When the Cotati are sent to the moon by the Skrulls to compete with the Kree, as revealed in Avengers #133, I’m wondering if they didn’t so much create the wonderful jungle but rather resurrected the Moon’s past life – which I’d suggest was created from a fragment of the Earth.
I’d then suggest that this “environment” was where Devil Dinosaur and his inseparable ape-pal, Moon-Boy frolicked, and was in fact not a version of Earth in a parallel Earth.
The name Moon-Boy makes much more sense if that’s where he actually lived!
As for what happened to this wonderful jungle since all signs of it no longer remain on the lunar surface, whereas ruins of the city the Kree built still exist on the Blue Area of the Moon.
I’d suggest that some other aliens, perhaps controlled by the Cotati (?the Nuwali?) transport this jungle to a hidden place in Antarctica, to preserve it from destruction, where it becomes the Savage Land.
I’d further suggest that the aliens Devil Dinosaur and Moon-Boy encountered in Kirby’s original series were also the Kree, pissed that they had lost the competition!
