If you were to get superpowers, how would you die? Most people would imagine that because you have abilities that are above and beyond most mortal men, that your death would be spectacular. Like you would die saving humanity from a big alien monster that’s nine times your size and strength. Or you would be disintegrated by the sun as you pushed it back into orbit to save the Earth. Or maybe you’d be so insanely powerful, you may think death might not be an option for you.

That’s when you get hit by a yellow truck.

Just because you’re a superhero or supervillain, it doesn’t mean your death will automatically be “cool.” Many famous characters have met their end in either the most mundane way possible or the most insane way possible, but either way it’s the dumbest way possible. Here are some of the dumbest ways superhero characters have died in print.
