No Improvement In DC Comics' #ConnnectedTogether Messages

I ludicrously suggested that follow-up images from DC Comics could avoid Superman when advising readers to build their own Batcave beneath their mansions. Or hide away on their very own Paradise Island. Or even use Zeta beams to travel to an isolated asteroid, trigger Boom Boxes to find a Fifth, Sixth or Seventh World, or become imps of the fifth dimension, where every piece of matter is isolated in its own universe away from the next.

Well, it seems like DC Comics thought I was serious with another #ConnectedTogether message running in yesterday's comics. Encouraging readers to be like Batman and stay in their batcave.

Because everyone is an orphan heir to one hundred billion dollars wealth, with a large enough estate to hollow out and weaponise their own cave structure underneath their family mansion.

As Stephen Colbert told Matt Damon on A Late Show With Stephen Colbert, "No one wants to hear about famous people who have it so great. We went over the guidelines at the rich people club. You say how lucky you are, give a shout-out to the healthcare workers, then zip it! Don't tell them about mermaid hunting in the secret ocean only we know about. Okay, see you at Scarjo's mountaintop lobster-fest."

DC Comics is totally going to do the Paradise Island thing for the following Tuesday, aren't they?
