Ultraman Zero vs Green Lantern

Bleeding Cool points out how the trailers for Ultraman Zero and Green Lantern look similar ... because they are both inspired by E. E. Doc Smith’s Lensman series, a space opera about a galactic police force. The six novels in the series were serialized in science fiction magazines in the 1930s and 1940s. In the 1950s, Smith revised them into the six-volume set of novels we have today.
