I was going to ask, "Why?" But the answer is obviously "Why not?"

Manatee of manatees, saith the preacher, all is manatee.

Manatees are the Pugs of the sea.

Heh, like cjorgensen, I looked, then said "Of course."

I just sent Supermanatee to the folks working on Man of Steel, I doubt they'll make the change this late in the project, but Cavill isn't THAT good looking.

Anyone else suspect that the fastest manatee alive still isn't really all that fast?

The Silver Surfer would obviously need to be a Stellar Sea Cow.

Also DC? This is why red kryptonite exists.

"Oh no! Red kryptonite in the bottom of that lagoon! I wonder what freakish effect it will have on me this time?"

"That kelp... so appealing... I can't help myself from diving in and eating some!"

ZEE ZEE ZEE

Front cover: Lois Lane - "SOB! I can't believe my boyfriend is a SUPER-MANATEE!"

Now magining a special issue of whatever comic wherein we see events unfold in an alternate dimension where the world is run by intelligent manatees.

I would read that.

These were fantastic! Although I feel obliged to mention the Venture Brothers' Dr. Dugong.

It should be Martian-manatee Manhunter, actually.

Or, you know, Martian-manatee Manatee hunter, if you prefer...

In related news, Jason Viola is retiring his Herman the Manatee webcomic with a storyline in which he hasn't been hit by a boat in months.

It's kind of odd to see the Wonder Womanatee without the usual, um, sex appeal.

Unless, I guess, you'rea a manatee. Then I guess she's smokin' hot.

I want them as life-sized soft toys so much. (Except Aquamanatee should lose the blond toupee, he looks cute as he is!)

This is brilliant.
