Football quarterback Flash Gordon (pictured left) must overcome the evil mechanizations of the bored Ming the Merciless (Max Von Sydow, right) who manipulates earth’s weather to bring about the annihilation of the blue and green planet. Flash gets help from the Wingmen to save the planet–“WE ONLY HAVE TWENTY FOUR HOURS TO SAVE THE EARTH!” Flash Gordon is stimulus for thought–Theological speculation: Does God intend to save the planet? If so, how?
