NOTES

Here goes our retcon for the previously-mentioned contradiction.

The satellite from our era just provided the idea, the inspiration.
Atlanteans turned it into an actual weapon, using both magic and science.
Magic played a key role in the Atlantean civilization, because Ley Lines were at full strength and humans understood mystical forces at a higher level that our society does.
(Ley Lines were drained by the apocalypse events, by the way).

The 1980 Nintendo lookalike features the classical "Space Invaders" game, as a tribute to Fantasmi a Manhattan (Martin Mystère nn. 64-65).

As revealed in Il segreto delle Ombre Diafane (Martin Mystère Gigante n.8), some aliens knwon as "Brothers From the Pleiades" came to Earth looking for "Sandarta" (Anti-Matter).
Isemori, one of the rulers of Mu, tried to trade with them but she was unable to deliver the Anti-Matter.
Enraged, the "Brothers From the Pleiades" left Earth, but only after activating the End-of-the-World Satellite that destroyed Atlantis and Mu.

Basically, that official issue stated that Atlantis and Mu didn't self-destroy because of their reckless behavior and errors: in fact, it was some touchy aliens that caused the apocalypse, as a petty revenge.
This retcon nullified the "cautionary tale" teaching of the previous version of the event.

Only one question was left: those aliens could travel through galaxies. Couldn't they just look for anti-matter somewhere else in the universe? It's not like Anti-Matter can be created only on Earth, by a civilization (Mu) which was clearly less developed than the Brothers' one!
Our comic doesn't answer this question, but we suspect that the "Sandarta" was more than just Anti-Matter. It probably featured mystical properties.
