It's a good subverting of this sort of situation, that faced with a typical "I'll give you your heart's desire!" thing, Jaime's deepest desire is actually... sensible, practical and considerate.
(also, funny.)

But at the same time it makes Eclipso look like a right eedjit (this seems to be a running thing with villains against Jaime, actually).
A being of temptation and manipulation somehow not noticing Jaime's whole thing is that, while he does have an alien killing machine at his command, he doesn't like it, and clearly has not taken the chance to Unleash His Dark Impulses.
Eclipso couldn't pick up on any of that?

(Seems like that should be a bigger problem in this sort of situation.
"I shall grant you power, glory, wealth beyond imagining!"
"Make me a banker."
"Err... wouldn't you rather like a nation of your own? Or to crush your enemies? Humiliate those who made you feel small? Get revenge on the world?"
"Banker."
"Not even a little revenge? C'mon, there must be someone you want to get even with."
"Bank. Er. Then I get wealth and success with minimal chance of someone trying to kill or depose me, and I get to be as smug as I like about it. Now get with the granting!"
