World domination comrade: The Brain or Mojo Jojo? | The Tylt
You ever have that one moment, the one where your train’s delayed yet again or when someone else drives slow in the left lane, and you just can’t help but think, “Man, if I had control of things, none of this would ever happen" ? What if we told you that you had two evil geniuses on deck that could help you take over the world? One’s Brain, a mouse that makes up for his small stature with super smarts; the other’s Mojo Jojo, a monkey with big brains and a boss cape. Who do you choose?
World domination comrade: The Brain or Mojo Jojo?
“Pinky and the Brain” is a children’s show that had one of the most memorable opening themes of all times and which basically expresses how most people feel about working with inept coworkers. The series follows our buddy, The Brain (or just “Brain,” as he’s known to his one friend), and his less-than-bright sidekick, Pinky. Every time Brain comes up with a near-perfect scheme for world domination, Pinky somehow always, just always knows how to mess it straight up.
There are a couple of wins when it comes to co-domination with Brain. For one thing, he’s genetically engineered to be super intelligent, so there’s really no beating that. For another, he has one of the greatest voices around. Vocal range and elocution help a lot when it comes to intimidating people, especially if you want to become a supreme ruler (although the fact that he’s a talking animal is probably intimidating enough).
The one drawback of working with Brain? He’s a mouse. If you’re not a fan of rodents, you’ll obviously write working with him off. Otherwise, his small size might make him hard to find should plans go awry, or if you just have a simple question to ask about your plans (“Which button do I push again?”). Best to stick with someone that’s at least over two foot.
“The Powerpuff Girls” is a classic. Despite its protagonists lacking noses and ears, “The Powerpuff Girls” is a lighthearted cartoon about how you can be sugar, spice, everything nice, and still kick villainous cabooses. Especially if that villainous caboose belongs to Mojo Jojo.
Mojo Jojo is an evil mutated chimpanzee that lives in a sick penthouse, dons a luxurious cape, wears go-go boots, and boasts a helmet that would make Magneto cry. His background story is actually a bit tragic—he was Professor X’s (the Powerpuff Girls’ dad) lab monkey way before the girls were ever created. After they came around, he became jealous and bitter, dedicating his newly formed gigantic brain to destroying them and obtaining power. And nothing drives evil more than pettiness.
The thing about working with Mojo Jojo is that he’s always referring to himself in the third person. Other than that, Mojo Jojo is known for his rather creative efforts when it comes to attacking the City of Townsville and beyond. Team up with Mojo Jojo, and you’ll be ruling the world in style.
