Episode #4 - The Red Ghost
· This episode is only 10 minutes long, and is often paired with "Red".
Review:A more Cold War-type setting for this episode, as the Red Ghost (Kragoff) competes with the Fantastic Four to reach the Moon first and win the space race (that detail certainly dates this episode!). Having Red Ghost and his apes gain powers the same way as the FF is a clever idea, as is having all their powers different and unique compared to the FF's powers.
There's a pretty unforgivable shortcut when everyone leaves their respective spaceships into an atmosphere on the Moon! Of course, it could only have been in the Moon's mysterious blue city, but this isn't made clear.
Once again Sue falls into a stereotype, as she alone is held captive by the Red Ghost, but at least she's portrayed as being resourceful enough to escape this time. As with "Red", the episode's short running time is to its detriment, with obvious questions such as where did the blue city on the Moon come from not even being asked.
