Space Force Saturdays SPACE SQUADRON "Menace of the Martians"

What happens when a strip ignores it's own backstory...
...and changes an alien race's entire history...for no reason at all?
This never-reprinted story from Atlas' Space Squadron #4 (1951) contradicted the Space Squadron #1 tale that introduced Max in several ways!
Notably, that Martians, who were as scientifically and intellectually-advanced as Earthers (though with extremely-short tempers), are now simply savage beings who wish to slay anything living that's not them!
There's no reason I can think of, except that it's likely the anonymous writer of this particular tale was new and unfamiliar with the series!
