Call yourself a supervillian? You failed to blow up the moon! NASA just don't get it. I'm not sure they were even trying properly. They say they weren't trying to anyway, they just wanted to kick up some dust or something. Normally I'd just assume this was a supervillain lie, but I don't think these chaps have got it in them. They didn't even manage to do that, anyway. Rule number one of supervilliany, blow up the moon! So people can't see you getting up to your nefarious deeds in the moonlight, although perhaps they can see your sinister silhouette.

I've no interest in getting up to anything naughty myself of course. The very idea. But I am interested in quality, and self-improvement, and being all you can be, and if these poor souls are to get the most out of being supervillians they will need to do it properly. And ever since Professor Moriarty tried to blow up the moon in The Case Of The Trying To Blow Up The Moon blowing up the moon has been a mandatory module of the supervillian certification scheme, and NASA didn't even have to worry about Sherlock Holmes using a cloudbuster and wind machine to block their ray gun.
This is what the moon is there for. It's nothing special to blow up itself - BUT - it is very visible from Earth, so it's good for blowing up to impress people. You could blow up the sun, but that would be crossing the line, that's just nasty. Another planet - hardly anyone would notice. Earth? No, you're a supervillain, not a terrorist! No, it's got to be the moon. If you can't get they well you might as well give up and just be an ordinary villain. Enjoy your moustache-twirling.
that's all from me for now
see you around
