The Ignoble Life of the Superhero Sidekick

Man, I was so jazzed when Captain Superior first hired me. Action, adventure, rescuing people… he was my dream boss. Now look at him, it’s like he’s on autopilot or something. We haven’t saved the world in months, and lately we just drive around in the Superiormobile and cruise chicks.

Andy’s sister, George, has figured out how to take corners at speed – run across the wall in a parkour fashion. She’s been doing this for months but it’s taken us a while to get it on video. At the beginning of the video she does her jump/climb of a doorframe – she does this when she’s happy (when you’re happy and you know it climb the walls). All the best to you CuteOverload folks for making the internets a happier place.” -Hilary P.

So sensitive that executives entrusted with it may not fly in the same plane and memorize only one ingredient each in the extinct Sumerian language of Mesopotamia, it has so far evaded all attempts at detection, the most recent by agents from rival Kitty-Kola.
