Echo Homo (Superior)

"...[W]e know, you must remember, that homo sapiens has little more to contribute to the music of this planet, nothing in fact but vain repetition. It is time for finer instruments to take up the theme."
-John Wainwright, Odd John: A Story Between Jest and Earnest by Olaf Stapledon (1935)

"The Earth is a bitch; we've finished our news. Homo sapiens have outgrown their use. All the strangers came today; and it looks as though they're here to stay."
-David Bowie, "Oh! You Pretty Things", Hunky Dory (1971)

"We are the future, Charles, not them. They no longer matter."
-Erik Lehnsherr, a.k.a. Magneto, X-Men, directed by Bryan Singer (2000)
