"From the patent photos, I was expecting the Omnidroid from The Incredibles."

"Actually, I was reminded more of the Robot Spy from the old Jonny Quest cartoon."
(Winchell Chung 12/22/2010 6:52:51 AM)
"Holy crap. Who knew that supervillains and arch nemeses need to take out patents! I guess it would be a pain to be sued while trying to take over the world. I found some video, will add to the article. Jonny Quest was one of my favorites; my son likes it, too. The Robot Spy is one of my favorite episodes. Thanks!"

"Guard! Get tanks, flamethrowers - anything! That thing must be stopped!"

I also added the Omnidroid 08 robot from The Incredibles; thanks, readers, for helping me improve my article."

"@ Bill, It is USA that wants to monopolize its hegemony unlike China whose intention currently exists in wild western imagination."

"**off-topic political rant**

Back on topic, I think that the choice of Dr. Zin as a villain had more to do with the Jonny Quest program's fascination with exotic locales than anything else."
