Self-policing in the realm of villains? Explains why Claw comes across as ethical (within his code) and pretty decent. Although, I suppose an alternate interpretation could be that in response to the government’s “solution” the new normal will be that villains will take care of their own dirty laundry.
And great as always — the nuanced facial expressions that transcend the completely covered face. 🙂

That actually goes a long way towards explaining why the court system didn’t have better protection against the use of mind control then that during Claw’s trial back when. Presumably people are afraid that any safeguards against something like that would count as a violation of this truce. @_@

This reminds me a bit of Flash’s Rogues and how they operate. Not actually a reader of the comics so it was mostly second hand exposure to it, but my understanding is that they have a code of conduct and rules for themselves and by not being excessively evil they don’t suffer as many legal ramifications and both regular citizens and superheroes are going to treat them differently than the ones that doesn’t care how bad they hurt the people that are in their way. I need to read Forever Evil based on one scene from issue number six that I have seen; Johnny Quick (Earth 3’s villainous counterpart to the Flash) facing off against Captain Cold and the short version is that Cold respects the Flash, he doesn’t respect Quick (who bragged to Cold how he killed Cold’s Earth 3 counterpart, who was a cop) and Cold shows how a guy like Claw would keep the really bad guys (like Quick) from getting out of hand.

He went from Small Time to Prime Time in record Time. America where you can go from small time robberies to threatening the President of a Nation in a few sort days, whatta country! Still this is why I really like this comic and this villain. He is morally screwie but he still HAS them as well as just enough badassness to pull it off.

So that’s why Claw is considered a leader in the villain community…
