Can you think of any examples of knowledge gone evil?

I'm writing an essay on the evils of knowledge (stupid, I know) and I have to think of examples of cases where knowledge resulted in something bad due to pride. The only one I can think of is in spider man when that octopus guy almost blows up NYC because he's obsessed with his crystal ball of light he created.

Well, I'd say Einstein is a classic example. He may not be the one responsible for creating the atomic bomb, but his mathematical equation about the nature of energy, E = MC2, led others into the concept of creating one. His discovery was a blessing and a curse at the same time.
