He is the man with the power to change things.......
The War of the Worldsis the famous H.G. Wells Science fiction story of aliens from Mars invading earth. An explosion on Mars is followed by a cylinder landing on Horsell Common. When the cylinder opens tentacled creatures emerge and enormous tripod machines terrify all in their path. More cylinders land across the English countryside and the Martians from within their tripods armed with Heat Rays and chemical weaponry, heedlessly attack people and property leaving behind a trail of confusion, trauma and mass destruction. Is humanity doomed?......It's the stuff that movie blockbusters are made from. Legendary H.G. Wells.
