->''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.

In addition to the mostly stand-alone strips, Milholland has also produced four print-only story comics detailing the lives and adventures of the characters further.

!!''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]]
* EvilLawyerJoke: Why do villains have better coverage by Insurers? Because "like protects like".
* 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.]]
* PowerPerversionPotential: Inverted and deconstructed - Magic Eye can force anyone to tell him the truth... but it only works while his penis is inside the target/victim. He's deeply disturbed since to use that power on an uncooperative target would require him to ''rape'' them, but also due to the number of people who ''would'' willingly submit to it. Also, his marriage broke up because he discovered this power accidentally.
* 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.
* YearsTooEarly: Lady Diamondback is dismissive when the Snow Owl invades her lair:
-->"I'm a little out of your league, kid. Find a nice {{starter villain}}. Y'know, drug dealers, [[DirtyCop crooked cops]].
