So remember the time President Reagan outlawed superheroes and replaced them with the Suicide Squad? It happened. If you were politically aware of the Reagan years (by which I mean, saw Saturday Night Lives sketches about it or maybe a Michael Moore documentary), you might also remember that Reagan was considered by many to be other people's puppet. Who REALLY ran the White House? Well, I've heard everything from good ol' Big Business to Nancy's astrologer.
But would you believe... DeSaad?
Looks like Michael Moore missed a trick. He should take a camera crew to Apokolips right away.
