On the other hand, the DCU just doesn't make any *sense*, technologically or economically. At all. The inconsistencies between what they are capable of, technologically, and what they do, are so staggering that the community would soon devolve into long, increasingly rambling posts of incoherent geeky rage. If you aren't ready to deal with the implications of advanced technology, don't write it into your fictional world. Sheesh.
