DC Comics Executive Vice President John Rood Tried To Tip Spider-Man

The man in the T-shirt is DC Comics Executive Vice President of Sales, John Rood. Wearing a slightly inappropriate Low Wage Puppet T-shirt, considering his status in the company, generous remuneration, firts class flights and sitting in expensive seats.  Maybe it’s irony. Maybe it’s the $2.99 comics cutting in. Anyway,  I do like the man.

But for a man who is Exec VP of Sales, shouldn’t he have been wearing a new Justice League shirt?

Anyway, John was the subject of some attention at a baseball match recently at Yankee Stadium where Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter, nicknamed Spider-Man for his penchant for climbing walls when making a save, was playing.

In this case however, John Rood, DC EVP, had dropped his sunglasses. And offered Torii a dollar tip for picking them up and returning them to him in the stand.

Torii decided he didn’t need it… after all, when does Spider-Man take a reward for his do gooding?
