Pure Fiction But We Wish It Was Real: I is for Interdites

Interdites are a humanoid race with blue skin, and first seen in Warlock #15 (November 1974). They have the power of precognition and come from the planet Interdis. Their planet is the seventh from the sun in the Tartaru star system in the Milky Way galaxy. After the Badoon race demolishes their planet surviving Interdites turned to mysticism living like hermits scattered across the galaxy.

It seems odd that we have a planet of precogs who don’t see their planet on the brink of an invasion until it’s too late. You would think they’d have the ability to prevent such a thing.

Hmm…not sure about that one Marvel. 

The ability to see the future is something that humans have craved for centuries. However, we still struggle to predict the weather. Tthrough much our media we’ve learned the dangers of knowing too much about the future. The consequences of knowing our own future can be deadly. 

Both Back to the Future and Timeless address this issue in it’s own way. You could accidently erase yourself from time. You could end up making a change that removes someone else from existance, or worse brings them back. In fact, it’s hard to find a good time travel story where they don’t make more problems for themselves in the end.

Either way time travel is a hard thing to explain and get right in science fiction. The Doctor seems to be doing okay as a timelord but not every story has a satisfying plot. I wouldn’t want that life.

But if you could travel in time would you? Why?

  1. I would totally time travel – I have a list! The Titanic, the Great Library of Alexandria, meet Oscar Wilde, Nikola Tesla, Ada Lovelace, Mary Shelley… There’s so much history we’ll never get to see!

    1. I was hoping my history lovers would make it to this post! Awesome list.

  2. Yep, would love to! I love Melanie’s list, and I will add a little further, dinosaurs, and maybe Big Bang?
