''[[http://superherogirladventures.blogspot.com/ The Adventures of Superhero Girl]]'' is a webcomic by Faith Erin Hicks, who previously created ''Webcomic/{{Demonology 101}}''.

Superhero Girl (or S.H.G) tries her best to do good but is often overshadowed by her older brother, Kevin, who is more popular and gets lots of money though sponsorship.

!!This webcomic contains example of
* AtArmsLength: When did freakishly long arms become your super power? ([[http://superherogirladventures.blogspot.co.uk/2011/06/superhero-girl-66.html here]])
* CanadaEh: Set in Halifax as a lot of Hicks' stuff is, and in one early strip SHG bemoans the lack of supervillains in Canada
* ClarkKenting: Parodied with Spectacle. She's a ''reverse'' Clark Kent -- she wears glasses as part of her superhero costume, and takes them off in her civilian identity.
* ClothesMakeTheLegend: Averted, S.H.G. has been through plenty of costume changes in her life.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The heroine's real name has never been revealed. She's only ever referred to as "Superhero Girl". Her roommate is also as yet unnamed.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: Parodied; S.H.G has a bad hair day and wears a hoodie, noting that it makes her look like a Sith Lord. Suddenly everybody thinks she's evil. [[spoiler: But not for that reason, as it turned out.]]
* EyeBeams: S.H.G has them; Kevin apparently doesn't.
* FlyingBrick: Kevin, Spectacle and S.H.G (minus the flying part).
* [[spoiler:FutureMeScaresMe]]
* HighlyVisibleNinja: [[http://superherogirladventures.blogspot.co.uk/2011/01/superhero-girl-26.html You bump into them at the supermarket sometimes.]]
* JerkAss: Skeptical Guy, although he's more annoying than assholeish-- he just refuses to believe that SHG is a ''real'' superhero
* [[MostDefinitelyNotAVillain Most Definitely Not a Superhero]]: S.H.G sometimes resorts to this. Unfortunately, the first time she tries this [[IdiotBall she forgot to take her mask off]]
* NeverMessWithGranny: A reoccuring background character who also happens to be an elderly lady manages to take out a rampaging bear, causing S.H.G's roommate [[ItMakesSenseInContext (who's filling in for her at the time)]] to question why the city even needs a superhero.
* {{Ninja}}: Lots of them as generic mooks.
* NotQuiteFlight: S.H.G cannot fly, but she can [[InASingleBound jump over 'any building under 11 stories'.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Superhero Girl "It's what everybody calls me"
* ShrinkRay: [[http://superherogirladventures.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/superhero-girl-39.html here]]
* SecretIdentity: S.H.G doesn't do a very good job at it but she's getting better!
* StockSuperheroDayJobs: Several kinds, S.H.G is a freelance bum, Kevin is a career superhero and Spectacle is a rich socialite with too much time on her hands.
* SuperHeroOrigin: Subverted, S.H.G doesn't have a horrible back story for why she became a superhero and some of the local citizens think this doesn't make her a real hero.
* SuperStrength: Part of S.H.G's powers
* VillainsOutShopping: [[http://superherogirladventures.blogspot.com/2011_01_01_archive.html Done literally]]
