Here’s something that is just begging to be mocked:
UNITED NATIONS, Dec. 27 (UPI) — Marvel Comics and the United Nations are teaming up to create comic books to show superheroes working with the agency to rid the world of conflict and disease.
Yes, that’s right! Join the blue-helmeted stupor-heroes as they travel the world in Jimmy Carter’s peanut submarine, working tirelessly to keep their headquarters in steady cash-flow by helping good and evil find common ground, ways to compromise, and, most importantly, the checkbook so they can all pay their U.N. dues.
U.N. Stupor-heroes will probably include the following:
The Compact Fluorescent Flash
Iron Curtain Man
Batman and Robbin’ (convincingly portrayed by Kofi Annan and his son)
The Mighty Thor-azine
Captain Carbon Credit
The Green, Solar-Powered Lantern
And of course, The Human Torch — who came into existence as a result of global warming and is a member, along with Captain Carbon Credit, of the famed stupor-hero quartet, The Fantastic Gore. Travelling the world in his private, supersonic 727, The Human Torch battles gas-powered leaf blowers that are hell-bent on destroying the planet.
