How did we not know about this?

auntpetunia.com/index.html

Seriously, Burgess Meredith as the Mole Man? Paul Henreid as Doctor Doom? James Arness as Annihilus?

Is this real?

Yeah, I know, but I'm just picturing Paul Henreid with a chance to chew up the scenery as Dr. Doom. 

Plus, I love the "controversies" over story elements. 

***le sigh***

Superheroes belong on TV, and the Fantastic Four would work perfectly!

I'm working on finding that alternate universe where this was an actual series. I wonder if it's still considered bootlegging, if the copyright is owned in a parallel time-line?

Uhmmm....that alternate world is beyond their reach to get us, so no.

Well-conceived fake, but man, some of the casting choices would have been perfect, at the time. I want to believe that, in an alternate timeline, this series actually happened and was a hit for at least three seasons.

It's about as real as the 1950's Avengers trailer on youtube. What a crossover that would have been!

I haven't a clue if this was real or not. Certainly many of the actors would have played the roles in that time period but it's completely unknown to me. The photos, except Johnny Storm in the front page main photo, look authentic. That's the only one, and the only character in that one, where it's obvious it is photoshopped. Not well done either. It would be an interesting piece of film history if it was filmed.

One strong fact against it, during that time period, series were given one full season to prove themselves. Eleven episodes in the can do not a season make.

As a friend of mine pointed out - Ernest Borgnine woulda also made a good Thing.  He certainly had the voice for it.
