UNLEASH YOUR INNER DOCTOR OCTOPUS: Former Norwegian Submarine Base For Sale

Norway is a country that stays pretty under the radar at the best of times, making it an ideal getaway for any would be evil mastermind to create their secret new HQ in. Now, the European nation comes that one step closer to allowing you to induldge your inner Doctor Octopus, Megatron or Lex Luthor fantasies with the announced sale of the Olavsvern submarine naval base, for a paltry $17.5-million.

While the bank manager will spin when you tell him why you are taking out a second mortgage of such size, when you elaborate that the property has 13,500 square meters of buildings above ground, 2500 square meters quay and a mountain resort of about the same size he'll probably sign up to be your first henchman. See - you're halfway there! Just pray that pesky Captain America doesn't blow it to shreds before you finish paying for it!

More photos and details, after the jump.

  1. If I had the 17.5 Million handy, I'd pretend I was a super-villain too just to blow shit up from such a cool base, I can;t believe it hasn't already been taken over yet.

  3. Yeah I guess so. Plus you have to have a large bar area. You know? For those rough ,weight-of-the-world days.

  4. You know, I think if more villains offered the hero a beer before they brawled, more goodies would be inclined to see their point of view. Except Batman, he's driving.
