Love this quote on the Lex Luthor Security* page from TV Tropes:

TV Tropes wrote:
There are no examples of Batman's many hideout break-ins in the DCAU because he's Batman...


* Lex Luthor Security is when a work frequently has the protagonist(s) penetrating their opponent's security without showing them doing it (usually for budgetary reasons), giving the impression that they can just walk in unopposed whenever they want.

Wait, the acrostic thread was supposed to be a random silliness thread? I thought it was just supposed to be an acrostic thread!

Perhaps I misspoke.
Oh, well..
I confuse myself,sometimes.
No battle plan survives contact and all that.
Guess we'll move on...

I've always had a soft spot for Havok. Maybe because his brother is such a giant knob.

I would be Dr. Victor von Doom, of course. What? You say he's a supervillain?

[DOOM] Bah! Untrue! Nothing more than a treacherous lie perpetuated by the true villain -- Reed Richards! RICHAAAARRRDS!!! [/DOOM]

Reed Richards is far too useless to be a supervillain.

This looks like a fine place to put this self-powered one gigawatt electromagnet.

*sets it down near balthazar*

May as well turn it on.

*click*

*CA-THUD!*

That was an odd sound, but it is working properly...

eh...

Unfortunately only the first suit was made of iron. All the rest are non-ferrous for obvious reasons. I think you just concussed Dr. Doom.

You sure? It's hard to tell with how hard he's wedged into that crevice. ... Could be Batman with all that gear he carries around... Nope, looks like it's someone else.

Interesting, I thought "The Man of Steel" was just an expression.

You killed John Henry Irons!

Oh yeah, I was supposed to come up with a superhero wasn't I (I did chose other)... Dr. Manhattan. Yeah, I think being darn near omnipotent could be fun.

You know, bringing up JHI, if I had to chose a superVILLIAN to be it'd definitely be Doomsday. I've always been fond of Juggernauts. Probably why I like the Friday the 13th movies and Jason so much. Nothing like an unstoppable force. While I'm on the subject, the Death and Resurrection of Superman was a pretty amazing story arc.

All-Star Superman is a vastly superior "death of Superman" story.

Too bad about the attendant fatalism. He's got very little actual ability to change anything.
