"And still deeper the meaning of that story of Narcissus, who because he could not grasp the tormenting, mild image he saw in the fountain, plunged into it and was drowned. But that same image, we ourselves see in all rivers and oceans. It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life; and this is the key to it all. "- Herman Melville, Moby Dick

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
