Characters in the website documenting the trope:

Superman

The Last Son of Krypton, who uses most of his time and incredible powers to be a total dick to everyone.

Jimmy Olsen

Supposedly 'Superman's Pal', but in reality it's more like 'Superman's Favorite Victim'. Usually he's a normal human, but he definitely has a tendency to attract strange, temporary superpowers.

Batman

The Caped Crusader, fellow hero to Superman and also a dick. He is totally not in a gay relationship with Robin.

  • Ambiguously Gay: The website keeps trying to claim that he's not gay, dammit, but the evidence winds up damning him to the point that the commentator can't even form a defense.
  • Asshole Victim: The times Superman has killed him/exposed his identity.
  • Depending on the Writer: He's either a victim of Superman's dickery, attempting to stop Superman, or sometimes teaming up with him for "double dickery".

Lois Lane

A reporter obsessed with Superman (who, naturally, is a dick to her). A lot of other people are equally obsessed with making her a Damsel in Distress.

  • And Now You Must Marry Me: Said by her to Superman, or by someone else to her. Including two months in a row for the latter.
  • Asshole Victim: She gets hurt a lot, but the lengths she's gone to to get Superman's identity/force him to marry her make it hard to feel sorry for her.
  • Butt-Monkey: Keeps getting killed by Superman. It's even the page picture.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: See above.
  • What Does She See in Him?: You really have to wonder why Lois is so obsessed with Superman despite all the terrible things he's done to her.

Supergirl

Superman's cousin and equal in dickery.

Wonder Woman

Amazon warrior who gets tied up a lot, not that she really minds.

Robin

Batman's sidekick. Totally not also his boyfriend.

  • Ambiguously Gay
  • Butt-Monkey: Often the victim of mean pranks courtesy of Superman and Batman.
  • Distressed Damsel: This most famously occurred when Green Lantern, Flash, Atom and Batman were all worried about their wives... all, that is, except for Batman, who expressed his fear for Robin in the same tone.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: It seems Mr Wayne goes through orphans faster than most of us go through out shoes. Notably Batman's reaction to finding Robin's hanging corpse is "Oh no, not again!".

Clark Kent

Superman's civilian identity. Superman is a dick to him too, however that's supposed to work.

The Kents

Clark's adoptive parents. They appear in the 'Superbaby' comics, where they really don't want anyone to know that Clark has super powers.

  • Skewed Priorities: They're more worried about people finding out about Clark's abilities than the havoc he's wreaking.

Lex Luthor

Superman's arch-enemy, who really ought to be counting his lucky stars that he's survived so many of Superman's dickish antics.

  • Asshole Victim: Superman let him get shot in the gut as punishment for stealing cakes.
  • Evil Is Petty: The site really plays up how Luthor's hatred of Superman stemmed from the incident where he lost his hair.

The Joker

Batman's nemesis, who has a weird fixation with the word "boner."

  • Ambiguously Gay: The site implies him as this, particularly with his aforementioned fixation on the word "boner."

The Flash

The Fastest Man Alive, he appears in frequent covers on the website in...less-than-desirable situations. Also in a forbidden relationship with his nephew-by-marriage Wally.
