Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Bolton's voice style is not consistent in the episode. It's deep and husky for most of his time on Earth. It's much more nasal on Mars and during his final confrontation with Spiderman.

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode is somewhat unusual for seasons 2 and 3, having two (non-regular, non-credited) guest voices when episode budgets were quite small. Usually voice director Bernard Cowan or series lead Paul Soles would double up on some secondary voices to save money.

      Boomer is voiced in this episode by Chris Wiggins.

      The giant Viking Martian is played by Len Carlson.

    • The name of the giant Viking Martian in this story is given in the DVD subtitles as 'Bolton' (which is an interesting linguistic pun)

      However, the name spoken in the episode sounds more like 'Wotan', which is the Germanic name for Odin (Thor's father in Norse mythology).

    • The giant Martian dressed in Viking garb in this story looks vaguely similar to that of the Marvel Comics depicion of Thor. He even has a hammer similar to that of the comic book Thor.
