For all that they do for the world, at least fantasy worlds, the superheroes of comic books deserve to let go; but such an act can be a slippery slope as the SuperSized Heroes website shows. And it gets quite slippery thanks to the help of the citizens they are sworn to protect. Essentially, SuperSized Heroes only gain weight when fed a ton of fries by visitors.

Testing the willpower of Batman, Superman, Thor, Spiderman and Ironman, the SuperSized Heroes website reads, "Ever wondered what would happen if your favorite superhero let themselves go? Now you can find out. Feed them chips and watch them grow." The site was designed by Pure Blue for Desirable Body. Stats for Fattened Comic Book Characters Trending: Older & Mild
