The Post-Modern Prometheus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thexfilesthepostmodernprometheus.png
Written and directed by Chris Carter

"When Victor Frankenstein asks himself 'Whence did the principle of life proceed?' and then as a gratifying summit to his toils creates a hideous phantasm of a man he prefigures the Post-Modern Prometheus. The genetic engineer whose power to reanimate matter – genes into life – us – is only as limited as his imagination is."
Fox Mulder
