Quandary Resolution 3655
machinate, eat crow, atavism, fugitive


Dr. Frankenstein’s great-grandson machinated to take over the world by creating super warriors using atavisms – cave people reconstructed out of DNA extracted from the fossil bones of ancient man, plus a few mechanized parts; however, his great plan became a fugitive thought and he had to eat crow when the gathering of his prototypes looked more like a steampunk meetup than a platoon of cyborgs going off to war.
