Here’s the thing about Jeff Bezos: He hasn’t just upended the book business and set his sights on taking over basically all retail, everywhere, all the time. He also has the singular misfortune of looking like a super villain. (Just ask anyone who works in publishing.)
From the bald head to the power-casual ensembles, it’s like he’s engaged in 24/7 Lex Luthor cosplay (and we’re not the only ones who’ve noticed, either.) Pulling Apollo-era rockets out of the ocean: total super villain move. Watching him buy the Washington Post gives us faint deja vu–didn’t we see this on an episode of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman?
Allow us to demonstrate.
