When it comes to comics, we can all agree on a couple things. They can awesomely awesome, and they can also, well, leave you scratching your head. , to me, is by far the best created in the history of superheroes. You would think his comic book record would be spotless too; no weird sh and no mistakes.

If that were the case, this article would be done and over with already!

But thank our lucky stars, comic book writers sometimes apparently like to drink and write stories at the same time.

Here are some of those times!

1. Superman & Alien Tentacle Sex

This has been, and always will be, at the top of any list of cringe-inducing WTF moments in comic history.

It's pretty self-explanatory, too. Alien tentacles have sex and die, making Superman and cry together. After Supes and Bats decide to have a man-date to relieve some stress, but they're interrupted by meteors and sex-having alien tentacles. I HATE it when that happens on a date!

2. Superman Gets Hard

After Doc Ock and Lex Luthor break out of prison, gang up and kidnap and Mary Jane, (with a secret super power-up from Lex Luthor) pummels Superman, thinking he took MJ. The battle is funny enough, but Spider-man made things all awkward when he comments (twice) on how hard Superman had gotten.

3. More Jokes About Superman's Junk

I want to know what the writers were thinking when they put the words 'stiffening up' and 'SPOOOOSSHH' in there. And all that mystery liquid...sigh, Superman.

4. Superman And Racist Krypton?

In issue 239, the answer to why all kryptonians up till then had been white...all the black kryptonians had been sent to live on a separate island.


5. Superman And His Super diet!

Occasionally, even though our yellow sun is supposed to give him all the energy he needs, Superman just kicks back and eats mountains of hamburgers. That's one superpower I'd love to have!

What weird moments did I miss? Let me know in the comments!
