Let's pick up the spirit of things with a #SupermanAnalogue that is decidedly more lighthearted. Let's talk about Captain Hero from Drawn Together! Image
Voiced by Wakko Warner himself, Jess Harnell, Captain Hero was an archetypal Superman type in a series full of archetypal characters, spoofing early aughts reality tv like #RealWorld, #SurrealLife, or #BigBrother. Image
Captain Hero was just as big a fan of debauchery as the rest of the cast. #DrawnTogether was a series known for pushing the limits of what basic cable was allowed to discuss...which feels so outdated now. Image
The big guy had power as needed, though clearly didn't approach omnipotent levels, since that would have allowed him to avoid comedic embarrassment. As it is, he was part of the "bros", characters who were bored and douchey together and weirdly sex-positive while still predatory. Image
I don't recall too many stories focusing on his homelife, but when it did it usually dealt with classic superhero predicaments like evil doppelgängers and mad scientists. Usually it was roommate drama. Image
It's been a long time since I watched the show and I remember being unimpressed with the shock for shock value quality of the humor, particularly as the show attempted to top itself, but I really liked it at the time and it may hold up. The show brought me joy at the time. Image
