Name that Superhero Diaper Pail!

Superhero Diaper Pails

Everyone poops. Even superheroes. Though, having been a bit of a collector in my youth, I can tell you it’s not something that you’ll ever see depicted in the colorful storyboard format of a comic book or its blockbuster movie adaptation. “Hey, Alfred! Can you hand me a roll of bat-wipe? I’m out. The curry last night must not have agreed with Robin.” Yeeeeeeah. Kind of kills the heroic image.

Honestly, now that I think about it, the idea of practically any superhero “dropping the sidekicks off at the pool” equals instantaneous laughter for me. But we’ve taken this crazy thought process further. What if superheroes had babies? If their costumes, vehicles and lairs are as wild and amazing as they are, what would their parent-gear look like? All babies are already born with the super power of pooping, but in this Instructional Diagram we’re taking a look at what superhero diaper containment units would look like.

Can you guess which superhero these diaper pails belong to?

For the comic snobs: there’s one in here which could kind of go two ways, between two possible comic characters, but I’ll give you a hint: there are three Marvel Comics characters and three DC Comics characters here.

Picture any superhero dealing with any of these and if you don’t laugh, you’re a supervillain.

    my guesses are as followed:
    1. Iron Man
    2. Batman
    3. Wonderwoman
    4. Spiderman
    5. Incredible Hulk
    6. Superman

    I don’t know for sure that this is correct, but I LOVE the designs. Great job Andy!

    • andy says:

      You are 100% correct! Aw, shucks, thanks. HowToBeADad.com is my super power and my kryptonite is dawn. (which is when I finished this bad boy)

  4. Doug says:

    Iron Man, Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider Man, Incredible Hulk, Superman

  5. mikes says:

    Not having a good memory who is Marvel and who is DC, I’ll take what I think is the other option:

    1. Iron Man
    2. Batman
    3. — Invisible woman
    4. Spiderman
    5. Incredible Hulk
    6. Superman

    Of course, there is always Space Ghost for #3 also.

    You could also argue that #5 is Supes, with the green area being kryptonite. I mean, it is super-poop. ;)

    • andy says:

      5 out of 6 are correct.

      First off, you had me at Space Ghost. AMAAAAAZING. Ha ha ha ha ha! I’m going to have to disagree about the Superman proposition: baby poop is bad enough, superbaby poop must be even worse, so why make the containment unit EVEN MORE TERRIBLE! Ha ha ha ha!

  6. DorkDad says:

    Bottom center could be Dr. Doom… just for the record.

    • andy says:

      S##t. You’re right. (bowing in respect).

      I was going to put large finger dents in it (Hulk’s was the last one I made) but when I started seeing sun come through the windows at 6am this morning, I knew I needed to get it the F done and posted. ;)

    • andy says:

      Wait! No! Doom has no purple. I’m gonna have to disagree, I think it works.

  7. Matt says:

    What, no Green Lantern? It would be perfect!

  8. JB says:

    Ironman
    Batman
    Invisible Woman
    Spiderman
    Lex Luthor
    Superman

  9. Stephanie K. says:

    All of the above ^

  10. jetts31 says:

    How geeky can I be? We have Iron Man, Batman, and the Fortress of Solitude for sure. We may have the Hulk or Lex Luthor Powersuit. We have Spidey. But could be Venom or Spidergirl too. Lastly, Invisible Woman, Ghost Rider, Wonder Woman’s plane, Martian Manhunter, Supergirl (Matrix version), Spectre, or Phantom Lady.
    And I wish my kids still were in diapers and these things were real. And I am a huge dork.

    • andy says:

      Ha ha! You got them all in your options. Hulk and Wonder Woman seem to be throwing people. My fault, I could have made them fool proof.

      TOTALLY with you on wishing these actually existed since I’ve got a little super baby who’s still producing butt biscuits.

  11. Odessie says:

    1. Iron Man
    2. Batman
    3. Wonderwoman
    4. Spiderman
    5. Green Lantern
    6. Superman

    This post has made me miss Saturday morning cartoons.

    • andy says:

      That comment hit me like a blow to the chest. That means so much to me! Wow! Thanks!!! I’m in totally nerd-vana right now about this whole thread! Ha ha!

  13. Lil monkey says:

    In what world is Lex Luther a super hero ????

  14. I want a real-life Ironman or Crystal Fortress one for my next kid.

  15. ScottL says:

    The issue I have with the second to last is that there’s supposed to be three marvel and three DC.

    From Marvel:
    Iron Man
    Invisible Woman
    Spider Man

    From DC:
    Batman
    Superman
    (Unknown)

    If this is Lex Luthor, it’d be the only one that’s not a “hero”, as Lex is typically considered an antagonist. Molecule Man? A villain like Lex, but the colors fit as well… Also works for Braniac… Now that I think of it, green / purple is looking more and more common as I think of this!

    • andy says:

      Have a look at the invisible one again. THAT is the mind job of the set. Once you get it you’ll say ” OOOOOH YEEEEEAH!” Maybe not with so many Os and Es, but you’ll say it. ;)

  16. ScottL says:

    OMG Andy, Wonder Woman’s Plane! I’d have never guessed… (Shame on me!) But knowing it’s Wonder Woman makes the other being Hulk obvious… LOL

  17. MotherDuck says:

    These are beyond rad! Well done Andy! May I just say that if these super heroes had as stinky of a diaper as my kids, I would hope that they could use their super powers to destroy them rather than keeping them in a container. Though Diaper Genies are great for a good laugh when pulling out the sausage roll of diapers to take them out.

    • andy says:

      Thanks!!! This is the funnest post in a while for me in terms of reader interaction. Such a comic dork I guess. More than I realized! Ha ha!

  18. Eric says:

    Imagine the tax payers money that goes to the military unit that guards the fecal refuse of baby hulk.

  19. Will says:

    Hulk? I was going with Green Goblin.

    Hilarious, nonetheless.

    • andy says:

      Those are his colors too, but he’s not a superhero. Supervillains’ diaper pails may need to be a follow up. Much harder to guess some of those I think.

  20. There should be an Aquaman one, since he actually had a kid… at least for a little while. But I guess they could just let Artie, Jr. pee and poop in the ocean like all the fish and be done with it.

    • andy says:

      I was going to have Aquaman, I even had a diaper bin made of coral sketched out in a note, but then I realized two things: 1) I never really liked Aquaman, and 2) if I added any more characters to the post I was going to die from sleep deprivation. ;)

  21. James says:

    Ok, without looking at the other comments (read: spoilers):
    1) Iron Man
    2) Batman
    3) Invisible Woman
    4) Spider-Man
    5) I’m thinkingggggg… the Hulk?
    6) Superman! :)

    • andy says:

      Almost! 5 out 6. Have another look at the invisible one again. Remember, there are 3 DC characters and 3 Marvel characters here, prominent characters that were superheroes, not villains. :)

      • James says:

        Yeah, okay — I get that it’s Wonder Woman because of the invisible plane…but considering Wonder Woman was originally created as a bondage queen (no, seriously), “invisible” isn’t the first thing I think of in conjunction with that character. XP

  22. Christina says:

    I would so buy that Iron Man pail. Superwoman can keep hers. Not only do I wish to not smell the poop, I’d rather not see it as well. I’d also like people going in and out to not know how infrequently my husband takes out the garbage…

    • andy says:

      Ha ha ha ha! I read your comment to my wife and she exploded with laughter at the last line. Might be some similarity there, between your husband and me. ;)

  23. Kurt says:

    Another “Mall Rats” quote is needed here, to amp up the superman poop debate.

    Brodie: It’s impossible! Lois Lane could never have Superman’s baby. Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle his sperm? I guarantee you that when he comes during sex, he probally blows a load like a shotgun blast… right through her back! And if by chance Lois does get pregnent, what about her womb? Do you think it’s strong enough to carry his child?
    T.S. Quint: Sure, why not?
    Brodie: He’s an alien, for Christ sake. His Kyrptonian biological makeup is enhanced by earth’s yellow sun. If Lois gets a tan, the kid could kick right through her stomach. Only someone like Wonder Woman has a strong enough uterus to carry his kid. The only way Superman could bang regular chicks is if he does it with a kryptonite condom, but that would probaly kill him!

    ’nuff said

  24. Emily says:

    Market these. They will sell. I promise.

  25. Mimi says:

    Why do so many people think that bottom-middle one is Lex Luthor? A) he’s not a superhero, and b) lex Luthor? Really? I got them all right. :)
