[[EvilGloating Due the first one to appear having bragged about them having been based on Angus Fangus (a journalist with an uncanny talent for spotting the worst in people)]], Paperinik was able to realize the last part and got the soldiers to simply stand down, resulting in the Evronian super soldiers ''instantly'' starving and dying.
