Just out of curiosity, what year did that series purportedly take place?

KAMANDI took place after "The Great Disaster", year unspecified, that was supposedly a great natural disaster that destroyed the world, rather than a nuclear war. Without a specified year, Kamandi's post-disaster world is "a few hundred years" in the future. Supposedly Kamandi's grandfather (in issue 1) could have been OMAC.

As for when the Great Disaster itself occurred, that was within a few decades of the 1970's, in the near future of that era. And with issue 35's story, "The Soyuz Survivor" it tells the tape-recorded story of two Russian/Soviet consmonauts aboard a Russian orbiting space ship. The Soyuz-X space ship has clear Soviet markings. In the recorded audio message that Kamandi listens to (from centuries earlier, recorded during the Great Disaster), the two Russians see explosions all over the world that appear to be nuclear war. But since Kirby says it was a great natural disaster, one assumes that when the natural disaster occurred, the nuclear-armed nations thought they were under nuclear attack and added a nuclear exchange to the already occurring disaster.
The importance being, if they were Soviet cosmonauts, KAMANDI's future already became anachronistic and impossible as of the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. But read them to be Russian cosmonauts, it still remains current and possible in our era or the near future.


I always thought it was cool that with Star Trek (original series) that their future was roughly 300 years ahead of the 1960's. And since over 50 years now have passed since the original series, that future is only 250 years away. If medical breakthroughs happen in our lifetime, such as ending and reversing the aging process, it's conceivable that either our generation or the one after us could possibly live to see the years Star Trek is set, "in roughly the 2260's". Or possibly the nearer future of characters like Zefram Cochrane (who in the "Metamorphosis" episode created the space warp engine, and again appeared in the Star Trek: First Contact movie, set in 2063 ).
And the Star trek: Enterprise series set about 100 years prior to the original series, in the 2100's, is a part of the Star Trek early future we might have a chance of seeing.

Interestingly enough, we're already about 25 years past TOS's "Eugenic Wars" in which Khan was ruler of approximately (IIRC) one-third of the planet before being banished into space. In the original timeline, Khan ruled in the early to mid-90s.

Yeah the "eugenics wars of the 1990's" in the "Space Seed" episode didn't come to pass, and have like the Soviet Union become obsolete future visions.

In the short story "Exile of the Aeons" by Arthur C. Clarke, he projects that India would surpass China and rule the world, and I thought when I read it that it kind of gelled with Khan in "Space Seed", even if India ruled the world in a few centuries, and not the 1990's as Khan's then-future envisioned.

India and China alone have about 40% of the world's population. And that's not even considering how many nationals of India and China live in foreign countries. Clearly China already has ambitions of empire, increasing their naval reach, and their economic dominion over Asia, Africa, South America, and even places like Greenland and the Bahamas.
