TechnoRetro Dads: Awesome Hero Mix 2 (Volume 6)

by TechnoRetro Dads

On the last Awesome Hero Mix, as the TechnoRetro Dads were about to give up on their quest to gain superpowers and run for the ice cream truck down the street, something amazing happened…

JediShua and shazbazzar apply for jobs at Justice League America while their evil counterparts from another dimension arrive and look for work at the Legion of Doom (with musical interludes, of course).

TechnoRetro Dads Awesome Hero Mix 2 (Volume 6)

       

After catching the latest Marvel Studios movie in theaters, shazbazzar and JediShua thought it might be fun to slam another mix tape in Shua’s cassette player he just happens to carry under his cape for a truly TechnoRetro Awesome Hero Mix full of heroic tunes from the past and nearly present.  (Yes, it fits on a Memorex 90 minute tape.)

  • “Comic Book Hero” (The Tearjerkers)
  • “Superpowered Superhero“ (Chris Hamilton)

The Tropes:

Like any cartoonish superhero serial or comic, once our heroes have gained their powers, evil versions of themselves from another dimension appear and make a mess of things.  Of course, the trope in this troupe is that the ‘Dads’ “twins” are as bumbling as the ‘Dads themselves.  Neither pair gets the recognition (or notoriety) they feel they deserve, but our hometown heroes are pleased that, in the end, they land a place among the real heroes as sidekicks.  As for their evil counterparts…well…

And a PSA added for good measure.
