Kris Straub, who does a few webcomics, tweeted earlier:
"Do you know why I like webcomics? Because anyone can say, 'I couldn't find the story we all wanted to read. So I wrote it.' "
This especially rings true for me. Growing up as a huge fan of the X-Men, I never, ever got tired of seeing them just doing regular stuff in the school environment they lived in, like playing sports together, or even just shooting the shit. I could read entire books just about the stuff they got up to in the Danger Room. I wanted to live in the X-Mansion.
Moreover, I wanted to see something like the Venture Brothers, but strictly for superheroes. There are a few superhero satires out there, for sure, but nothing that I've found has been quite what I was after. All that, combined with having these characters in my head for years that have been absolutely screaming at me to tell their stories, Super U. came to be.
