The Cybus Industries website, which tied into Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, featured an interview with John Lumic, the creator of the Cybermen of Pete's World. When asked the which four people he would invite to dinner, Lumic listed Genghis Khan along with Niccolo Machiavelli and Adolf Hitler, citing all three as having "got what they wanted in spite of the little people".[1]
