Stupendous Man!
About this creation
Stupendous man has always been one of my favorite machinations of Calvin and I was surprised to see that the masked champion of freedom had never emerged in LEGO (at least from what could find from searching the web). So here he is - Stupendous man! Lover of Liberty and Defender of Freedom!

Special thanks goes to the Calvin and Hobbes MOC by the Lego Builders, which is amazing and was very inspiring! And of course to Bill Waterson for his amazing Comics!

The actual rendition of this comic strip can be found in "Scientific Progress Goes Boink" or on the web here Starting at October 9 1989.

Corresponding text is below the pictures:



"Man, This is Boring!"



"How am I ever going to read three whole pages of this by tomorrow? It's Impossible!"



"...Impossible?? Why NOTHING's impossible!"



"Not for... STUPENDOUS MAN Bum Ba Ba Dum Bum Ba Ba Daa Dum"



"YES! It's... Stupendous Man ! Friend of Freedom! Opponent of Oppression! Lover of Liberty!"



"Great moons of Jupiter! Calvin (STUPENDOUS MAN's 6-year-old alter ego) has three pages of boring homework to read! It's TYRANNY!"



"Although STUPENDOUS MAN could easily read the assignment with stupendous high-speed vision, the masked man of might has a bolder plan!"



"With stupendous powers of reasoning, the caped combatant conclused thatere's no need for homework, if there's no school tomorrow!"



A blinding bolt of blazing crimson careens across the sky! It's STUPENDOUS MAN!



Seconds later, the amazing marvel alights upon an observatory telescope at Mount Palomar!



With stupendous strength, STUPENDOUS MAN carefully unscrews the giant lens...



... and blasts into space with it!



STUPENDOUS MAN circles the earth with a 200-inch telescope lens!



Aligned perfectly with the sun, the magnifying lens focuses the terrible solar energy...



... and fries a certain elementary school clean off the map!



Now mild mannered Calvin has no need to do his homework ever again! Liberty prevails!

Calvin's Mom: "How's your homework coming along, Calvin?"



Calvin: "Uh oh, it's my arch-nemesis, MOM-LADY! She can't discover my secret identity!"

Calvin's Mom: "Calvin? Are you doing your homework in there? "



"Quickly, STUPENDOUS MAN leaps into the closet to change back into his 6-year-old alter ego, mild-mannered Calvin!"



Calvin's Mom: "Calvin? Are you in here?"

Calvin: "Unfortunately, STUPENDOUS MAN's cape is caught in mild-mannered Calvin's zipper! Curses!



Calvin's Mom: " This is going to be a good one, I can tell."

Calvin: "Geez, Mom! Can't a guy have a little privacy?!"

The Observatory... which closes! Mostly because I wanted it to :)



And of course the observatory open.



Stupendous Man!




I might not be able to post anything for a while due to university ramping up again, but until then...

Thanks for looking!

And God Bless! To Him be the Glory!
