Besides Wolverine? There's not much point in trying to imitate American jingoistic superheroes with a minimal budget.
And Canada's already had a screen superhero, in Toronto-based Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

Yeah, it's too bad Superman was a sell-out lol
Even the city of Metropolis was based on Toronto.

But I gotta go with Lorne. Bob & Doug are the perfect Canadian superheroes LOL

... and as a sidekick they could use "Kebek Electrik", By day he is a hapless overweight, unemployed Frenchman living off the avails of prostituting his wife, but when duty calls ... like Popeye the sailor, Kebek Electrik quickly consumes a can of poutine and almost instantaneously he is endowed with superhuman strength and has the power to shoot lightning bolts and toxic fumes out of his ass.

It may require some work developing his character but I think Kebek Electrik could become a big hit ...

No no. You're dull witted, evil villian, Dr.Assfacts.

Although you would make a great Stuporman.

You are no super hero, rather a diabolical, albeit dim witted "Smellyturd" arch nemesis of the "Tidy Bowl Man". By day you bromance your side kick in bigotry Jasbinder, by dispensing racial vitriol on Topic forums. By night you soil toilet paper rolls and do battle with the Tidy Bowl Man as he tries to sink the most abominable floater in the bowl that is Smellyturd!

Your kryptonite are the digestive enzymes, found in septic systems. The Tidy Bowl Man will soon capitalize on this and vanquish you once and for all!

Well when yer feeling superheroish enough, maybe you can out come from hiding behind that proxy server you use.
Whats'a matter Dr.Assfacts? Are you embarrassed about your location? Are you not proud of where you live?

C'mon there sport, be a MAN for once in your life.
If yer not proud to own the shit you post, then don't post it. Don't be a pussy and hide behind a proxy server.
