Well, as long as he lives the League of Super Redundant Heroes, I reckon it’s all good.
correction: “…leaves the LOSRH alone….”
Nah, now it’s Keith’s turn to accidentally save the world…
As long as it takes as little work as possible. Speaking of which, I’m surprised he does actual work that doesn’t involve demeaning the other employees.
Those papers he’s holding were done by employees. He’s just taking them to the boss. And maybe take some if not all of the credit for them.
“How did you stop the maniacal fiend”
“I called in the IRSwat and the AUDITmen”
Not to mention Red Tape, Captain 1040A, and Taxus Maximus.
Save the world by forgetting to file the paperwork to get the Death-Ray engineers in for the annual maintenance/tune-up?
I think that the work he does is demeaning the other employees, Bunny. After all, he’s in management.
Only the most powerful companies is run by supervillains.
Like they say at Evil Inc.: “You can get away with more evil if you do it legally.”
Yes. I remember that the only way they nailed Al Capone is because he didn’t file his taxes.
Except he was doing a hell of a lot of other illegal stuff, too. Most of what he made money from was illegal. He apparently just did a crap job of laundering and hiding it.
It’s hard to prosecute murder, when you have no body. It’s hard to prosecute someone for the criminal activities of his businesses, when he has no legal ties to those businesses, except through underlings.
But, the money has to be tracked on paper, or you can be in trouble, when you own money that you couldn’t have possibly made from your assets either on paper or in your tax filings. That’s sometimes easier to track.
Oh, and I think he filed his taxes, just didn’t report the vast majority of what he made through his criminal enterprises.
Right. You run that though a dummy Cayman Island corporation through various shell companies.
Yup, that’s one of the ways to do it. I don’t think it was quite as difficult to hide money from the government, though, back in those days. Prior to computers being a thing, it could take tens of thousands of (highly-paid) man-hours to chase down money that someone with a lot of resources wanted to keep hidden.
It takes something as huge as the Capone situation for the government to want to spend that kind of money. Usually, IRS auditors are spent going after mostly-legal corporations to figure out where they can recoup money from companies whose overzealous accountants have claimed undeserved exemptions.
It reminds me of a novel in which the protagonist, a wealthy business tycoon, was being attacked economically by the antagonist. One of the methods used was using some political favors to sick the revenue service on the guy. The protagonist was demonstrated to be upright and honest by the fact that the state auditors couldn’t find any deductions to reject. In fact, they owed him a refund for several deductions that he didn’t claim.
Clearly, the author knew fuck-all about economics and accountancy, since the situation only demonstrated that the protagonist was a stupid business owner and should fire all of his accountants. If your accountants aren’t claiming every possible deduction, whether 100% justified or not, then they aren’t doing their job. It’s the government’s job to sort through the edge cases and allow or deny the claimed deductions. It’s amazing how many deductions are allowed which you would think are complete bullshit.
At least he is honest in his intentions.
Given that roughly a third of the city’s population are supervillains, that revelation should hardly be a surprise.
But since the other 1/3 is Superheroes/Vigilantees and Keith is neither, what does that make the blonde woman?
I wonder who is in those monitors. I see at least a Doc Ock and a Catwoman lookalikes shapes.
Top right is most likely a Dr Doom lookalike.
Not sure, a lot of villains wear hoods, like the Hobgoblin, the Taskmaster, the… oh boy… the Hood…
Left of the header is propably the Joker. Who else would have such a smile?
Above Catwoman could be Bane.
Huh, high Ratio of Batman Villains in there.
It’s like Hank Scorpio, but with a supersuit.
I reckon, given the choice, Keith _would_ choose France.
*sigh* Nobody ever chooses Italy.
You’ve obviously watched that particular episode more recently than I.
I just have a good memory, I can actually recall my third birthday and other things, ironically if I were to recall things just five minutes ago I can actually struggle but I can remember a lot of things and in this case last time I saw that rerun was in 2002.
It helps that it is such a good stand out episode in terms of parody and humor.
Not to mention Hank Scorpio being a dead ringer for Dave Gorman, but without the check shirt.
Well, 2002 is more recently than the only time I’ve watched it (late ’90s, probably when it was first shown, or one of its early repeats), as I somehow end up missing it whenever it’s repeated nowadays.
It is a classic…
Want* not “wan’t”
As the Evil Atom, of Evil Inc. [(c) Brad Guigar] once said, “It’s so much easier to commit evil when you’re on the right side of the law!”
Well now Keith needs to take down his boss. That should be fun to watch.
Thus turning him into the next overlord…
Of course, you just realized that that would require a lot of work, before and after, something he wants to avoid at all costs.
Technically, all CEOs are villains
Let’s be honest. There was like a 60% chance your CEO was a supervillian.
Also a 39% chance he was a suerhero. And only a 1% chance he was a normal guy who people expect to become either a hero or a villain.
I sometimes forget that most versions of Lex Luthor are a self-made gorillionaire.
