Red Martians. The Red Martians were created by the Russian creators Nikolai Khodataev and Zenon Komissarenko and appeared in the animated cartoon Mezhplanetnaya Revolyutsiya (1924).

The Red Martians are a group of Martians who have successfully embraced communism and overthrown their capitalist oppressors in this parody of Aelita (see Los). When a group of capitalist and national socialist “ghouls,” who (literally) drink the blood of the workers, arrive on Mars, the Martians treat the capitalists appropriately.
