[[caption-width-right:250:[[CatchPhrase Superman is a dick.]]]]

ComicBooks can be very, very strange sometimes. They can feature [[{{Superdickery}} the hero acting like a jerk for no reason]], [[HaveAGayOldTime endless sexual innuendo]], [[ValuesDissonance extremely racist propaganda]], [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkeys]], and [[MindScrew stuff that's just plain weird]].

Superdickery.com is a website dedicated to tracking down and documenting as many of these weird and wonderful comics as possible, often presenting them completely out of context, solely for the purposes of humour.

These comics are mostly from TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks (although there are quite a few from more recent eras) and mainly from {{Creator/DC Comics}}, due to the many, ''many'' instances of Franchise/{{Superman}} acting [[{{Superdickery}} like a complete dick]].

These are split into several categories:
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/superman-is-a-dick/ Examples Of Superdickery]]: ''Home of the phrase that started it all, "Superman is a dick." Witness an ever growing selection of examples of Superman acting like... well, a dick.''
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/confounding-comic-covers/ Confounding Covers]]: ''[[ContemptibleCover Comic book covers that are so out there, so random, and so bizarre]] that you'll be wondering how on earth they ever got published in the first place.''
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/frames-and-pages/ Frames and Pages]]: ''This section contains scans of individual panels and frames from the interiors of comic books, completely devoid of context.''
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/everythings-better-with-monkeys/ Everything's Better With Monkeys]]: ''Gorillas provided a guaranteed boosts to circulation with every cover appearance. Do not argue with the mesmerizing powers of gorillas. And yes, I know gorillas aren't monkeys.''
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/seduction-of-the-innocent/ Seduction of the Innocent]]: ''Covers and frames from a more innocent time, a time ignorant of how friggin' hilarious these would be to future audiences. [[AccidentalInnuendo If it's inappropriate sexual innuendo]], it's in here. Most of the frames and panels are from Batman comics, depicting Batman as a closet pedophile who sexually abuses his young ward, Robin''[[invoked]]
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/weird-science/ Weird Science]]: ''Gadgets and gizmos and doodads, oh my! A section devoted to everything from the Helmet of Hate to the Man with the Electronic Brain.''
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/suffering-sappho/ Suffering Sappho!]]: ''"Hi, you've reached Franchise/WonderWoman. I'm sorry I can't come to the phone right now - [[BadassInDistress I'm all tied up.]]" You'd think she'd leave that rope at home, seeing how often she gets tied up with it...''
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/propaganda-extravaganza/ Propaganda Extravaganza]]: ''Home of [[UnfortunateImplications the most astoundingly politically incorrect covers]] you've ever seen (the vast majority being from the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]], [[WartimeCartoon during World War Two]]), plus some more modern day examples of propaganda.''[[invoked]]
* [[http://www.superdickery.com/tag/stupor-powers/ Stupor Powers]]: ''Witness the demonstration of [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway superpowers you've never even dreamed of]], such as SUPER-WEAVING! [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=36&Itemid=53&limitstart=4 Yes. Super-Weaving]]''.

*** ...so you can see where they're coming from.
** Also, {{Franchise/Batman}} is a dangerously repressed closet pedophile who sexually abuses Robin.
*** The funny thing is that in spite of how blatantly homoerotic many of the images with Batman are, the caption-writer keeps making very lame attempts at denying that whatever makes Batman gay.
** And Franchise/WonderWoman is a BDSM-obsessed sex freak who is way, way, ''way'' TooKinkyToTorture.
*** Given [[AuthorAppeal the creator]], [[WordOfGod this is probably true]]. DC is lucky he didn't include polygamy as one of Wonder Woman's traits, though, given Paradise Island, you never know...
* AscendedMeme: The premiere of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'''s third season is a tribute to the website. It recreates some of the more famous Superman comic covers featured on the site, as well as referencing Lois and Jimmy's attempts to marry Superman or learn his secret identity, respectively. The site's name even gets a ShoutOut:
-->'''Jimmy''': "Superman's turned into a real [[CurseCutShort di-]]"\\
'''Lois''': "-fferent person."
* AttractiveBentGender: "The worst thing [[http://www.superdickery.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/jolsen_159_04.jpg about this page]] is that Jimmy makes a pretty hot woman."
* BewareTheSuperman: Given the number of times he's accidentally or purposefully destroyed buildings/cities/nations/planets....
* BoobsAndButtPose: [[http://www.superdickery.com/2014/12/page/12/ the impossible neck!]]
* ButtMonkey: A good amount of Superman's Superdickery involves screwing around with ComicBook/JimmyOlsen.
* CaptainObvious: Any time the evilness of Superman is note on a comic book cover, the bottom note regards it as this trope.
* CasualKink: [[ComicBook/{{Spiderman}} Peter Parker]] has some [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=30%3Aframes-and-panels-index&id=1337%3Ahow-does-one-classify-bondage-comics-without-wonder-woman&Itemid=24 interesting ideas for how to use his webbing]] with Mary-Jane.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: The captions sometimes do this, pointing out some random detail in the pictures.
* CringeComedy: Saying everyone hates their parents when they're 18? Hyperbolic, but ring of truth. [[http://www.superdickery.com/everyone-hates-their-parents-when-theyre-eighteen/ Saying it to]] ''[[DeathByOriginStory Batman]]''? Awkwardly hilarious.
* CriticalResearchFailure[=/=]WritersCannotDoMath: [[invoked]] [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=36&Itemid=53&limitstart=1 You're off by a factor of ten there, Supes...]]
* CrossesTheLineTwice: [[http://www.superdickery.com/2014/12/page/14/ "You secretly think a crippled [man] being pushed down the stairs is hilarious. Go ahead and laugh at it, I won't tell..."]] [[invoked]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: The image above. Since you can't read what Lois is saying there, look at the same image, in a bigger size, [[http://superdickery.tumblr.com/post/9385073279/general-consensus-is-that-this-is-the-best-of-the here]]. Not the only example, by the way.
* DrinkingGame: Every time you see Jimmy Olsen with superpowers, [[RunningGag take a shot]]. [[spoiler:If you get reminded to take a shot and you forgot you were playing the game, that's a penalty shot.]] [[invoked]]
** Be careful, one of the covers is a four shot winner.
*** To say nothing, of course, of the cover featuring [[spoiler:the Planet of ''a Thousand'' Jimmy Olsons]].
* EnsembleDarkhorse: InUniverse. Superman's Pope Hat and the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Time Traveling Popemobile Go-Kart]].
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: {{Invoked}} in [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=34%3Asuffering-sappho-index&id=1322%3Awhats-better-than-wonder-woman-in-chains-naked-wonder-woman-in-chains&Itemid=39 this commentary]].

** Also [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=32&Itemid=50&limitstart=57 when it involves "an 8-foot long prehensile penis"]].

* [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday Have I Mentioned Batman Is Heterosexual Today]]
* HetIsEw: [[http://superdickery.tumblr.com/post/40531440458/comicbookcovers-detective-comics-380-october Invoked by the commentator]] on a cover in which Batman and Robin witness a SexyDiscretionShot.
* IfICantHaveYou: Superman to Lois Lane. The picture above explains it all.
* ImplausibleDeniability: What the RunningGag of "Batman's not gay!" comes across as.
* InTheBlood: One cover gives insight into Superman's behavior: ''Jor-El'' is a dick.
** Some covers even imply ''Supergirl'' to be one, mostly towards her cousin.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: The creator of the site acknowledges that most of the examples likely make sense in context (probably because it ''is'' the [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks SILVER AGE]] we're dealing with), but it's simply [[RuleOfFunny funnier this way]].
** For example, that panel showing Superman with Super-Weaving? [[spoiler:That's actually Van-Zee, a Krytonian from Kandor who happens to have an UncannyFamilyResemblance to Superman. The story deliberately plays with the reader's expectations by not having anything from characters to the narration refer to him or Silvia Dewitt -- an IdenticalStranger of Lois Lane -- by their actual names until TheReveal (even skipping over certain scenes that easily give away the surprise, then showing them once the twist is executed). So technically, Superman himself doesn't actually have Super-Weaving powers. That we know of]].
** [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=28%3Asuperdickery&id=167%3Asuperman-threatening-wonder-girl&Itemid=54 There was a similar case]] when Superboy threatened to ''rape'' Wonder Girl: [[spoiler: it was an ugly alien disguising itself as him. That's about it. Still a threat of rape.]]
** There are a couple of cases where the site's creator is familiar with the context, but says [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext it doesn't make sense anyway.]]
* JapaneseRanguage: The trope naming image is [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=30&Itemid=48&limitstart=62 here]].
* {{Jerkass}}: Superman, but (less frequently) Batman, Jimmy, Lois... [[CrapsackWorld pretty much everybody]].
* KickTheDog: Superman just won't let Jimmy Olsen have a nice day, will he?
* LetsYouAndHimFight: [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=28&Itemid=45&limitstart=59 A rare example of heroes doing this to villains.]]
* {{MST}}: The uploaders provide various witty comments and snarks on the pictures uploaded adding to the hilarity of it all. They're also the origin of the site's various running gags, in-jokes, and alternative interpretations.
* NiceHat: [[http://www.superdickery.com/king-superman-2/ Superman's "pope" hat]], which seems to be [[EnsembleDarkHorse a personal favorite]] to the website's creator, as he [[RunningGag constantly laments]] that [[OneSceneWonder it only appeared once]].
* NonindicativeName: [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=33&Itemid=52&limitstart=16 For some reason Jimmy Olsen has a "fountain pen gun" that the narrator explicitly says is neither a fountain pen nor a gun]]. It shoots compressed air instead of a bullet (however that works) and merely looks like a pen.
* NoodleImplements: [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=30&Itemid=48&limitstart=68 What I need now is a dime -- some red nail polish -- and a little talk with the island gossip!]]
* NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat: Said word for word [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=32%3Aseduction-index&id=340%3Abatmans-doing-his-best-to-sound-gay&Itemid=36 here]].
* PerverseSexualLust: Forum user [[AwesomeMcCoolname Rad McAwesome]] has an obsession over [[FanNickname Thriftie]], the SuperStoicShopkeeper from ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]''. He even [[http://editthis.info/Superdickery/Thriftie#Origin_Story wrote a backstory for her]] and had a RuleThirtyFour website draw her naked.
* PoesLaw: [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=35&Itemid=49&limitstart=85 "Yes, it's a spoof on Golden Age comic conventions, but it nails them so totally that if I hadn't been told it was a spoof, I might not have been able to tell..."]]
* RuleOfFunny: We all know that (most) of these covers and panels make sense in context. It's simply far more funny to take them all at face value
* RunningGag: Several types of covers crop up [[FleetingDemographicRule a statistically alarming number of times]]. There's a few in the commentary as well, particularly, "[[HoYay Batman's not gay!]]"
* SmugSnake: See: {{Jerkass}}.
* TooDumbToLive: [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=30%3Aframes-and-panels-index&id=793%3Asuperboy-is-a-colossal-dumbass&Itemid=34 Superboy is a colossal dumbass]].
* UrExample: [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=28&Itemid=45&limitstart=85 Here]]
* TransparentCloset: A running gag is that Batman constantly denies being gay despite the ''massive'' pile of evidence saying he is.
* ValuesDissonance: Most of the Wartime propaganda featured is ''astonishingly'' racist by today's standards. [[invoked]]
** There's a good amount of misogyny flying around too.
* VerySpecialEpisode: Mocked in the infamous Franchise/GreenLantern / GreenArrow crossover, which shows Green Arrow's apprentice, Speedy, caught shooting up heroin:
-->''"You nicknamed him [[UnfortunateName Speedy]]. What did you expect?!"''
* VillainProtagonist: Superman is interpreted as this.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Many of the Stupor Powers are of this variety.
* WouldHitAGirl: It's even [[http://superdickery.tumblr.com/image/41467523106 contemplated by Superman]] before he plays it straight.
* XCalledTheyWantTheirYBack: [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=850:bucky-strapped-to-a-bomb&catid=35:propaganda-index&Itemid=35 Bucky, Wonder Woman called. She wants her cover back.]]
