No, of course you don't. Prometheus was a god who stole the power of fire from the other gods and gave control of it to the mortals. In essence, he gave us technology, he gave us power. Actually, sort of. You see whoever controls technology controls the world. The Roman empire ruled the world because they built roads. The British empire ruled the world because they built ships. America; the atom bomb. And so on and so forth. I just want what Prometheus wanted. Gods are selfish beings who fly around in little red capes and don't share their power with mankind. No, I don't want to be a *god*. I just want to bring fire to the people. And... I want my cut.[/i] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-f04lznji0]watch video here![/url]

OvomorphMember0 XPJan-12-2013 3:59 PM@HICKS GREAT analogy. Weyland paraphrases Lex during the TED monlogue (Blu-Ray extra) to a good degree. Weyland also viewed himself as "god' as well as wanting "his cut": having "immotality" along with the power of TRILLIONS from advanced techonolgies that he, like Luthor says, can "give" to mortals as HE deems fit to dispense (and, ultimately control himself).

OvomorphMember0 XPJan-12-2013 4:46 PMi was watching the remake of clash of the titans the other day (sam worthington.. yum!) anyhoo at one point this character queen cassiopea i think starts going on about how they dont need the gods etc and ends her speech by loudly proclaimimg "we are the gods now"....... i wonder if someone had been waatching it for the greek myth themes and caught that or wether its coincidence?
