53 YEARS AGO TODAY

The transporter/teleporter device providing the dramatic entrance of THOR #135's villain was NOT a Star Trek influence. The first episode was broadcast less than a month before so this issue would already be on the way to the printers when Kirby first watched the show in his home studio.
It IS possible that the High Evolutionary's transporter and Star Trek's teleporter were inspired by the first episode of the OUTER LIMITS from two years earlier. A similar device is reponsible for bringing the titular "Galaxy Being" to Earth.
