Super Ripoff

Being a masked vigilante may sound cool, but it comes with a lot of problems.

Heh, I thought the title refer to the superhero "Mega Man".

Also second heh, the store guy could of just written of that kik kat as "damaged stock" so it would of been a win win.

How dare you imply that honest shopkeep would be dishonest in his record-keeping or taxes? He's a hardworking father of two who built a life for himself, and he doesn't need freeloading 'heroes' or rich horse DJs implying he would bend the rules.

OT: Thug unions are actually surprisingly powerful. I hear Hydra has a whole section of their Financial Crimes department working on ways to circumvent 401ks.

Thanks LRR. You guys always make me smile. :)

This video reminds me of a bunch of similar comic strips I wrote back in the 90s. Lampooning superhero tropes is just always a good time.

It's the A.I.M. thugs union you gotta watch out for. They hack your personal data through blue tooth enabled nanites that transmit over the wi-fi signals in your house!!! And their leader is a giant head, which is always scary. :P

So, all you need for a costume is regular Skeeing gear, huh?
I can see why, he's too poor to afford a sweet ass cape... :'(

Ah Mega-Man, we've missed you

Nicely written Alex! The dialogue in this episode was top notch. Keep them coming.
Graham. Harumph. Who needs him?

Let me tell you that being an upper management Super Villain isn't all it's cracked up to be. The entry level thugs have Mega Man to contend with, you know who we get? Man-gods who can punch the moon out of orbit.

So what's the union for super-villains? The Guild of Calamitous Intent? AFAIK, none of the members in their Council of 13 are immortal.

This is the funniest series on The Escapist.
