Black Adam, on Confidence

"At last, I've reached Earth, after flying for 5000 years from the farthest star, where I was banished by old Shazam! The world is certainly different today than what it was when last I knew it! But I will conquer and rule it!"
Black Adam
, "The Might Marvels Join Forces!"

Wow! Even though you have the power to level mountains, and an old guy in a dress and sandals poofed you off to a distant star. Even though you're entering the world that harnessed the power of the atom and your idea of technology is the inclined plane. Even though you are so naive that you are about to be defeated by Uncle Dudley, perhaps comicdom's most death-deserving buffoon (not counting Stan Lee).

Still, your third sentence after arriving on Earth is: "But I will conquer and rule it!"

*sniff* If we all had that kind of confidence, think what a world this would be!

It would be a much more conquered and ruled world, in any event.
