Orphan Club: ORIGINS

Have you ever written something incredibly stupid but it makes you laugh when you read it?  Because this is what this is.  If you don’t like stupid then go away for now.  Also, if you’re really into comic books this might make you twitchy.

The First Rule of Orphan Club

I was wondering if Iron Man and Batman ever competed over who has the coolest stuff and I was thinking they should just work together but then I thought that maybe Stark Industries invented all of Batman’s stuff and that’s how Iron Man has so much money?  I bet Batman would sue Iron Man if he knew that.

And Batman would be’d be like, “You developed your suit while you were working for me so legally it belongs to me.”  But then Iron Man would be like, “I think you’re confusing me with my father who started Stark Industries. Take it up with him, asswipe. Just how old are you anyway?”  And then Batman would be like, “Fine. I will take it up with him. Where is he?”  And Iron Man would say, “Good luck asshole. He’s dead. Still feel like a tough guy now? My parents are dead.

And Batman would be like, “Oh, shit. Dudebro. Hey, I’m sorry. I get it. My parents were murdered in front of me when I was eight,” and then Iron Man would be like, “Jesus, really? You win. Mine just died of old age or diabetes or something.”

(Note to self: Look up Iron Man canon before publishing this because I’m not sure about any of this.)

And they’d hug it out and decide to go to the club and make it rain but on the way there Spider Man would show up and he’d be like, “YOU GUYS. I’M AN ORPHAN TOO. ORPHAN CLUB FOR LIFE. NO GIRLS ALLOWED. Let’s pour one out for the parents, yo” and Batman would roll his eyes and be like “You can’t sit with us, Peter. You look ridiculous in that leotard and the club where we’re going is totally ‘Billionaires Only / No Leotards.’”

And Spider Man would complain that the club is totally elitist and Iron Man would be like, “Yeah, some of us have to work for a living, Spiders. We weren’t all just bitten by diseased deer-tick or whatever and then magically get powers. Some of us have to make our own magic” and Spiders would be like, “But…Orphan Club, y’all…” and Iron Man would say, “Nuh-uh. You don’t know our struggle ,Spiders“.

(Note to self: Look up what Spider Man is called by his friends because “Spiders” seems maybe not right.)

And then Spider-Man would say “I MADE THIS LEOTARD MYSELF BECAUSE I HAVE MAD DESIGN SKILLS and also I DO have a day job too thank you very much” and they’re like, “Your day job is pretending to take pictures of Spider-Man. You’re Spider-Man.  That’s fraud, Spiders.  Why don’t you just go hang out with Superman at the Not-Very-Successful-Newspaper-Journalists Club?   HAHAHAHA.”

And Spiders was like, “That club doesn’t even exist” and Batman and Iron Man would say, “THEN GO MAKE IT EXIST. Jesus, did you learn nothing from us?”

So Spiders meets Superman on a rooftop and Superman was like “They said what?  They can’t say that about me. I’m fucking royalty. And an alien. Fuck that noise. Peter? We’re going to have kill Batman and Iron Man. I’ve got a rep to protect.”

And Peter was like, “What? Are you nuts? I just wanted to start Orphan Club. ORPHAN CLUB, DUDE. We can’t kill them. They’re orphans too.”  But Superman wasn’t having it and he yelled, “WE’RE ALL ORPHANS, SPIDERS. IT DOESNT MEAN ANYTHING. THE SLATE IS AT ZERO WHEN IT COMES TO ORPHAN SYMPATHY AMONGST SUPER HEROES.”

And then Count Chocula showed up and was like “Hey guys. I’m an orphan too. Can I join your club?” And Superman was like, “First of all, I thought this was a private meeting and secondly, you’re like a million years old so of course you’re an orphan. If you’re an orphan it’s just because you didn’t bite your parents, so technically you kinda asked for it,” and Pete whispered, “Jeez. Supes. Slow your roll with the victim blaming, okay? We’re all orphans here.”

And then Underdog landed on the roof and was like, “Hey, is this Orphan Club? I don’t do intros so can I sniff your butts?” And Superman was all, “Jesus, Spiders, just how many orphans did you call?  Did you send out a facebook evite out to the universe?  Are you live-tweeting this shit? Some of us care about our secret identities and don’t want our butts sniffed.”

And then Underdog was like, “Technically I’m not even sure if my parents are still alive. I was stolen from them when I was only a few months old” and Superman was like, “DUDE. YOU’RE A DOG. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS TO DOGS. THAT’S NOT TRAGIC.  THAT’S JUST HOW PEOPLE KEEP FROM BECOME ANIMAL HOARDERS” and then Spiders thought to himself, Jesus. Superman is kind of a dick and Count Chocula was like, “I just came here to talk though my feelings. I didn’t ask for this shit, Spiders.” And Peter was like “Yeah, I’m really sorry. I think we all just got a little emotional, which is probably natural since we’re orphans who didn’t have the proper nurturing for-”

“Hey guys!  Am I late for orphan club?”  It was Tony the Tiger. “Can we not have meetings on the roof from now on? Not all of us can fly. I almost had damn a heart attack scaling this wall.”

“Goddam it, Spiders” Superman yelled, “Is there anyone you didn’t invite here?” Then he paused and took a deep breath and said, “Okay, sorry I lost my cool. We’re not here to talk about our past. We’re here to kill Batman and Ironman. This is our new focus. Me, Spiders, flying dog, vampire and talking tiger. It’s a weird crew but I think I think I can work with this. Is anyone else coming, Spiders?”

“Well, Alvin and the Chipmunks checked ‘maybe’ but I doubt they’re coming because I’m pretty sure they can’t come to terms with the fact that Dave is a human and not their dad and is just exploiting them for money. I think it might be a Stockholme Syn-”

“FUCK THOSE CHIPMUNKS,” Superman interrupted. “This isn’t about them. This is about killing Batman and Iron man.”

Count Chocula is like, “Whoa. I did not sign up for this. I protect cereal, y’all. I’m a pacifist” and Tony the Tiger was like, “Agreed. I’ve seen enough war to last a lifetime” and Superman was like, “What, like from when you were in ‘Nam? You’re a Tiger, man. Tigers don’t go to war.”

And Tony was like, “There were dark days…when my Uncle Scar killed my father and tried to take the throne-“ and Spiders was all, “That’s totally the plot to The Lion King!” and Tony was like, “Yeah but I wouldn’t sell the rights to my story so Disney changed enough of the details so I couldn’t sue them. Switched out tigers for lions. Erased my husband completely. Gave it a happy ending. It’s sorta shitty. I was hoping Orphan Club would help me work through all of these feelings of-“

“THERE IS NO ORPHAN CLUB,” Superman yelled. “STOP WITH THE ORPHAN CLUB.”

And Underdog was like “Because it’s top secret?  Like, the first rule of orphan club is we don’t talk about orphan club?” And Superman was like “No. The first rule of Orphan Club is that Orphan Club doesn’t exist because Orphan Club is fucking stupid” and Tony the Tiger was like “Jesus, this guy is a dick” and Superman was all, “I HEARD THAT. I HAVE SUPER-HEARING, REMEMBER?” And Spiders was like, “Don’t take your personal shit out on Orphan Club, Superman.” And then Superman yelled, “You know what?  Fuck all y’all. I’m starting my own group and its the Kill Ironman and Batman and Then Come Back And Beat The Shit Out Of You Motherfuckers When I’m Done Club” and Tony the Tiger was all “That name does not sing” but it was too late because Superman flew off.

Then Spiders was like, “Shit, y’all. I’m super sorry. He’s got some emotional stuff he needs to work through” and Tony was like, “I get that but there’s no way I’m surviving getting attacked by Superman. I barely survived a fight with my elderly uncle who had no superpowers at all. I’m literally just a talking tiger.” And then Count Chocula shrugged and was said, “Ah fuck it. I’ll make you guys all vampires. Just be careful around wooden stakes and you’ll be fine.” And he totally did, even though he was slightly dog blood intolerant and he had diarrhea for a few days. “Meh …what’s a little diarrhea between friends?” he said as he made Underdog immortal.  And that’s when they suddenly realized that they weren’t just orphans after all. They were a family. And that’s the true meaning of Orphan Club.

And also that’s how Spider-Man, Count Chocula, Underdog and Tony the Tiger became a gang of vampiric crime-fighters who didn’t like Superman but also didn’t really like Iron Man or Batman either so they decided to just let them deal with their own shit and instead focus on stuff like wiping out cholera and homophobia and racial intolerance and people who say they’re allergic to gluten when they’re not really allergic to gluten.

NEW FRANCHISE STARTS HERE.  (Call me, Stan Lee.)

  119. When I think about it, I bet Bambi and Batman would have a lot in common too, with the kid-watching-parents-get-murdered thing. So how did Bambi not become a twisted billionaire with a black onesie in the basement? Did the cute little bunnies save his psyche, or is he just a bundle of kill waiting to explode?
    And what about the Not Orphan But Wish I Was Club, for the ones with dick parents? Like Rudolph? I’m not sure I would have forgiven so easily if my dad went along with everybody making fun of my nose and my mom just let it happen.

Total meltdown over what kind of sandwich I wanted for lunch. I’m talking nuclear. Counting, walking around the cafeteria after my optometrist appointment at our local hospital trying not to cry because there were eight sandwiches, god dammit, and how was I supposed to pick one? I ended up in the nearest bathroom trying to stop hyperventilating. There could have been a tiny chorus of fuck, fuck, fuck, coming from my stall. I still hope no one heard me. I ended up with chili – that had icky beans in it – and I didn’t cry. And I drove myself home to pop that magic pill. So win? Loss? Draw? Who cares, now I’m laughing.

  247. Now THERE is a bedtime story for ya.😀
    Something half-different: I am currently listening to the audiobook of ‘Let’s pretend this never happened’. While I am on the train to work. And sometimes I have to work really hard not to laugh out loud like a maniac but I am still grinning like mad. People are scared of me now. I can see how they look out for a hiding place. Four seats to myself during rush hour. Not bad.

  249. “Spiders” doesn’t make me as twitchy as “gluten allergy” does. But I’m twitchy about that for, probably, the wrong reasons. See, I can totally understand why some people use the word allergy in reference to gluten. The general population is aware enough of what an allergy is that they understand that allergy = really really bad. Unfortunately most people are not as aware of the significance of a gluten intolerance or sensitivity (hint: it also equals really really bad). And there’s been so much press about people who go gluten free as some sort of fad diet that, now, it’s understandable why so many people want to roll their eyes every time they hear the word gluten. If I tell a waitress that I have gluten ataxia, the best I can hope for is blank look. If I further explain that eating gluten could cause permanent damage to my cerebellum, the waitress might begin to grasp that gluten is a bad idea for me. Or the waitress might be slammed and too busy to care. If I say the magic word “allergy,” suddenly it’s considered a real issue. I struggle with this annoying problem all of the time. The hardest part is that there doesn’t seem to be a correct way to handle it. I know it isn’t an allergy, but it is more serious than a ‘lifestyle choice’. How do I convey that?

    (I think just by explaining it each time. It sucks but I’ve gotten to that point with all my medical issues. It’s crappy to have to educate everyone in the world but it makes it easier for the next person who won’t have to explain as much. That’s what makes it easier for me to deal with. ~ Jenny)

  250. No Girls allowed in the Orphan Club!! Screw that shit! Ladies, we need to start our own Orphan Club! Only one of my parents is dead, but it’s only a matter of time before the other bites the dust because of his stupid triple creme cheese addiction. I say, we make Hillary Clinton the president of the Orphan club (someone please check to see if her parents are orphans).

  255. For some reason my brain turned Orphan club into Oprah club for the first 3 paragraphs. I was confused about why they were forming an Oprah club but figured it was because of the beaucoup (a word I use but have never had to spell until this moment) of money they each had. Orphan club make way more sense.

    I am totally on board with the t-shirt idea, but Superman has to be standing off to one side looking all sullen and angry while Iron Man and Batman are way up in the front looking smug. I even picked Batman over Spiders because he has a butler. LOL!

    You are even more ignorant than I am on the haps in the the Super Hero world.
    I expect to see a Stan Lee Obituary any day now, because of this.
    THIS IS ON YOU!

    One of the most important things I have learned about Batman, is that Batman has a contingency play for every super hero, should they turn bad. And he anticipates that sooner or later, they will either try to take over the world for the good of mankind, or get tired of the fight and set themselves up as dictators just because they have become bitter.

    So I also expect to see an obituary for both Clark Kent and Superman as well. Also on you!
    Did you not know that Batman has a private store of Kryptonite stashed?

    My fav is your convos with Victor. I really wish you had first consulted with Victor on this, not only because he could help you with plausible nicknames for Spidey, but also you could get the whole origins of Batman’s cool toys thingy correct. Hello? Wayne Enterprises?

    Your portrayal of the cereal box characters, however, was spot on. It’s like you KNOW them!

  288. Do you ever read a really good book and go OMG I NEED MORE WHY HAS THE AUTHOR NOT ALREADY WRITTEN MORE and now I am sad because there is no more…and then you realize that if they did write more there is very little chance that it could ever live up to the original because it was not only awesome but finished perfectly and then you are even sadder … and will never meet those characters again and that makes you more sad … and then you say thats okay I can read it over again and enjoy it forever but you realize you only get to read something for the first time once and you totally wasted it because you read through it so fast because it was funny and then you cry … and then you go to the library because damn it there is a good book out there that I haven’t read and I am going to find it if it kills me because I need a rebound🙂
