  • We see that Bishop is back and has a plan to defend the world from invasion even if it means destroying 57% of the earths population.

  • Quotes (6)

    • Bishop: That is the purpose of the EPF, my purpose: to create a new humanity, a new superior race born of enhanced DNA; DNA acquired from genetic manipulation, alien autopsies, and even stole from your sons. But it was your mutated rat DNA makes so nearly human that has allow me to finally complete the process, and for that, I thank you.

    • Bishop: Good. You're awake, Master Splinter. Splinter: Bishop! Bishop: Welcome. Your unique genetic makeup has been very useful to me indeed. In fact, the mutated DNA I'm extracting from you, even as we speak, will help save all humanity, but you look confused. Allow me to explain.

    • Bishop: (to Splinter) My plans are far from over, rodent. You have no idea! No idea!

    • Bishop: You don't understand. I've created life! Splinter: Bishop, no one has the right to play God! Bishop: I am taking the necessary steps to defend the world! It is my duty! Splinter: The world has enough monsters! It does not need yours!

    • Bishop: Not only are these future members of the Earth Protection Force, but they are the new humanity. These clones are awaiting final DNA sequencing. By cellular acceleration, I can give birth to an army within 6 hours fully trained thanks to my advances in bio data transference and your DNA. I've uploaded complex survival tactics into this prototype. Splinter: What you will do with them? Bishop: Mainstream them into the population, of course. We have aliens out there right now living amongst us. My Slayers will fare them all out. Splinter: What if innocent people get fared out instead? What if errors are made? Bishop: Not my concern. I'm a bigger picture kind of guy. Besides, my calculations suggest that it would be beneficial if 57 percent of the Earth's population simply disappeared.

    Trivia (2)

    • When Bishop is escaping his destroyed lab, look closely as he climbs up the ladder. Where there should be "blood," there is a silvery fluid on his coat instead. Obviously, Bishop isn't human, or at least partially.

    • When Bishop shows Splinter the image of President Grant from 1870, signing the Earth Protection Force into being, the other man in the picture looks suspiciously like Bishop, sans glasses.

    • Bishop: I have created life!
      In the classic horror story (eg. Frankenstein), a scientist endeavors to create life. There was also the old horror movie stereotypical black and white laboratory shown at the beginning.
