'Why Superheroes Don’t Spend Much Time Online' comic ties together two incredibly iconic pop cultural elements: superheroes and the Internet. The comic is an appropriate medium for this humoristic representation which uses four well-liked comic characters: the Incredible Hulk, Spiderman and Wolverine. This comic strip by Agent X is the newest addition to a series of viral comics, videos and pictorials that humanize these recognizable characters by showing them participating in popular, modern activities.

Comic genius Agent X says of his inspiration: "I always wondered why the computers that superheros used, were so big, or seemed to be controlled just by a few large buttons. I am now convinced that this is one of the major causes of Superhero violence in the Marvel & DC universes. Sure, it is great having powers and super strength. But if you could not Tweet, Facebook, or surf porn, then how would you feel?" Stats for Techy Superhero Parodies Trending: Older & Average
