Quote1 Earthman is still in the process of becoming man! I have become that man... Ultimate Man!

...The brain I have is now a million years ahead of yours! The problems that scientist have worked on for generations I can solve in mere moments! I will watch over you and provide for you as a guardian over helpless charges! But hear me, o' world! I must be obeyed! Do not incur my wrath!
