One of the DC groups that may have influenced the Fantastic Four was the deep-six adventurers the Sea Devils (1960-67), made up of an alpha-male leader, his girlfriend, the girlfriend's brother and the leader's best buddy.

A quick shot of one of the more balls-to-the-walls moments in Yukito Kishiro's BATTLE ANGEL ALITA, forever rumored to be in "development hell."
