1) look closer, there's a gun in his pants and blood on his fingers 2) only male superdead would unable to have sex, since no blood flow means no erection. it's also possible the suit helps preserve her

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: InUniverse: One of the meta-textual breaks in volume 1 has Emp worried that the comic's manga-styled artwork will turn off the superhero fans who despise manga, but that manga readers won't like the book's focus on superheroes.

* TheMerch: In-story, there are official Superhomey ringtones and themed T-shirts, plus action figures of their Rogues' Gallery. Not to mention the Capitan Rivet panties Emp often wears when out of uniform.

If you mean Thugboy holding that spikey helmet while talking to Emp on the phone, wasn't he just pulling that out of hock to eBay? And I think Emp being superdead is jossed since the superdead can't have sex (guys can't get it up, so presumably women can't display any signs of feminine arousal either).

* The first major example came in volume 1 when the chapter 'Witless Minions' (where Thugboy is forced to wear the 'Spartan 3000' outfit) is followed by the chapter [[KnightOfCerebus 'Willy Pete']] (where we get the details on [[NightmareFuel exactly WHY Thugboy is the last of the Witless Minions]]).

* MrFanservice: [=ThugBoy=] is a shining example, albeit possibly a spectacularly misplaced one.

** The vast majority of superheroes are assholes, and while most villains abide by the "unwritten rules" and are up to mostly SilverAge level antics, there are four villains (in only six volumes) who have the power to be a ''very'' real threat. The "kindest" of those villains "only" rapes people to death. [[AndIMustScream The rest are worse.]]
