Linda: Why do you always get to read the top story, Morbo?
Morbo: Because viewers trust a deep male voice, and huge, throbbing forehead veins!
The man on the screen was an extraordinary-looking individual. He seemed an Earthman, yet his tall, gaunt, black-clothed figure, his enormous bulging forehead and skull, and his hypnotically burning black eyes, gave to his aspect some indefinable but startling aura of the superman.
— Captain Future and the Space Emperor, by Edmond Hamilton.
