My Bad

Post by PhineasQP » Tue May 28, 2013 12:24 am

As Earth's most powerful superhero, I've made it my mission to valiantly protect and serve all mankind. But yesterday I failed to save the life of my true love, reporter Meredith Maxwell, and I kinda lost it. Overcome with grief, I attempted to turn back time by repeatedly circling the Earth at faster-than-light speeds.

It didn't work, obviously. But it did scramble weather patterns, scattered the ozone layer and even affected Earth's axis and orbit. Earthquakes. Floods. Freezing temperatures. The fifteen percent of humanity still alive won't be tomorrow.

Oops.

Maybe I can find another planet to protect.

Nice. I was always annoyed by that little plot device in the movie.

I always knew global warming was a bunch of hooey.

Damn you Stupendous Man.
