-->'''Iky''': Ya'see, you're like me, Mr. McElroy. You're a sky-high-etrist, I'm a sky-high-etrist. See, I always knew I'd be a drug dealer, even when I was a kid. I saw me dad hit me mother, me mother hit me brother, me brother hit me sister, and me sister fuck me father. So I suppose it's inevitable, really. I mean, you'd have to be on drugs just to live in that madhouse, wouldn't you?

to:

* Syndrome from TheIncredibles technically has one, but it's [[DisproportionateRetribution not very good]]. Essentially, the superhero he idolized as a kid wouldn't let him be his sidekick. That's it. [[SarcasmMode Surely a good reason to murder every superhero in the world]].
