Speaking as a formerly obese guy, I don't like how comics usually portrays them as food obsessed, naive or dumb people.
Fortunately, the main character of Dial H seems like a pretty likable guy.
It doesn't make much sense for a superhero to be out of shape. Especially since it's not healthy to be overweight. Now someone like BOUNCING BOY draws his powers from his size, so it makes sense.Do you know of any "fat" super heroes in DC? I can't seem to think of any off the top of my head. Why aren't there many overweight super heroes? Can only fit people get powers and want to save the day? glennsim made a point, "why do we never see a fat Green Lantern? Or is it possible we have, but they were aliens and we didn't know they were fat? But really, what is it about flying around using a magic ring that would burn any calories? In fact, otherwise-healthy people should probably put on a little weight spending all that time flying weightlessly in space."
Can't other people get powers and not have to be fit?
Secondly, and more importantly, superheroes are wish-fulfillment. I don't want to read about Batman at the McDonalds drive thru.

Anyone else think Coop, Megas, and the gang would fit right into the Nu52?
Not only did Chuck get a hot girlfriend, in the Legion cartoon he got to be leader of the Legion. I have to say, it ain't bad being the fat guy in the 31st century.Originally Posted by Razko
