|Where was he before this?|
|It could also be a poor bat's man cave.|
That aforementioned special talent which Cheapjack possesses involves making weaponry – robots, assault vehicles, flamethrowers, mobile headquarters – out of garbage and trash. This would all be very impressive until you remember that Superman and Batman routinely beat the living hell out of robots, assault vehicles, flamethrowers and mobile headquarters made out of state-of-the-art scientific equipment tougher and more powerful by a factor of a hundred or more than junk. Cheapjack may as well tape guns on the side of a cardboard box and call it a mecha for all the good his other inventions do him. His mobile battle station has steel arms and pinewood chassis. What is this, a Boy Scout Derby?
Like more than a few mid-80s bad guys, Cheapjack’s big plan revolves around a cheaply-produced, highly addictive super-drug. His is called Synthedrine. “It’s a wonder drug” he explains, “One I can synthesize practically anywhere… and sell it far cheaper.” It’s a wonder drug he manufactures on the cheap inside a wooden shack and is distributed by a biker gang. So it’s meth.
Cheapjack’s outing against Batman and Superman ends with basically Batman telling Superman “Hey, go destroy his walking battle station” and Superman replies “You mean like this?” and then punches it and it falls down like an old gazebo. Sorry Grant Morrison Cheapjack Walter White guy, see you in Seven Soldiers and/or at the Emmys!
