''Save the Supers'' is a web series by Sandeep Parikh (of ''TheGuild'' and ''TheLegendOfNeil'' fame) about a group of dysfunctional superheroes oddly reminiscent of the JusticeLeague. Unfortunately, except for OnlySaneMan Merman (Parikh), they're overzealous in their use of force, frequently killing supervillains and destroying property. This, combined with budget cuts, puts the team in peril of having to dissolve, and Merman in the difficult position of having to fire one of his teammates in order to balance the budget...

Episode 1 can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_58877&feature=iv&list=PL7EE85ADDBEAE26C9&src_vid=wUSRYaQDy1Y&v=wYvc6E-Wjbo here]].

Relevant tropes:
* AffablyEvil: Panthera seems to enjoy making exact duplicates of art as much as she does stealing them
** The Bombadier is a partially reformed MadBomber. Now he only plants "fun" bombs! (i.e. ones filled with confetti)
* TheAlcoholic: Morphman. [[spoiler:it eventually gets him fired.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Merman. He's played by Sandeep Parikh, it comes with the territory.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler: World Man in the Season 1 finale]].
* TheCameo: Tay Zonday (the "Chocolate Rain Guy") appears in episode 1 and narrates Fleet Foot's One Shot.
** FeliciaDay portrayed Panthera, a Catwoman expy in episode 3.
** Creator/SethGreen guest starred as DJ Death.
* {{Expy}}: The whole team is basically the JusticeLeague with the {{serial numbers filed off}}:
** Merman is ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}.
** World Man is {{Superman}}.
** Elementra is WonderWoman.
** Fleet Foot is TheFlash.
** Morph Man is ComicBook/PlasticMan.
** Night Knight strays the farthest from his source material, but is Franchise/{{Batman}} (a "Dark Knight" who's a GadgeteerGenius) if Batman were a crazy homeless guy.
** The first episode featured the Jokester, a Joker Expy, and the third featured Panthera, a Catwoman Expy.
* GadgeteerGenius: Night Knight
* HoYay: Night Knight and General Underwood. Night Knight likes his CrazyPrepared tendencies. The General has no idea what's up with Night Knight.
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn: Fleet Foot has a past as supervillain Speed Demon. He has a family now]].
* IncrediblyLamePun: Panthera constantly spews out cat-related puns, much to the annoyance of Elementra. Also, the names of the supervillians in the opening credits sequence
* MAdBomber: The Bombadier, a partially reformed version of this trope. He still plants bombs, but this time they're only filled with confetti.
* MadScientist: Also Night Knight, obsessed with creating a Super Baby from his teammates' DNA.
* Really700YearsOld: Elementra
* ShoutOut: Night Knight's One Shot is a parody of the infamous audio recording of Christian Bale yelling at a lighting guy on the set of ''Film/TheDarkKnight''.
* WhatTheHellHero: Merman gives this speech to his teammates when they kill the Jokester in episode 1.
