Go To

Hover Head is a superhero webcomic on the Book Of PDR. It follows a superhero called Hover Head and his teammates on the Team of Superheroes. It can be found here. Hover Head, who is just that, a head that hovers, is joined on the super team by team-leader Unable-To-Fly Man, space adventurer Meteorface, elderly and superstrong Granny Muscles, explosion-creating Ka-Blewy, and Arms Man.

Hover Head provides examples of:


  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Unable-To-Fly Man has a "U" and Granny Muscles a "G".
  • The Cape: Unable-To-Fly Man dresses the part, but certainly isn't a Flying Brick if his name is accurate.
  • Chest Insignia: Apart from the letters mentioned above Ka-Blewy has a mushroom cloud. Arms Man has the word "arms" on his tank top.
  • Continuity Nod: There have been a few references to an earlier Book Of PDR comic Adventure Dennis.
  • Day in the Life: The first full-size story took this form.
  • Demonic Possession: Everyone but Hover Head is possessed in one story.
  • Disability Superpower: Hover Head is superhumanly durable, fast, and can fly. That said, he doesn't have hands. Arms Man, meanwhile, has no eyes, ears, or even nose, but gets around just fine.
  • Dumb Muscle: Hover Head himself has an element of this. His solution to any problem is brute force.

  • Hellhound: Damnation the Dalmatian.
  • Home Base: The Hover Headquarters is home to several members of the Team of Superheroes, and has their round table meeting room.

  • Raised by Wolves: One story features a man raised by gorillas who had been raised by wolves.
  • Rogues Gallery: Some villains, like Baron Jerk and Crooktopus, seem to be familiar foes of Hover Head.
  • Shower Scene: There's one in the second story, but it's Hover Head, so...
  • Superhero Trophy Shelf: They have one aboard the Hover Headquarters, though it looks small compared to some other examples.

  • Super Team: With the less than imaginative name "The Team of Superheroes".
  • Team Mom: Granny Muscles seems to fulfill this role.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Meteorface loses his powers every Friday the 13th.
  • World of Weirdness: The world of Hover Head is pretty strange, but even more so when you consider it seems to the same would as Adventure Dennis.
