Default Chapter 2: The Theta Club (A Raincoat Cult)

This chapter explores the eerie 'competition' posed by a student-led cult called The Theta Club, which may be involved in an anti-federal terrorism plot on Halloween Eve and based in Yale University (a prestigious Ivy League school in the USA).

Could this be a 'Communist Manifesto red-flag' like 9/11?

Everything praises America's educators, so where will this praise blossom?

Silmon Sloan was doing very well, and the Gotham Gazette hailed it as a new age symbol of capitalism achievement. It had gained the necessary 'socio-cultural prestige' to cement it as "the thinking man's Toys 'R Us." Edward Nygma was giddy, and Bruce Wayne (Batman) felt paranoid. "How is Silmon Sloan different from any other mega-corporate entity devoted solely to profit?"

Nygma got a phone call from his business advisor, Baroness Devon. She told him that a new 'underground anti-establishmentarianism faction' calling itself The Theta Club had emerged and chapters sprung up across American colleges and universities --- Yale, Florida State, Colorado University, Boston College, and UCSF. The Theta Club was a self-professed 'raincoat cult,' encouraging its member to wear raincoats every Halloween (rain-or-shine).

Bruce Wayne was reading some of the manifestos and manuscripts distributed by The Theta Club. The chapter at Yale University clearly presented in its mission statement the organization's interest to challenge the social prominence of Silmon Sloan by providing ancillary arguments about the psycho-sociological value of 'pedestrian mobilization.' The Yale chapter printed, "We urge our members to wear raincoats every Halloween, since water falls from the sky (sometimes corrupted with acid)."

A reporter for the Gotham Gazette interviewed the president of the Yale chapter of The Theta Club.

GAZETTE: Why is your organization called 'The Theta Club'?

YALE THETA: "Alpha-Beta-Theta"! 'Theta' is bronze ---meaning true rival.

GAZETTE: Is it important that your 'club' is student-managed?

YALE THETA: Our purpose is to draw the attention of America's teachers.

GAZETTE: Are you critical of the American educational system?

YALE THETA: American youngsters are hypnotized by Silmon Sloan.

GAZETTE: What is your 'academic lesson'?

YALE THETA: Raincoats should be worn without shame.

GAZETTE: Do you believe acid-rain has 'corroded' the raincoat?

YALE THETA: We show the Bollywood film Raincoat to sing about Satan!

Batman sent a memo to Commissioner Gordon of the GCPD:

"I believe The Theta Club will engage in a student-led public act of terrorism on Halloween Eve 2016. The initiative will be spear-headed by the chapter at Yale University, and New Haven (Connecticut) residents will find countless students marching in raincoats with picket-signs that red, 'Acid-rain is a deformity on Earth's beautiful face!' Furthermore, I suspect this seemingly peaceful protest will serve as some kind of 'traffic distraction' for a much more terrifying explosives-related violent terrorist act (perhaps directed at the Connecticut Financial Center)."
