The thread for dumb superhero ideas:

Blurrggghh.
The Sodomy-Punishes the criminals with the power that destroyed two cities!

Aggressively Apathetic
The Human Book! He has the amazing power of turning into a DoorStopper and thus bore his enemies to death.
Pray tell, what school of trangression is this?

YEEEEAH— no.
I once thought of an idea for a minor villain with the power to manifest as two people at the same time. He takes up politics, poses as two (equally corrupt) Strawmen Political, and campaigns against himself every election year. Still haven't figured out why, but right now I'm going with "for petty amusement".

How dumb are we talking?

Straight-up dumb or the stupidly funny kind of dumb?

I love Blueeyedrat's idea. That's brilliant.

[up] There appear to be both in the thread so far, so just do what you want.

So awesome, it hurts!
Follicle, the superhero with huge shoulder pads and a gigantic gun that, when fired, makes his opponents grow hair at the point of impact. However, it only works on parts of the body that can grow hair.

You avoided the last two pages... so you could hit on my sandwich.- Slendid Suit
Paperclip man! With the power over paperclips!

His rogue gallery would include other office themed super villains, with the big bad being super corporate man or something along that line.

Beware The Decimator! He can only ever destroy 10% of a city.

Paisley Man. He possesses the ability to only get into fights he can win, to bluff his opponents into surrendering when he can't win, and to run away from opponents can't bluff.

YEEEEAH— no.
@Sapphire Blue: posted it nearly a year ago, but I'm glad you like it! Here are a couple of other ones I thought up just now.

- A guy who can teleport, but only in one direction: up. He can take things with him, which can be useful for dropping stuff, but he has to carry a parachute wherever he goes.
- A man who can enrage anyone by messaging them over the internet. He's actually a really nice guy, but he must masquerade as a common troll to hide his terrifying power.

Bootleg Man: the superhero with the ability to copy the powers of any superhero... to dubious results.

I'm intrigued.

How about The Off Button? His power is turning off other superpeoples' powers. This makes him very lonely and sad, for he can not hang out with the superheroes during their missions, but can foil the villains pretty well.

 47 Haldo, Sun, 30th Sep '12 9:17:36 AM from Never never land Relationship Status: Coming soon to theaters
Indecisive pumpkin
Stinkbug man, with the ability to run very slowly and smell like cilantro when disturbed.

The Great One
The Unamazing Doctor Schlemiel and his sidekick Professor Schlamazel. On their first day being superheroes they went to a fancy restaurant and Doctor Schlemiel spilled soup in Professor Schlamazel's lap. Then he got up and walked to get some towels but he had also tucked in the table cloth to use as a bib and thus spilled everything else on the table and broke several dishes.

Brutal Honesty served up daily.
 49 Big Red Troper, Sat, 5th Oct '13 2:34:00 PM from your most happiest imagination
MASTER OF BIG RED
Open Man: A man with the power to open anything with his MIND! He is sort of useful, since he can open locked or taped-shut containers, but the Team of Supers only use him as a last resort.

I had another idea for a superhero, but I thought his power sounded too... clever and useful. If you still want to here it then tell me.
