Heh.

Well I liked it.

Completely unfunny...until I realized you have to start at the bottom and that each character defeats the previous one. Still not that funny, but at least it's somewhat clever.

Yeah, it really makes more sense when you start from the bottom.

Awesome. Totally wish I could draw.

Is the word "vanquished" with an arrow pointing down, and the previous hero really that confusing? I do agree that presenting it in the other order would make more sense, but I guess this way the newest character is always at the top. I also wish I could draw.

I liked it. I started at the bottom as previously mentioned. I agree with the clever comment.

Not confusing at all, once you realize what's going on. But I didn't even look over at "that navigation stuff", I just scrolled down the page. Single panel cartoons are fairly common on the internets I frequent, I didn't know I'd need a primer.

The typo in this FPP would actually make a great superhero name. He consumes everything and makes other people's powers his own, like an evergrowing circle in a venn diagram.

Uh, the site is "The Superest", not "Superset"...

I like to misspell stuff in my FPP, it keeps people on their toes.
posted by chunking express at 11:53 AM on October 23, 2007


Yeah, I had no idea the page was sorted in defeating order.

{x : 0<Re(x)<&frac12; and &zeta(x)=0} is a pretty super set. Maybe.

Ah, it is pretty funny if you read it properly.

The Ringleader is my favorite. It makes me sad thinking about all those joyless clowns...

Very funny and cute. A pretty cool concept.

Adorable.

Cool. This looks like a fun game to play.

Funny! It's a competetive "eat poop you cat", kind of game. For super-heroes!

I also wish I could draw. :(

I like it. Took me a while to figure out that they were linked - then I saw that clown business and it all made sense.

My favourite set.

Completely devoid of hair... and Fear!

Curses! They've discovered my secret identity!

I prefer this game when played with actual fictional superheroes. That way you don't have to know how to draw.

Goddamn. Kevin has lettering skills, and I have a crush.

I too, am annoyed that this FPP does not involve superhero set theory.

blasdelf, your super set is a set containing the empty set? Deep.

chunking express, blasdelf was showing us the set of things that can defeat Batman.
posted by cortex at 8:02 AM on October 25, 2007


That doesn't make sense cortex. I think it'd look something like this: { Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar }. Meow.
posted by chunking express at 11:16 AM on October 25, 2007


Kitt & Newmar never defeated Batman cuz they always let him keep his utility belt.

{ Batman (Earth One), Zombie Batman, Super Zombie Batman, Antibatman, JRun }
