Soon I Will Be Invincible
by Austin Grossman
Doctor Impossible â€“ evil genius, diabolical scientist, wannabe world dominator â€“ languishes in a federal detention facility. Heâ€™s lost his freedom, his girlfriend, and his hidden island fortress.
Over the years heâ€™s tried to take over the world in every way imaginable: doomsday devices of all varieties (nuclear, thermonuclear, nanotechnological) and mass mind-control.
