Supervillans are often misunderstood people who really want to make a difference and change the world (see Tony Abbot – lol jks).

Now, one of the world’s most prolific entrepreneurs, Elon Musk has been accused of being a supervillain for his plan to nuke Mars in order to make it hospitable by Stephen Colbert. The man behind Tesla Motors, SpaceX, SolarCity, PayPal and Hyperloop was pressed by Colbert on his growing monopoly over different aspects of the world.

In the hilarious clip (below), Musk comes across as the new Lex Luthor – a wealthy scientist, business man and philanthropist trying to take over the world. When questioned by Colbert on how he can do such good things but be a billionaire at the same time, Musk’s priceless response is “I’m trying to really useful things“…

Finally, after admitting that the “fast way” to heat Mars up in order to make it liveable for humans, is to drop thermal nuclear weapons over the poles, Colbert draws the conclusion that Musk must be a Super villain! At least if he takes us over, we have a handsome and charming man to lead the free world.

Don’t blame me, I voted for Kodos.
