Ultimate Secret #3

Quote1 My name is Reed Richards. For a time, I was called Mr. Fantastic. I have made mistakes. Dark, painful, foolish mistakes that have caused great and irreparable harm to our world. Irreparable until now. With my allies, I will enact changes to the globe on an ecological, political and sociological level to ensure the longevity of not just this planet, but of the galaxy as a whole. And unlike our predecessors, the Ultimates, we will do it with complete disclosure. Step one, we have negotiated a global peace. Any nations who refuse to comply will be dealt with accordingly, with the minimum loss of innocent life. My new Herbietrons combine the best technology to create logical, thoughtful soldiers, capable of this seemingly impossible task. We have undone the global patent and copyright standards. Effective immediately, all designs, concepts, and scientific progress are in the public domain. We are currently liberating all Stark, Roxxon, Hammer, and Osborn technology. Again, with the minimum loss of life. Through collaborative innovation, we will build tomorrow. I want nothing more than to be surpassed by your ideas and dreams. To allow this dream to come to pass, we are erasing debt. We are removing financial blockages. We are building a society in which financial worries are a thing of the past. The banks are no more. As of this moment, all currency is worth nothing more than the paper it is printed on. The Stark variant of the Sentient Seed is being distributed throughout the world. It has been modified to produce fruit and vegetables at unheard rates effectively ending world hunger. This kind of brilliance from the mutant community is something that we encourage from all communities--human and mutant alike. Currently, Pietro Maximoff is supervising distribution throughout all of the third world. A hybrid zero emission energy technology is being deployed to all of our densely populated regions. Dr. Banner and I have designed this Graphene Polymer solar technology to replace any and all forms of fossil fuel. This is the end of oil dependency. This is what we've done in our first twenty-four hour. There is much, much more to come. The three of us have all committed horrible crimes, and we understand your fear. I assure you it is well deserved. But we will do what we can to win you back, to convince you that we are truly only interested in the good of mankind. Oh, and, one more thing... Ultimates... if you're watching--hell, I know you are--this is how you save the world. Quote2
