CAPTION: Sure, you’re a superhero! But that doesn’t mean you’re invulnerable to
super embarrassment!

How many times have you defeated a crazed villain and then–just moments before plunging to his death–the creep ridicules you because you don’t have a college degree?

MAN: I know it hurts…worse than an atomic wedgie! But now you can earn the respect of the scumbags you battle…with a real degree from the greatest diploma mill in the universe! Comicstown University!

SCENE: Young woman in a commencement graduation cap & gown is embraced by her father (the man from the first panel.) In the background, two older women are talking.

YOUNG WOMAN: With a degree in psychology, I can bash bad guys…and psychoanalyze them!

OLDER WOMAN #1: Wow! Fists of Fury and flaming Freudian philosophy!

OLDER WOMAN #2: That’s a super-powered combo that’ll make any villain cringe!

CAPTION: Comicstown University: We guarantee you’ll get a super education–even if you’re super dumb!
