What could it be? When was it built, and for what purpose? Why is it seemingly empty? It looks like a product of the 1960s or perhaps even the 1970s, but who knows? It's been sitting there ever since I've lived here, which is a good fifteen years now.
The only conclusion I came come to is that it's some sort of abandoned super villain lair. Most likely it belonged to Doctor TötenTod (there's a lot of Germans around here), a genuine certified super villain and evil genius who held the city in thrall for a few hours way back in the Sixties. As everyone knows, the Doctor was defeated by Evansville's one and only superhero, Captain Cando (pronounced as the peppy "Can Do," not the sarcastic "Can Dough" as some wags have suggested).
Obviously Doctor TötenTod was captured and incarcerated before he could train his death ray on the city, leaving the lair to sit empty and idle? Who knows what kind of evil technology might be sitting inside, just waiting to be activated once again?
Or if there are any super villains of the comic book or Bond-ian type, here you go: a genuine secret headquarters with personality and style! It's got an unobstructed 360 degree view of the city, perfect for spotting approaching super heroes flying through the sky. The spacious rooftop features plenty of room to install your death ray apparatus. Plus there's ample parking for your minions' convenience!
Save the Secret Super Villain Headquarters before it's too late!
