We knew it. It was just a matter of time before his thin veil started to fall and Musk's grand master plan would be revealed to us all. He wants to blow up Mars.
Sure, you might argue that actually he wants to drop thermonuclear warheads on the planet's poles so he can essentially terraform it into being habitable, in fact that might be the excuse he's giving us, but we're no fools.
You only have to look at this creation to know that Musk is up to no good. No genuinely good person could come up with something as evil-looking as this:
Speaking to Stephen Colbert the billionaire genius even refused to answer when asked if he was either a superhero or a supervillain, instead laughing and saying that he just wants to do good. A likely story.
Annoyingly, as a supervillain Elon Musk's cover is pretty comprehensive. Not only is he pioneering the electric car industry but he's also working on the future of space travel and has even developed an incredible high-speed transit link, the plans of which he's simply handed over to the world.
Add to that the fact that while bonkers, the plan to warm up the Martian surface is actually a sound one. By melting the ice caps at the poles you'd essentially be speeding up global warming which in turn would create a thicker atmosphere.
