Corporate Man is called in to investigate reports of vile, unethical business practices at Great American Business Company. What he finds there just might destroy him (except we all know the ending to The Tragic Death of Corporate Man so it should be fairly obvious that it can't really destroy him, though it can come close).

Enslaved by the Bonus Whores is an all new Corporate Man Adventure Serial. Chapters will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

After nearly a decade of imprisonment, Corporate Man returns to find the economy in ruins and his deadliest enemies in control of all but a fraction of society's wealth. He embarks upon a quest to set right the wrongs of the business world; a task that will ultimately destroy him.

Chapter 90

Should he wear the cape he wondered as he looked himself over in the wardrobe mirror, should he wear a costume at all?  Did anyone wear costumes anymore?
Professor Inflation had been too busy this past decade to consider a change in his attire.  In the seventies he’d worn a stuffy sweater, thick glasses, beard, and corduroy pants.  The palette of which he kept warm and natural.  In the eighties he’d donned a white lab jacket, safety goggles, and a host of neon undershirts.  This failed to portray the sort of professor he was, but it was the eighties and accuracy and depth were not in fashion.  Back in the sixties he’d gotten away with a cape and tight, form fitting clothes.  He had even managed to pull off wearing pinks and purples and mauves. 
Retro was back in wasn’t it?
Perhaps he should break out the cape.  For nearly two decades he’d been in expensive suits.  Wasn’t it time for a change?  Shouldn’t he try to bring some of the flash, some of the fun, back to inflation?
Professor Inflation picked up a white suit jacket and considered a pink undershirt, but just for a moment.  He quickly cast them aside and continued rummaging through his closet for something perfect to wear.
