Youtube is full of new and exciting (and entertaining) content these days, and one of the several web-shows I follow is UNDERBELLY. They cover everything in pop culture, from movies, to comic books, to video games, and they do it with their tongues firmly in cheek. Their latest video picks out numerous comic book heroes that are for the most part, just plain stupid.
There's MATTER-EATING LAD (he can eat through anything), EXTRANO (gay Mexican magician who battles THE HEMO-GOBLIN, a vampire that spreads A.I.D.S. to minorities), SQUIRREL GIRL, and several other bargain basement/bad idea superheroes. (Although, I have to admit that MAN-THING does not belong on the list. Although his name is highly suggestive and he's been eclipsed by DC's Swamp Thing, he has been getting plenty of action lately in Marvel's THUNDERBOLTS series.)
Without further ado, here is the latest Underbelly episode that is kicking off their month-long celebration of superheroes:
