Behind the scenes
The eliminations of the Rebel Four mimic the superpowers held by their comic book counterparts, the Fantastic Four.
This story may have been inspired by the similarities that have been noted between Darth Vader and Fantastic Four supervillain Doctor Doom.
The name of the planet Vatleria is an anagram of Doctor Doom's fictional home country, Latveria.
