->''It's about heroes and villains in their everyday lives. Really, that's it.''
-->-- '''Randy Milholland'''

''[[http://www.superstupor.com/ Super Stupor]]'' is a 2008 {{Webcomic|s}} written and drawn by Randy Milholland of ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' fame. It's about super heroes and villains. They don't stop or cause crime, at least during their screen time. This is a SoapOpera, not an adventure.

The story is widely spread because there are LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. At some point in the past there was a Cosmic Cataclysm, which merged two realities and started a few of the storylines. Some of their stories are serious, some not. It's dark enough to be interesting and funny enough to avoid {{Narm}}. In other words, it's pretty damn good.

!!''Super Stupor'' contains examples of:

* AchillesHeel: Parodied, of course.
-->'''GrimReaper:''' Your enemy learned your one true weakness: [[StuffBlowingUp Blowing up.]]
* AliensMadeThemDoIt: Diamondback and her nemesis had sex because of [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust01022008.shtml extra-dimensional imps]]! They always force people to do stuff, and [[DatingCatwoman why else would lifelong enemies...]]
* BadSanta: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust12242008.shtml Here]].
* BiggerBad: Diamonback is the chief villain in the online strips, but even she reports to someone: Lady Armageddon, who only features in the physical comics.
* BlessedWithSuck: Magic Eye's power of [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust11262007.shtml extracting truth from people]] [[spoiler:only works when his penis is inside them, so he can't actually use it except in dire emergencies or if the victim consents. ("You'd be unpleasantly surprised who does.")]]
** M.E. found out that he ''had'' this power in what his partner dubs "The best divorce story ever!"
* BoobsAndButtPose: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust01252012.shtml Parodied]]. ("That pose offends me both as a woman and as someone who knows how spines work.")
* CosmicRetcon
** Time Peace's main ability. He primarily uses it to RetGone people.
** Also, allusions to the Cosmic Cataclysm, an event that destroyed multiple alternate universes and rewrote reality in others. For example, Rumble Bee is a survivor originally from a version of Earth that got destroyed, so reality "rewrote" her as having been from this one, complete with new family. [[RippleEffectProofMemory She can remember her old life too]], though.
* CrazyPrepared: Punchline, demonstrated in [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust12282010.shtml a strip,]] is shown to have puppets of another superhero, that he can produce (from HammerSpace, probably) and manipulate with his feet just in case his hands are bound.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Punchline, in [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust12282010.shtml the same comic]], explains to [[ArchEnemy The Anarch]] that [[NiceJobBreakingItHero forcing a superhero to kill his girlfriend]] isn't necessarily the smartest thing to do.
-->'''Punchline''': You're going to try to convince one of the strongest heroes in the galaxy that it's okay to take life... [[LetMeGetThisStraight by killing his girlfriend]]... while you're standling like ten feet away from him.
** For extra villain stupidity, the Cosmic Crusader appears to be Batman... with Superman's powers. Way to go, Anarch.
* DatingCatwoman: The Hero Formerly Known as Good Ol' Boy and Lady Diamondback.
* DeadpanSnarker: Punchline
* DeathIsCheap: The scene where the GrimReaper complains that {{Super Hero}}es come back from the dead so often that collecting them doesn't even count towards his quota is the page image.
* DeconstructorFleet: Of superhero tropes.
* DeliciousFruitPies: Deathmaw's WeaksauceWeakness... so much so that [[RealityEnsues he's developed diabetes from eating too many of them.]]
* DeusSexMachina: Magic Eye can compel anyone to tell the truth... but his penis has to be inside them or it doesn't work.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Jewish Rumble Bee has the bad luck to go on a date with someone who claims the CosmicRetcon that killed her mentor, a "documented event seen by billions," is a Zionist conspiracy.
* TheDogBitesBack
** An underpaid [[{{Mook}} henchman]] "forgets" to tell the BigBad that the KidHero Sola Flare [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust04092008.shtml is also capable of channeling the full power of the sun at will]].
** And then there's the glorious subversion of StuffedInTheFridge, where the intended victim trounces the villain and continues to make his life a living hell after he gets off with no jail time.
* EmoTeen: Time Peace/Clockstopper/[[AccidentalMisnaming Clockpuncher]]
* EvilPaysBetter: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust04222008.shtml Evil has better insurance]].
* ExpressiveMask
* FightsLikeANormal: Punchline, who reportedly has some kind of superpower, but mostly fights crime with toy-based gadgets.
* FoeYay: InUniverse. See AliensMadeThemDoIt.
* FriendlyEnemy: "[[http://www.superstupor.com/sust01042008.shtml Remember when we used to just beat the shit out of each other? I miss those days]]."
* FunTShirt: A Franchise/{{Godzilla}} {{Expy}} is wearing a huge shirt with a "I'm with trampled" text and several arrows pointing down.
* GenreSavvy: Pretty much everyone. [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust04092008.shtml Example.]]
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Time Peace
* HumanPopsicle: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust12212008.shtml The poor henchman.]]
* IntimidatingRevenueService: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust04162008.shtml They even intimidate heroes.]]
* JustAKid: LampshadeHanging with Sola Flare. "It's like the younger and cuter they are, the worse they're gonna kick your ass."
* KnightInSourArmor: Punchline. Despite his inappropriate sense of humor and snarky attitude, he is much more serious about his duties to society as a superhero than most "respectible" heroes. Perhaps best showcased when it is revealed he single-handedly watched the city during [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust11282009.shtml Thanksgiving Break]] (while the superheroes who only have powers on that day are going through a breakup).
* LittleMissBadass: {{Lampshaded}} with Sola Flare.
* LoonyFan: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust12232007.shtml The henchmman.]]
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust04072008.shtml This minion.]]
* RealityEnsues: There's several comics that expose the FridgeHorror that some of the sillier moments of comic history could mean for anyone actually living through them. There's the effect of continuity reboots, with a new super hero taking the place of the old one on a different Earth. And then there is the jab at the thinly-disguised advertisements were the heroes defeated the villains with real life products aimed at kids, such as a sugar-and-fat filled snack.
-->'''Boy-Toy:''' How many times are we gonna do this? You have an obsessive eating disorder cuz of those things. Yet you constantly put me in a position where I have to use them to stop you. It's stupid. And we both know about your diabetes which you aren't treating like you promised. Do you think I like having a hand in slowly killing you?
* SewerGator: The comic has Shockodile, a four-ton electricity-generating crocodile that lives in the sewers (but resents the implication that he eats children to live. [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust12282008.shtml He does, just not to live]]). Oh, [[CrapsackWorld and he's a hero.]]
* ShoutOut: To {{xkcd}}... [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust12222008.shtml XXXKCD]].
* SignedUpForTheDental: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust04222008.shtml The reason why former hero Eye-Score turned villain]]. Super-heroes are often uninsurable because of their risky lifestyle but villains are offered a discount since their activities help encourage the business of the insurance company. Well, that and [[TakeThat "Like watches over like"]].
* SophisticatedAsHell: Archangela
-->'''Archangela:''' [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust06132008.shtml Take thine critique and place it firmly up thine shitting place; for verily, yours is the glory of being adrift shit creek.]]
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[DefiedTrope Defied]] '''''[[http://www.superstupor.com/sust12272007.shtml like hell]]'''''. (And the story continued, with the villain being deathly afraid of her.)
* TakeThat
** "Make it fast. I've got [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife a full day of quoting from TVTropes]] [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust02132009.shtml instead of forming my own opinions.]]"
** Furthermore, the rest of that particular strip is a thinly veiled snipe at Joe Quesada's rationale for breaking up Spider-Man's marriage.
* UnhandThemVillain: "And nothing unhands you like a garbage disposal." [[SubvertedTrope Unusually]], it's the hero's girlfriend doing it to the villain.
* UnableToCry: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust01022009.shtml Short Fuse]]. Not because she doesn't want to, but because her latest doomsday device is triggered by saline.
* VillainsOutShopping: We rarely cut to the villains (or the heroes) in the process of actual villainy. And when they are actually battling, the battle is often a FunnyBackgroundEvent while they're discussing something else entirely.
* WhatTheHellHero
** From the GrimReaper, [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust05192008.shtml no less.]]
** Also seen in Super Stupor #2, the print comic, when [[spoiler:Punchline discovers that the reason his teammate, The Hero Formerly Known as Good Ol' Boy, failed to save a daycare center from being blown up was because he was having sex in a sleazy motel with his arch-enemy, Lady Diamondback.]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust01042008.shtml Deathmaw]] is an unstoppable killing machine, but will do anything for his favourite comfort food.
* WillNotBeAVictim: One of the best-known strips involves a hero's girlfriend beating up and ''[[UnhandThemVillain unhanding]]'' a villain who was attempting to have her StuffedIntoTheFridge.
