Another desktop hero

Ever wonder where Calendar Man, The Calculator, Captain Morgan Fear, and Prince Ra-Man would find the female member of their super-villain team "The Household Items Gang"? Well wonder no more, as you behold the terror of office secretaries everywhere, Whiteout!


I bet Office Depot just found their first corporate-sponsored super character. Take that, Stark Industries! Of course they'll have to change her slogan -- "Oops" just isn't going to cut it -- but otherwise I think she's a natural. Just look at how they even got the little curlicue on top, just like happens with a real dollop of whiteout! Clearly, someone lavished a lot of time on this character. I mean, after the initial tequila-fueled panic attack five minutes before deadline when they hit upon the idea after digging wildly around in their desk for inspiration, that is.

  1. I see a naked chick with a Klan hood.

    (hmmm…”I see naked chicks…”)

  2. You do know that Whiteout is also a term for blizzard conditions that are so bad that visibility is reduced to near zero? That’s what was being channeled in this case.

  3. Yes, I’m aware of that term. But “She’s named after a blizzard” isn’t funny while “Here’s yet another in a long line of heroes named after products the creator saw on his desk while hard up against a deadline” is. Well, in theory anyway šŸ™‚
