In 1972 NASA launched the "Jupiter Plaque", an engraved tablet depicting life on Earth and our location in the cosmos, for any intelligent life that may come across it.
The Los Angles Times asked several prominent artists to draw what they would have put on the plaque and why. To the surprise of everyone, Kirby the futurist and visionary drew two superbeings, a man and a woman, that would scare away potential conquerors. Suggesting to intelligent life that everyone on Earth are Supermen. This was his explanation:
"I see no wisdom in the eagerness to be found and approached by any intelligence with the ability to accomplish it from any sector of space. In the meetings between ‘discoverers’ and ‘discoverees’, history has always given the advantage to the finders. In the case of the Jupiter Plaque, I feel that a tremendous issue was thoughtlessly taken out of the world forum by a few individuals who have marked a clear trail to our door. My point is who will come-a-knocking, the trader or the tiger?"
