    Awwww, what a nice friendship. I still think robots will doom this, but what a nice friendship.

    And thus is revealed the ugly truth about the vast majority of super hero names. “The bad guys asked who was kicking their asses, and I had to come up with something on the spot!”

    Although, Paladin’s origin is more unique. We haven’t had to name a lot of new super heroes since the internet became a thing. Seems like the “online user ID as super name” pattern could become a lot more common as time goes on.

      Dr. Cockroach PhD. “Might we ask for your name, madam?”
      Ginormica “Susan.”
      B.O.B. “No, we mean like your monster name. You know, what do people scream when they see you coming? Like “Look out! Here comes…?””
      Ginormica “Susan.”
      Dr. Cockroach PhD. “Really?”
      B.O.B. [spookily] “SUUUUSSAAANN! Ooh, I just scared myself! That IS scary!”

    Heh. Capecakes.

    I’m easily amused. Heh.

    • John Smith

      Likewise. Heh.

      Why I imagine their cupcakes as having glazing falling over to the cakes’ side so it looks like actual cape? And probably a selection of specially flavoured cakes themed around popular superheroes, which can be bought in sets based on teams said heroes are/were in.

      • Owen Lewis

        Someone needs to make that idea an actual thing, based off of the DC and Marvel characters, and maybe some of the SFP characters.

      • Pol Subanajouy

        Man, I am so hungry for cupcakes now.

    As long as she doesn’t throw the larger robots at any hospitals, she’ll be fine. Well, a few were built/rebuilt to be thrown robot resistant, but not all of them.

    Also, if she uses any of my breaks any of my construction equipment, insurance will cover it. I do expect her to pay the deductible though.

      Simple proof that the most heroic thing you can do is retrofit your local hospital.

      • Insanenoodlyguy

        But who will staff that hospital? Death robots, that’s who. They’ll call themselves “Humor Robots” mind you.

        “That saline solution is in fact mercury!”


  • Well, shoot. Now Y’all know my superhero name…

    • Ryan Thompson

      Playing with meters beyond mortal comprehension, he drew an iambic pentagram in red ink and spoke the ten alternately-stressed syllables of power…

      I think this could be a fun game: “Superhero origin story for online handle”.

    …Capecakes 😀

  • Well, that’s about pitch perfect for a Brooklyn bakery in a superhero universe.
