Super Snooper is a fictional comic book character and superhero, depicted as a superhumanly-strong dognose.

Description Edit

Super Snooper assumes the stereotypical role of the superhero, fighting for good, but using violent and spectacular means, being powerful enough to throw stellar bodies against criminals. Super Snooper comics are considered by Donald to have silly and convoluted plots. For this reason, Donald prefers and endorses comics that rely on plot and character, such as Marvin Monkey. Huey, Dewey and Louie used to consider Marvin Monkey to be 'kid stuff', but eventually came round to Donald's opinion.

Despite their simultaneously overwrought and childish plots, Super Snooper comics seem to be popular with all ages — not only does collector and man of taste Arpin Lusene own an entire full mint set of Super Snooper comics among his ill-acquired treasures, but a Beagle Boy (176-167) was once shown to be a fan of them, as were two men in the Qualmy Vista trading post.

On at least two occasions, Donald Duck, after swallowing supercharged isotopes, temporarily gained superstrength and invulnerability akin to Super Snooper's. Having the comics on his mind both times, Donald thus briefly adopted "Super Snooper" as his own unserious superhero alias as he ran amok throughout Duckburg, flaunting his newly-acquired powers.

Behind the scenesEdit

Super Snooper was first mentioned in the Carl Barks story bearing his name, Super Snooper, in 1949. He later appeared in several other stories.

The Super Snooper vs Marvin Monkey plot point is probably a jab at the gradual "replacement" of classic Disney (and therefore, duck) comic book stories by superhero comics during the 1960s and the 1970s.
