Just curious: Who painted this ISA portrait? I mean, in-universe, did they all just sit for a portrait? Was it one of the ISA themselves who likes to paint? Or maybe a family member or henchman? Possibly one of Ito’s drones…
Are there outside artists one can hire but then sign or swear (or threaten) to a non-disclosure agreement? And did Jordan kill the artist afterward to ensure their secrecy? I’m just genuinely interested in how a supervillain group commissions a big portrait like that. Maybe there are supervillain artists that are popular in those circles.
In fact I am curious about all the minutia of running a super-villain group in general. How do you build a headquarters and furnish it? Are there architecture firms and designers who specialize in that?
And how do you recruit henchmen? Do they have health plans, 401ks or pensions? Do supervillain groups have HR departments?
If you are a henchman and you get injured in a fight, and have to go to the hospital, are the staff legally obligated to report frozen body parts or raygun blasts or magical lightning injuries to the cops? Or do you take the job knowing that even a minor injury might result in your death because you can’t be taken to the hospital for fear of police involvement, or perhaps you might let something slip under the influence of anesthesia.
This is not a criticism at all but rather a speculation into how the practicalities of running an organization like that would work.
