* Why does the Martian's weapon leave clothing intact? Its an highly-focused ''enhanced radiation weapon'' similar to a neutron bomb, which is designed to wipe out enemies soldiers but leave their infrastructure relatively intact. This is why it dessicates humans into ash but less of an effect on clothing (and armour). Similarly, it also demonstrates similarlities to a neutron bomb's having some concussive force, in the way that it impacts objects. It isn't a "heat ray" at all, as throughout the films, we never see it ''ignite'' objects, the only fires seen are clearly caused by explosions from other sources.

* Are we suppose to assume the aliens have no doctors or any kind of treatment? I know its in the original novel that germs kill them, but H.G. Wells wrote it at a time when antibiotics let alone effective treatments and isolation were not known. Medical science was not really advanced at the time so Wells could not assume a future were invading armies were free of this risk. An invading army from space would have access to stuff we cannot yet conceive yet they fail to take basic precautions in an alien environment for them.
** Multiple sources from the musical adaptation of the original novel state that the aliens had wiped out any form of disease on their planet, and thus eliminated the need for medical science (at least the kind that treated infections or diseases). So they just didn't think to prepare, or their immunity was ''that'' low after centuries of not facing infections at all that they were all terminal before they could get anyone to research a cure.
** The book also mentions that the aliens wiped out all disease and germs on Mars, leaving them vulnerable to earth's microbes. Further, they feed by injecting human blood directly into their veins, which would be a major infection source if anything (blood transfusion was not well understood back then).

* In the modern retelling of ''Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds'', it is rumored that a few tripods were destroyed in Osaka Japan. We later see Tom Cruise sucessfully take down a tripod by allowing it to capture him, then hucking grenades inside of it. Kind of makes sense that the culture who invented suicide bombing would readily come up with this means of attack. -pcw27
