Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #353: WAYNE ENTERPRISES NEEDS TO BATMAN DOWN ITS HATCHES

Bob Ingersoll

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    Whether Batman was ever a thief or not depends on bookkeeping and corporate procedures.

    Many corporations write busted prototypes off the books and sell them for scrap. (Usually for pennies on the gigabuck.)

    As long he bought the scrapped prototypes legitimately (possibly through a dummy corporation), which Bruce Wayne could easily afford to do, he’s not a thief.

    He might be breaking other laws – by engaging in bid-rigging, maybe – but as long as he paid a reasonable scrap price, he’s not stealing from WayneCo.
