Marvin the Martian, a beloved Looney Tunes character, has spent the last two millennia trying to destroy Earth so he can see Venus. The soft-spoken antihero has some opinions on this planet he seemingly cannot eliminate.

"Humans are quite an interesting specimen. They invent devices to help them communicate with each other more efficiently, and then they invent holding apparatuses to avoid communicating with other humans."

3. Celebrity Gossip

"We have no need for such pointless activities. While Earthlings bicker over which video star has the more elegant attire, we are advancing our weaponry to conquer your helpless people. We once had celebrities on Mars, but they have been disintegrated and used as fuel."

5. Satellites

"Do you Earthlings have any idea how difficult it is to drive to work now? The atmosphere is covered in useless technology. I crashed my spaceship in Las Vegas just the other day."

8. The Mars Rover

"When it first appeared, I thought, ‘Oh goody! A new spaceship? Just for me?!’ While I appreciate the gesture, you silly humans forgot to include seats, air conditioning, and a disintegrating pistol. More worthless junk, I suppose."

9. Gravity

"Simple-minded creatures, your Earth gravity confines you to your planet like prisoners. The gravity on Mars is superior. 62% more superior to be precise. I theorize that even with my smaller stature, I could produce the best dunk this world has ever seen."

Marvin later unveiled that his plans to destroy humanity will involve a basketball showdown on August 4th to end Earth once and for all. Paging Blake Griffin — help?
