Calvin and Hobbes Use Superpowers to Fight Back-to-School
Superheroes tend to have super problems, but what about the day-to-day trials and tribulations of
everyman everykid Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes? Whether it be transmogrifying, visiting Mars, or avoiding character-building, fans know Calvin’s great power is an unbridled imagination.
Still, there are those times when the back-to-school reality threatens the spirit…
Times such as Miss Wormwood’s classroom with its ever-exacting tests…
Bear witness to the rise and fall of Stupendous Man!, champion of the test-taking coping mechanism. “S” is for Stupendous! “T” is for Tiger, Ferocity of! “U” is for underwear, Red! “P” for power, incredible! “E” for excellent physique! N for…um…Something…hm, Well, I’ll come back to that… “D” for determination! “U” for… wait, how do you spell this? Is it “I”??
