from behind, nice way of evening the odds there




Next thing we know 2 Doombots are hold Paul and Sam captive and Dr Doom orders them to be locked up

Of course Spidey and Marvel Boy have assumed the identities of the Doombots, don’t even ask how that works, it would have taken ages to take out of that circuitry and even then would the Doombot armour have fit Spidey and Marvel Boy anyway?

Paul “breaks free” and attacks some Doombots just after the arrive in the prison cell area…




But instead of a blast out its a free for all punch out, Spidey gets the keys…

A Doombot bursts into Moondragon’s cell, but it’s Marvel boy, who I guess was not too short to be a Doombot after all, and they all escape (having ditched the Doombot armour off panel) from (finally) some laser firing Doombots




Spidey decides to be all heroic and hold off the Doombots using his web, luckily enough the Doombots are even worse shots than a Stormtrooper

While Spidey fights for his life, Sam, Paul, moon dragon and Marvel boy, stand on a slow moving travelator that leads them into Marvel Boys space ship, at least that is what it looks like




Having webbed up all the Doombots, Spidey makes a run for Marvel Boys Spaceship only to be met by DR DOOM, holding a LASER SWORD - or something along those lines….

CONCLUDED NEXT WEEK: - As we find out that DOOM Mean Business…
