Improved Supervillainy


Live everyone in my generational cohort I got to thinking about that supervillains do wrong. I mean besides doing evil. It’s struck me the ransom scheme, threatening to blow up the world or some beloved piece of it such as the area where the filmmakers live, is fundamentally flawed. People will fight back against the threat of death.

What supervillains should do for ransom schemes is come up with a plausible threat by which they would embarrass the population. They could demand thousands of billions of dollars a day and get it. And even if a superhero stepped up offering to save the day, municipal authorities would hold him back because think of the consequences if he fails.

And then I wonder what I’m doing that I work out the flaws in supervillain ransom schemes. Well, that’s just the world we live in anymore, I guess. So, should it be “supervillainy” or “supervillainwry”?

  1. Have you done any research on what the word “Nebus” means in the rabbit tongue? I saw Troy again and whispered a few names to him to see if he’d react to any of them (anyway to make a long story short– I know,I know…too late) when I tried “Nebus” he wiggled his ear and looked at me as if I just cursed his whole Warren. Have you ever noticed any of your assorted pet rabbits react at the sound of Nebus ?

    1. No, no, haven’t done any research there. From the rabbits I’ve observed I think most of them have just wanted me to get out of the way, maybe while petting their heads. But that’s about what most humans want of me too, so I don’t think my name has any relevance there.
