"I guess I'm just an old mad scientist at bottom. Give me an underground laboratory, half a dozen atom-smashers, and a beautiful girl in a diaphanous veil waiting to be turned into a chimpanzee, and I care not who writes the nation's laws."
— S.J. Perelman (1904-1979) "Captain Future, Block That Kick!," The New Yorker (January 20, 1940)
