Come Out and See the Massive Bain Supervillain Congratulate Romney

On Thursday August 30, former Bain Capital CEO Mitt Romney will be officially anointed as the Republican candidate for President of the United States. That same day, a massive, 15-foot-tall supervillain dubbed “Bain” will be unveiled outside Bain Capital HQ on Madison Avenue. Since Romney headed Bain Capital, organizers of the event wanted to honor the achievements of Bain’s “longtime ‘partner in crime’ Willard Mitt Romney.”

In the press release Bain (the supervillain not the company) “gleefully” stated:

I have slashed incomes, smashed jobs, and torn working families to pieces. If Romney wins the election, it will be Dark Night indeed.

The plan is for a hundred workers to be at the event to challenge Bain, many sharing real life stories about their nightmarish experiences working for Bain Capital-owned businesses. Organizers have invited folks to come and help challenge “this sinister plan to take over our Democracy.”

WHO:  The corporate monster known as Bain, confronted by 100 workers, and you!
WHAT: A giant 13″ monster will deliver a speech in front of Bain Capital accompanied by his corporate henchmen.
WHEN: 12:30-1:30pm (Lunch break!)
WHERE: Bain Capital Headquarters 590 Madison (57th and Madison).

The topic of Bain as a comic book villain has been discussed widely this summer as the villain in The Dark Knight Rises was named Bane.  This lead to calls of conspiracy by some. The event is supported by United New York.
