How can there's no superheroes with the powers of a dung beetle? These fuckers are the strongest animals in the entire world
>>
>>79042278
You're welcome.
>>
>>79042570
Well its The Authority, so I guess he gets stronger by rubbing shit all over himself? Or does he flat-out ingest it?
>>
>>79042903
Read that issue, dude.
>>
>>79043088
Its not like I have it close to hand.
>>
>>79043176
Visit the Win-O-Thread.
>>
>>79043176
So get it.
>>
>>79042278
If they're the strongest animal in the world, how come I can crush one no problem?
>>
>>79043253
relative to their size and weight
>>
>>79042278
Acari are stronger
>>
>>79042278
That would be a shitty power.

No
Dung beetles are the strongest
>>
>>79044146
Huh. It looks like you are right. I have read that Acari were stronger, but I can't find any sources to back it
>>
>>79045264
Did you seriously just do a 50 minutes research on dung beetles?

I hate this shit.

Strength relative to weight doesn't mean jack. I am stronger than a dung beetle.

If there was a dung beetle my weight, it would collapse under its own mass because it has no internal skeleton.

A 1000ft tall man would liquify his shins if he took a single step (probably would collapse before he could try though).

Humans are also mainly only weaker than similarly sized animals because of the way our muscles are arranged, not so much the muscles themselves (we sacrifice leverage for fine movement).

Hate this trope.

>>79046019
uh.. the one thing it definitely wouldn't do is collapse under its own mass. it's significantly stronger and less dense than a mammal.
what it would do is have difficulty lifting itself, as its muscles are hydraulic in nature and those don't scale well. plus it wouldnt be able to get enough oxygen
the rest of that is right though. just don't get dramatic

anyway scarabs are dungbeetles, so any scarab-based egyptian god powers count.

>hurrrr superheroes are illogical i haet dis!!! :(
You are supremely retarded
>>
That kind of shit doesn't sell.
>>
If it makes you feel any better, you can fight one in Megaman X 6
>>
>>79046235
Well, apart from agreeing with me on the scale thing... your logic is off.

What does density have to do with it? I said my weight (mass). I didn't say my size. Leverage effects (lifting, supporting body weight, movement) would all multiply.

At best that beetle would be stuck in one place. At worst all of its systems would start to fail (lungs collapsing, etc) due to scaling issues.
>>
>>79046253
I like superheroes, but too many people take this shit as fact.

I mean, everyone knows most of the shit is ridiculous, and it makes it entertaining. Yet we have people like OP who repeat it and it becomes fact for the average person.

I've taught in a few schools, and you do hear in elementary classes things like "scientists don't know how bees fly, it defies aviation laws" or "a beetle weighing as much as a human could lift 54 tons".

Comics are nonsense, but you love them for it. People like the OP who start out pretending that bullshit is fact... that's what gets me.
