Answer: No, he was the greatest time-traveling superhero.

He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Gotta put this somewhere:
It seems that Castro was having a planning meeting just after the victory, and Guevara was nodding off in a corner when Castro asked if anyone there was an economist.

Guevara stuck his hand up reflexively, and Castro said, "Fine, you can be the Economics Minister."

After the meeting Castro came over to Guevara and said, "I didn't know you were an economist."

"Economist?" Guevara replied, "Oh, I thought you said communist."
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."
