I read that they changed Powerless from being set in an insurance company to a security company because it sounded sleazy for Batman to profit off superhero battles.

well, yeah, that does actually sound pretty sleazy when put that way, especially because we won’t know if the money’s being used to fund watchtower numére dix or orphanage #9,687,787,775 or to feed orphan #675, or something. i can see early plans for this being like an insurance company, and then clark points out, “you look like an asshole capitalist, man.”

bruce probably mutters something like, “because i am those things, clark,” and then reworks the whole thing.
