Super Villains

Now why exactly,
was it that all the old super villains,
seemed to focus on inane plans,
which were wholly reversible,
while everyone else,
just kind of acvepted it all?

Serious replies only,
and don’t give me any of that,
“it was the 50s and people would
have lost their minds if anything
of consequence happened in a
comic book,”
I know.

I’m just sitting here wondering,
why exactly no one ever stopped to ask,
if the everyday people,
were actually cool with yet another,
world ending catastrophe,
every other month.
