I'm sure I'm not the first person to whine about this, but, on this matter, I think there can be no objection too loud.
This is NOT G-Force:
One of Tatsunoko's finest, Gatchaman was a 1972 television anime that was adapted for American audiences in 1978 as Battle of the Planets. For many American children of the time, this fondly remembered series was their introduction to anime. In 1986, the same material was then adapted into English a second time as the lesser-known G-Force.
Battle of the Planets was well before my time, and I only ever saw a handful of G-Force episodes, which I did not enjoy. But I did always find the costumes to be some of the coolest and most original in any cartoon or comic. Seeing some more recent Alex Ross interpretations, I was amazed at how well the designs had aged, how well-suited they seemed to Ross's realistic style, which has often made the spandex-wearing DC and Marvel superheroes look sad and ridiculous.
I don't know where Disney gets off trying to take over a title that was already attached these last twenty-three years to an established and well-liked property. But this isn't about Disney stealing the hardly protectable least known, least necessary of Gatchaman's three names. It's about that first time I had to hear some marketing hype about some mysterious "G-Force" trailer, leading me to excitedly picture a new theatrical Gatchaman production, only to find myself subjected to lame jokes about CG gerbils defecating on live-action humans. Unforgivable.
