''Mars Attacks!'' was originally a trading card series from Topps published in the early sixties. Created by Wally Wood, this series depicted an AlienInvasion in the style of ECComics horror and science fiction stories at the time. The series was quickly discontinued due to MoralGuardians who were horrified by the series' violence. The series would later be continued by Topps in the form of new trading cards and a comic series. A movie soon followed.

%% ** Many of the characters are portrayed as stupid or sleazy, particularly Billy-Glen, his parents, Jerry, and Land.Land. This helps make their deaths part of the jokes.

* TheMillstone: The hippie that releases the dove, which sets off the Martians' BerserkButton and leads to the initial massacre in Nevada. Of course, they could've been planning all along to vaporize everyone there, regardless.

* JerkAss: Every single fucking Martian. And many humans, especially Danny [=DeVito's=] character, the President, and Barbara's husband (the last two played by JackNicholson). The president is perhaps simply clueless.

* LeeroyJenkins: When the Martians open fire in Nevada, Billy-Glenn blindly charges across half the field, grabs a gun from a dead soldier, and prepares to unleash hell on the alien invaders - but accidentally hits the magazine release instead.
