Heroic Computer Problems

This is the real reason superheros prefer to punch things.

I always wondered why the computers that superheros used, were so big, or seemed to be controlled just by a few large buttons.
To see what I mean , take a look at this pic of the Superfriends and their computer in the Hall of Justice.

Superfriends Computer

That thing is MASSIVE, and has very little in the way of a keyboard or mouse that would require them to touch it.
And looking at the picture, you can see how the are all too scared to even really approach it.

So, I am now convinced that this is one of the major causes of Superhero violence in the Marvel & DC universes.
Sure, it is great having powers and super strength. But if you could not play WOW, or tweet, or facebook, or surf for porn, whatever, then how would you feel?

I bet you would soon want to hit someone.
Really really hard.

Superpowered folk are not really fans of violence – they just really want to be able to play flash games & poke their friends on facebook like everyone else.

I think there is something in that for all of us, don’t you?

UPDATE: In response to this comic, to valiant twitterers have joined in the fun and linked me to their comics, which also make fun of Superheroes and computers. These are great and I thank them both very much!

First, relax & enjoy the classic intro to the Superfriends cartoon.


Also, take a look at this video, which shows just how scared Superheros are of computers!
Does this count as proof??




This is great. Don’t forget Wonder woman’s is invisible so she is always losing hers. Superman taps the keys too hard, Aquaman gets his wet….

– Batmans laptop only has the keys B, A & T.
– Black Bolt’s is voice activated
– Iceman’s computer keeps freezing
– Charles Xavier’s laptop got put away on a high shelf
– Kitty Pride keeps phasing through hers
– Cyclop’s got a new security feature, that requires an iris scan
– Ant-Man’s computer got a bug…………………………..

Inilah Mengapa “Superhero” Jarang Online…

Inilah alasan mengapa superhero jarang online: Netbook terlalu kecil untuk Hulk Keyboard tidak cocok untuk jari Spidey Laptop tidak anti terhadap Human Torch Laptop juga tidak anti gores terhadap Wolverine Via Agent-X Comics……
