Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

(COMIC: Party Animals)

  • While partially obscured by a dialogue balloon, a figure resembling Captain Scarlet is seen sitting with Hulk in the comic story Party Animals. This is further indicated by his uniform being red in the colourised reprint of the story in TIDH 12.
  • The "About the Authors" section of Short Trips: Christmas Around the World refers to writer William Potter as "putting words into the mouths of", among others, Captain Scarlet. This is in reference to New Captain Scarlet, a magazine published by GE Fabbri between October 2005 and February 2006.
  • The Indestructible Man has a number of pastiche versions of Gerry Anderson characters such as Scarlet. The title character, Captain Grant Matthews (Scarlet), was reconstructed by the Myloki (Mysterons) so that he couldn't die. As a member of the organisation PRISM (Spectrum), the colour-coded officer's uniform assigned to him was scarlet. The war with the Myloki is started by Captain Karl Taylor (Captain Black) who is recreated as a Myloki agent.
