Elon Musk, co-founder of PayPal, SpaceX, and electric car company Tesla Motors, sat down with Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert to talk about his latest venture, SpaceX.

Colbert listed Musk’s many accomplishments, then asked him: “Where do you find time for your secret identity as Batman? Because you’re either a superhero or a supervillain.”

“I’m mostly an engineer,” Musk said. “Oh yeah, engineer,” Colbert scoffed. “Bruce Wayne’s a banker.”

Colbert told Musk later, “You’re the future, man.”

Musk told Colbert that he hopes SpaceX, which successfully launched the Falcon 9 rocket into orbit this past June, will be ready in the next few years to take NASA astronauts into space.
