On a visit to 1932 George and Neal met with Alex Raymond and related some of this Saga. Alex was inspired and two years later created Flash Gordon, a fairly accurate retelling of some of our adventures. Though the personalities are different, Raymond honored George and Neal by using their likenesses as the characters Ming the Merciless and Dr. Hans Zarkov respectively. In an unusual turn of events, George went on to portray Ming the Merciless in the 1934 serials, 1970s television show, the 2026 movie trilogy, the 2028 movie series reboot, and the 2034 100th anniversary live action extravaganza world tour.

 

George the Merciless - Ming really was one good looking dude.  Totally psychotic, but he made psychotic look good.
