Character history Edit
We first meet him in the film series where he is working as a College professor who, along with his colleague and friend Harry Block, investigate the genus, taking a sample of strange blue liquid that oozes from it.Ira discovers that it harbors extraterrestrial single-celled nitrogen-based organisms multiplying exponentially, condensing millions of years of evolution within minutes.
The next day, they take the science class to survey the meteor site and find it already surrounded by evolved oxygen-converting fungi and alien flatworms, later discovering the cells and organisms reproduce rapidly through mitosis.
The animated series, Alienators: Evolution Continues (Evolution: the Animated Series in the UK), starts a couple of months after the events of the 2001 comedy sci-fi, film and opens with Ira and Harry watching a news report on final scene of the film.
