In film Edit

In the 1957 film 20 Million Miles to Earth, the Venusian space monster known as Ymir was brought back to the planet where he grew to a prodigious size and began rampaging throughout Rome. Tearing through the streets of the city, he engaged police and military and even had a wrestling match with an elephant. As soldiers tried to stop him, Ymir evaded them by diving into the Tiber River. He later emerged near the ruins of the Roman Coliseum. Ymir scaled the building, but a soldier fired a bazooka, which ultimately brought the monster down.

In comics Edit

In DC Comics continuity, a costumed lunatic calling himself Il Calamari began attacking the Tariff Conference. Ralph Dibny, the Elongated Man, learned of the attack on a newsreel and began packing his bags for Italy. Ralph meets with members of the Pan-European Economic Conference, and gets into another scuffle with Warp and Copperhead. Il Calamari joins the fight and together they nearly defeat the Elongated Man until the timely arrival of yet another super-powered individual - the Flash. He assisted Ralph in beating down Copperhead, Il Calamari and Warp. He explained that Ralph's wife, Sue Dibny called him from Modora and told him that Ralph might need some backup. [1][2]
