    Well, I'm nott hat knowledgeable, but what does he do to dismantle the systemic threat of Capitalism ?

    He doesn't buy stuff. He steals them and gives them away free. Since, Consumers drive capitalism. Instant burn. Mwahaha!

    It's either the House of El or the Atlanteans for me...

    But personally I'd just love to be part of Billy's family.

    I like to think he chews at it from the margins. Like most superheroes, if he eventually did it, the status quo would likely end traditional superhero conflict and the story would end.

    (Not a bad standalone idea story idea though.)

    Yeah, now that you say it... an elseworld book where Ollie manages to destroy capitalism to build something else in its places which somewhat works would be great.

    Or it could all end in disaster but I'd like it less xD !

    Well he's worked with eco-terrorists on occasion, tends to focus on corrupt businesses over super villains, and in many versions tends to be a minimalist who doesn't spend (or have) a lot of cash.

    He's also gotten into politics on occasion, running for mayor and stuff, and while I wasn't reading the books during these times (happenstance not boycott) I'm pretty sure he pushed as far-left a agenda as he could get away with.
