Hmm, let me think through my plan one more time in my head before shooting the one man who can stop me.
Step one: assassinate the pope, people will know I'm serious then.
Step two: Seize control of the Pyramids of Giza, install the solar weapon of mass destruction my fearsome scientists tell me is nearly done.
Step three: Unleash my Armies of Destruction, bring about the Apocalypse, retire to the Obsidian Citadel, fuck a beautiful blonde, smoke a Cuban cigar.
Yeah, this will work. Hmm. Should I explain this to the one man who can stop me exactly how I'm going to do this before I pull the trigger?
