The Price Isn't Right

Our next Legion operative on file is comedian and game show host, Drew Carey.

Carey has taken over the Price is Right which automatically raises suspicion. Bob Barker has worked tirelessly throughout his career to keep Batman's foes from becoming contestants on the popular game show when they would regularly show up in the audience unannounced. Mr. Barker was committed to preventing his hour of television from being hijacked by evil villains like the Joker and the Penguin in order to advance their sinister motives by guessing the right prices on the very items they have been known to steal; thereby, rigging all those cars, blenders, and toasters with explosives and putting them back on the general market.

Carey, on the hand, has been seen around town dining with the Penguin, Catwoman, and Harvey "Two-Face" Dent. He's been on several secret dates with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. His motives are suspect.

According to CNN:

"I didn't want to do TV in the first place," he said over lunch last week. "I'd be happy going to soccer games, traveling. I never have to work again. I can live off my interest. I don't even have to touch the principal."

So why is he planning to do TV? Possibly because it will give the Legion of Doom the connection they need to overtake the nation's most popular TV game show and use it to hypnotize viewers with jumbled, incorrect prices on bunk goods loaded with mind control devices to spread their evil across the nation.

So when you tune into the Price is Right, don't be too surprised when you hear the announcer cry out, "Mr. Freeze, come on down. You're the next contestant on The Price is Right". Then Carey will know what it really means to get a cold reception from a chilly audience.

Great, now I'm going to have a crisis of faith, Rev. Elvis. Drew is the country's most visible soccer fan and a great ambassador for my favorite (non-automotive) sport. But you say he's in league with the Legion of Doom. Whatever shall I do? If I send money will it help?

No, JDB, please don't send money. Everything the First Church needs is provided through the grace of Batman and our Holy Starfleet Captains.

It may not be too late for Mr. Carey. If we ask the Martian Manhunter for guidance, perhaps he can sway him away from his sinisters and bring him into the light of the Watchtower.
