Films: Phase IV (1974)

Alias: None

Type: Mutant

Location: Desert

Height/Weight: That of average ants.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil

Summary: Insects have ruled the world for millions of years. Even now, they outnumber every single other species. Only now do some recognize the scope of it all.

History: Something in the cosmos has boosted the intelligence of some ants in Arizona. They now operate on a level in which they build massive structures and can communicate with humans. But are they friend or foe? No one can be sure.

Notable Kills: One thinks they are evil. He is immediately buried in the ground by the ants after walking into a pitfall trap.

Final Fate: It is soon revealed that the ants don't plan on destroying humanity, but rather mold it into something agreeable to them. Only time will tell what exactly that means for us...

Powers/Abilities: Immune to toxins, great intelligence.

Weakness: Anything controversial.

Scariness Factor: 4-These ants take out enemies by trapping them, can infect computer systems by just crawling into them, and overall have a seemingly low stance on humans. Not a good combination.

Trivia: -Most ant footage was taken from the pseudo-documentary, "The Hellstrom Chronicle", which basically said that insects will outlive us in the future.

-The original ending was going to be a psychedelic acid trip of a climax meant to show the world under ant rule, but it was cut out.

Better get the lead out. They move fast.

The Red Lantern Core welcomes you, Auntie Ant.

"See how you like being at the mercy of my feet!"
Alien Ant Farm was the first to die out when these creatures had their day.

Happy ending? I guess?
