I prefer the term “little polyp buddy” that way it sounds kind of festive. Poor mad scientist…. doctor…. guy. I think it was his failure to achieve his dream which has driven him to pursue Mad Science! Actually I firmly believe that failure of any kind inevitably leads to a life of mad science and super villainy.
You should see the Doom’s day device I built after I failed to become a computer programmer. Don’t worry, I couldn’t program the timer right so it’s just a giant radioactive paper weight now.
That last part was a joke. Please do not add me to yet another watch list. I do not have any idea how to build a Doom’s day device. I can’t even fix my own car properly.
