I agree with your sarcasm… to an extent.

Once upon a time, a top secret FOS in the exotic and remote Arctic made a certain amount of sense. Now, the world is better explored and – alas – the Arctic is melting. So the very idea of a massive fortress that is both secret and secure is problematic.

But even in the good old days, many a super villain managed to find the FOS and infiltrate, sabotage and/or steal from it. It was a familiar Superman plot device in the classic comics (also used, if you recall, in SII). So as long as we’re not singling out SR as uniquely guilty of this sin, I’ll join you in your criticism.
