Sometimes I think Superman wouldn't be a very smart guy. All trying to spin the planet backwards really fast trying in vain to make time go backwards, screwing up our ecology in the process, with no understanding whatsoever of the most elementary physics.
probably because we tried to use him as an alternate source of fuel.
This seems like a perfect opportunity to introduce readers like this to Astro City or Irredeemable.
Sometimes I feel like Superman wouldn't be a very good interior decorator, what with trying to make the Fortress of Solitude all warm and inviting, even though it's supposed to be really cold outside, and it's supposed to be for solitude and not for guests.
I love the way most of your art has your subjects flinging spittle everywhere. It is an epidemic in the nerd/geek community.
Just wanted to point out the TORONTO shirt on the guy. Canada in the house!
I don't feel like that was such a stupid thing to say really. I mean not near the levels of stupid some of your guests get.
Finally. A real jus folks.
What he's really saying is, "You know, Superman is just like me."
Nice SMBC reference Mr. Anonymous 2!!!-And if SuperDickery taught us anything: it's that Superman is NOT nice at all, he's a giant bag with which one douches...

I second the Irredeemable recommendation. I mean its pretty much about exactly what he said.But In truth I like Incorruptible more. SLEEP DEPRIVATION AS A SUPER POWER. FUCK YEAH
Superman never really spun the Earth backwards. Common misconception. He flew around the earth faster and faster until he breached the speed of light, and that allowed him to time travel, and from our perspective it looked as if he put the world itself in reverse. But he didn't, because as we all know, that would be impossible. ;)
Either way, he would've torn Earth a new a-hole and killed billions of people if not every life on the planet. But hey, it's just a comic book! I mean, movie. It's just a comic book movie!Incredible coincidence or disturbing conspiracy? Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal covers the Superman-as-fuel topic today! http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2305#comic
Why do you geeks still insist on posting as anonymous? That is soooooo LAME. Make up a name. It's easy.
@Mr. Know-it-all: We do it just to make you piddle all over yourself.
@Mr. Know-it-all: Because we're a bunch of lazy bastards.
@Mr. Know-it-all: Because we hate you.
Well, now that you said THAT, Mr. Know-it-all, I'm going to remain "anonymous" purely out of spite. Because that's just the way I roll!!!
Anonymous IS the name I registered as.
Heh, Mr. Know-it-all is a troll eating troll.
Anonymous #3 is exactly right. This is a person who should read Astro City.
http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2305#comic Well THAT was fucking depressing, largely because a nice guy like Superman totally WOULD be exploited by the assholes of the world... just not for such universally beneficial reasons (see "The Dark Knight Returns")
SMBC *IS* an awesome comic, with a great superman as clean energy source story...AND a great Batman one: http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2308#comic
I actually 100% agree with this. I know that it's all fantasy, but if there were a real honest to goodness superman out there, and he decided to be a good guy, I think he would have a rather large chip on his shoulder. I think like a Hancock, but not an alcoholic.
Isn't this the entire premise that the TV series Smallville is based on?
Word, man! Word! :D
Superdickery.com has proven long ago that Superman in fact isn't very nice at all. Nothing brings him more joy than screwing over Jimmy Olsen.
