Miss Martian: I feel so silly. Who knew a Martian could be vulnerable to a human virus?
Robin: Uhh, H.G. Welles.
Parasite: The pièce de résistance was Dawn Danger, or whatever her real name is. Thought I'd munch on her trapeze skills. Imagine my surprise when she tasted like Martian Manhunter instead, ummm. She made a lovely appetizer but guess who I want for my entree. Ummm, now that's the full-bodied Kryptonian flavor I love.
Parasite: You know, I almost never say this, but I'm sated. Hate to eat and run.
Miss Martian: What have you got against Geneva, anyway?
Parasite: Never liked the food. But the menu keeps improving.
Miss Martian: I'm just the appetizer, remember?
Character bios: King Faraday, Parasite
Miss Martian: Who knew a Martian could be vulnerable to a human virus?
Referencing H.G. Wells' novel The War of the Worlds (1898). The novel is told in the first-person and chronicles an attack by Martians upon Earth, using heat rays, poisonous gas, and toxic vegetation. In the end the Martians are defeated from within because their biologies are unable to withstand human viruses.
