Meta-humans are what the cool kids call superheroes, or those with super powers. Thus, a Meta-Meta-Human is a superhero created by a fictional character… right?
Here are my top 5 favorite Meta-Metas. In official Top 5 style, let’s go count down:
This character really stuck with people for some reason. Whenever you bring up Meta-Meta-Humans, he’s the first most can think of– so for that alone, Bartman makes the list at number 5. After all, being a successful superhero is about being able to reach the people.
He’s a solid character and one with whom we’re all familiar– even if we didn’t know his name before this quirky British tv show pointed it out. (He uses his Truth filter to review conversations and read the subtext. <- This links to a video of the episode being referenced. PG, maybe PG13. I don’t know rating systems, but even though no one is naked, they do say penis and naked a lot.)
If you’re going to become a superhero for ridiculous reasons, it should be to impress your kids. Plus, you should already be a dinosaur because that increases your cool factor exponentially.
Doug gets #2 props for getting his dog involved in his superhero fantasies and for keeping it real with normal underpants on the outside of his clothes. (For all you hardcore comic fans– I know, with the new 52, no one has underwear costumes anymore, but we can still poke a little fun.)
The only thing cooler than a superhero is a superhero rockstar. The only thing more awesome than a superhero rockstar is a TEAM of superhero rockstars.

- If you had to pick one musical group to suddenly develop super-strength and the ability to fly, which band (living or dead, together or separated) would you choose?
