Oh man, that can’t be good!

Hey everyone and welcome back to Average Joe for your mid-week pick-me-up! :) Try to stay away from clowns on bikes.

Today’s comic came about as the result of some serious thinking about what would happen if the ‘superhero/villain arms race’ were to actually occur. There’s already been numerous instances of individuals who have dressed up as their favourite superhero and gone out to fight crime in real life (or even created their own personas), and it occurs to me that if your average joe (ha! see what I did there?) actually did start running around saving people with superpowers, then you’d probably also see a bunch of other people clamouring to share the spotlight – and what better way than setting yourself up as a kooky super villain?

…of course, some people can be a little derivative.

Don’t forget to check back in on Sunday folks! I don’t think we’ve seen the last of this guy ;-)
