Wait... is that the actual origin of the Savage Land? I just always took for granted that there was a tropical area of the Antarctic full of dinosaurs because, y'know, comics.

That's a good question.

I love how we all just ACCEPT this weird ass tropical dino land in the Antarctic cause- y'know - why not?

It is, yes! It was first revealed in Ka-Zar the Savage vol.01:no.34 (October 1984), and elaborated on in Fantastic Four vol.01:no.316 (July 1988). The aliens were the Nuwali, though they were working on behalf of The Beyonders.

The weirdest part is that the Beyonders were paying the Nuwali in gold. Why a civilization hundreds of millions of years old and capable of building a dino land need a steady supply of gold - your guess is as good as mine.

It's soft, crunchy and goes great with Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters?

It helps pay for treatment after taking a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.

(You'd be amazed how difficult using coinage is after drinking one of them, whereas handling a lump of a heavy metal is comparatively trivial.)

Well it makes about as much sense as the real world belief that aliens came here the mutilate livestock and probe rednecks.

They're suckers for highly electroconductive metal.

That actually makes perfect sense to me. The Beyonder from the first two Secret Wars is basically a child*. Of course the Beyonders would want a place to keep their dinosaurs.

*The original SW is literally an excuse to take some action figures and bang them together.
