Dr. Empathy

Dr. Empathy

Employs mind-bending therapeutic listening powers.

It turns out the Floor Kraken is actually just a metaphor for Capn' Skard's father.

Dr. Empathy held the coveted title of Current Champ from Wednesday, November 21, 2007 to Wednesday, November 21, 2007, heartily vanquishing Capn' Skard to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Kid Zombie.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Kevin .


Quotes overheard while standing in the crowd that gathered to watch the carnage…

  11. Oh holy crap, isn't empathy was any super-hero really needs? I mean, who can understand one who is truly unique? Who will ever vanquish Dr. Empathy!?

  12. Dr. Empathy looks like he might be the alter ego of this guy, or perhaps just a creepy doppelganger.

  13. Did you ask who could vanquish this guy? There are a couple routes that I see being taken (of course, the one that is taken will be unlike anything I ever thought of, as Kevin and Sutter are genius). 1) Dr. Empathy's power is that of listening, so he could be vanquished by a hero that can't talk, or doesn't need to talk. 2) A hero that removes the Dr's ability to hear-- perhaps the Loch Ness Ear Wax Build-up Monster 3) A hero that overloads the sensory capacity of Dr. Empathy by needing more empathy than the Doctor could ever provide..... either that, or distract the man with the Wriggly Twins...

  14. ooh!! I just thought of this one: 4) The ADHD Kid! His uncanny ability to be distracted by all things swirly, shiny, or new renders the Doctor's empathetic powers uselss! This kid can stare at the spiral swirls of Dr. E's emblem, get distracted by the shiny specks, think of anything and everything but his problems, and never once allow himself to settle into a calm theraputic mood!

  15. Kevin, that evil alien skull head knee on the good doctor is genius.

  16. I think he'll be beaten by Mr. Prozac, making therapists everywhere irrelevant!
    ( also Like the Dr. Empathy/Mr Prozac combo for literary reasons.)

  17. Where's my T-Shirt?
    I want one with a classy Dr Empathy and a subtle swirl watermark in the background, subscripted with a witty caption.

  18. A typical session...

    Dr. Empathy: So Capn', sounds to me like your father has really put a steering wheel in your pants?

    Capin': Aye yes, He's drivin' me nuts!

  19. Wow. I am substantially impressed. This may be my favorite new fun + pun + sketch site.
