From the press release: “The Philanthropist chronicles the heroic adventures of a billionaire turned vigilante philanthropist.” The purple prose reminded me of the old Johnny Dollar radio program which revolved around a “fabulous” freelance insurance investigator “with the action-packed expense account.”  The “vigilante philanthropist” idea is amusing.  Does he forcibly give money to people who don’t want it?
