In the famous Superhero-clash drama Dawn of Justice, directed by Zack Snyder, a poignant scene is where eccentric entrepreneur Lex Luthor makes Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne meet.
The backdrop is a swanky function, a private duo hosted by the eccentric billionaire which is attended by Clark Kent, the journalist and, Bruce Wayne, who, for a change isn’t in his cape about to smash heads but out there to steal some vital data.
What happens next?
Well, what stands out as the peak of this occurrence- a colossal one actually- is that two powerful characters, that are as similar to one another as is Kryptonite to carbon fiber, meet together for the first time.
Now, this is something big, something mega- fearing this might be another cliche- since obviously, it’s not always that The Dark Knight aka the Batman gets to meet the subliminal Superman, isn’t it?
Finally, that the duo meets is rather short-lived but despite of everything begins an equation that has this understated but powerful alliance in the end.
Now, put the superhero context in the realm of urban mobility and you’d find that two iconic men, boasting of powers that are, in no way, less appealing than the Batman and the Superman came together for real. And while Lex Luthor made them meet, this alliance could shape the world in its own unique way.
A few hours back, Oracle’s Larry Ellison invested $1 billion in Elon Musk’s Tesla. In so doing, Larry Ellison became the second-largest individual investor in Tesla and owns nearly $3 million Tesla.
Now this is interesting, isn’t it?
At the outset, while this might seem a big corporate investment where one of the richest men in the world decided to pump in money in an idea who’s time has come- for the planet- it is more significant than that.
That the ninth-richest man in the world has joined hands with Tesla- an investment needn’t only be viewed from the context of a robust injection of money- is actually the coming together of two independent visionaries who’ve come together to raise the game and the stakes in this dynamic sphere.
Ever since the news of Larry Ellison’s investment in Tesla got confirmed, international publications were rampant in their capture of the event and India’s NDTV shared the following:
Tesla has recently been in rough waters both due to its manufacturing limits and due to founder Elon Musk’s problems with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission over announcements of taking the company private over twitter over which he was heavily fined. The automaker has also been struggling with meeting deadlines for deliveries of the extremely popular Tesla Model 3 sedan. As of now, reports suggest Tesla is making close to 4700 Model 3s every week in order to meet the massive demand in the model that stretches all the way into the hundreds of thousands of back orders.
That said, it is also worthwhile to reiterate for those who may know already that Tesla’s Elon Musk and Oracle’s Larry Ellison have been friends for a while now. So what can this alliance bring forth to the world- well, let’s wait and see, shall we?
