Kitty Kowalski: Lex, your friends give me the creeps.
Lex Luthor: Prison is a creepy place, Kitty. One needs to make creepy friends in order to survive. Even a man with my vast talents is worth less inside than a carton of cigarettes and a sharp piece of metal in your pocket. [walks over to his bookshelves] Do you know the story of Prometheus? No, of course, you don't. Prometheus was the god who stole the power of fire from the other gods and gave control of it to mortals, in essence, he gave us technology, he gave us power.
Kitty Kowalski: So, we're stealing fire? In the Arctic?
Lex Luthor: Actually, sort of. You see whoever controls technology controls the world. The Roman empire ruled the world because they built roads. The British Empire ruled the world because they built ships. America; the atom bomb. And so on and so forth. I just want what Prometheus wanted.
Kitty Kowalski: Sounds great, Lex. But you're not a god.
Lex Luthor: Gods are selfish beings who fly around in little red capes and don't share their powers with mankind. No, I don't want to be a god, I just want to bring fire to the people. And I want my cut.
