G.E.E.C: Goodfellow's Effort Eliminating Computer was created by Dr. Goodfellow in 1973 on the cartoon Super Friends. It could perform all kinds of fantastical stuff like teaching students at home or computer generated actors for movies. Yeah right. Like that could ever happen. Well, as with all giant supercomputers it is too good to be true and G.E.E.C. is no exception and it is up to the Super Friends to shut it down. Why would you put the off switch inside a satellite?
