In the early days of World Corp., Simon Grimshaw is the face of the organizing managing interviews and public appearances. When an experiment goes wrong and some scientist are killed in the curse of the event, Simon argues with Dade Ellis and Emerson Strange about the ethics and morality of World Corp.'s research. Simon says "What we're on the cusp of is so much greater than the rudimentary concepts of right and wrong”. Dade and Emerson disagree and are worried about where this might lead to.
At some point, Simon writes on open letter to the press saying he has just decided to no longer do any interviews and focus on writing essays for publication in science journals. Later, he parts ways with World Corp. stating that partnerships that once led to the formation of World Corp. are no longer in line with his natural way of doing things, and the way Emerson Strange continues to promote the World Corp. brand is "increasingly ill-advised". He decides to become involved in "more personally fulfilling" pursuits.
