Someone pointed out to me that “getting the indestructible machine to destroy itself” was straight out of The Incredibles. True enough. That being said:
- it’s still the classic, obvious (and most effective) solution to the problem
- similarly, Ozymandias‘s plan in Watchmen was the classic, obvious solution to his problem, but that didn’t make it any less cool!
- I love The Incredibles — if this page is a small tribute to that fantastic film, then I’m all for it!
Also: This solution is efficient . . . which is nice, because Space Kid pointed out the inefficiency of Conquest’s plan to destroy Terraopolis. Nice!
