CBM Photoplasty CONTEST Winners: The Most Trivial Use Of Superpowers

CBM's inaugural photoplasty contest required contestants to manipulate photos which capture the most trivial use of superpowers. Check out the top five entries. Note, the fifth place entry doesn't fit the "trivial" criteria, but was too clever to leave out.

Thanks. When is round 2 coming?

Cyclops' optic blasts are concussive, not heat rays...

Still, some funny stuff here. Personally I liked the Magento and Uri Geller one best, but what the heck.

@ BattlinMurdock,

No, she is using her telekinesis to move the lettuce. She is tossing the salad with her mind.

RacerREX - Congrats. As for another one of these, it's really based on the interest from the CBM community. So if you want more of these it requires people demanding it.

I like them all but #5 is the funniest!!!
RacerREX - 12/8/2012, 6:44 PM
OK,

I demand it!!!!
RacerREX - 12/8/2012, 6:52 PM
I actually thought the one with the Atom coming thru the keyhole should have been included.
LegacyFilms - 12/8/2012, 6:54 PM
First image is hilarious
AshleyWilliams - 12/8/2012, 7:11 PM
Number five is the best.
nailbiter111 - 12/8/2012, 7:18 PM
Yes, number five is great, but catching a predator with your superpowers wouldn't be considered trivial. But it is an honorable mention for being so damn clever.

@nailbiter111

I demand another!

*throws down cup*
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 12/8/2012, 7:59 PM
I GODDAMN WILLING CAST MY VOTE TO HAVE ANOTHER CONTEST OF THE SORT! I DEMAND IT!

I was gone for a week for work and knew not of this contest till it was over.
I may sound a little high-flown here, but I like to think I can win at this thing. Going to college for Graphic Communications has taught me quite a few things over the years...
Omnomnious - 12/8/2012, 8:09 PM
the shazam one by far is the funniest. it should have won. as someone else pointed out cyclops blasts are concussive and heatless.

TheFirstAvenger97 - 12/8/2012, 8:37 PM
This contest I like it another!
AkshunJaksun - 12/8/2012, 8:55 PM
I thought they were all pretty lame except for the Magneto/Geller one. If this is done again I'll do it justice...
Mr2099 - 12/8/2012, 9:22 PM
Good job to you all, I gotta say. Now, ONWARD TO ROUND TWO!!!
blackster - 12/8/2012, 9:48 PM
i liked #5 and #1. #5 for just being clever, #1 for being so obvious but so simple that it got a chuckle outta me nonetheless. plus, there's also the fact that my vision's blurry right now and i misread 'fcuking' as 'fookin' and my mind instantly read it with an accent.
FunkyPhantom - 12/8/2012, 10:13 PM
Good job and a hearty slap on the back to all who posted. And yes please nailbiter111 bring on another such contest. I demand it! Make it so Number 111!
IronSpider101 - 12/8/2012, 10:34 PM
I only liked No.5, that was hilarious.

Nothing else was that funny or clever.
RacerREX - 12/9/2012, 1:01 AM
I'm betting over half if not all of the complainers on here don't even understand the "tossed salad" reference in my submission. Because if they did they would think it was clever and funny. Do a Google search if you don't get it.

And if you did get it and think you can do better, well then step up to the plate and show us all how good your material is when the next contest rolls around.
RacerREX - 12/9/2012, 1:18 AM
This clip explains it all... (warning adult language nsfw)

jimpeachey - 12/9/2012, 2:51 AM
I have NO idea what #5 is on about, its lost in translation somewhere...........................
DennisNedry - 12/9/2012, 4:30 AM
Thanks for placing me. Totes mcgoats!
thatdylhooper - 12/9/2012, 5:17 AM
Not really funny
hehemata - 12/9/2012, 7:44 AM
i didn't make it huh

oh well

do give a bigger leeway next time though, it was just 2-3 days between it appearing on the front page and the contest due date
IronDean2099 - 12/9/2012, 9:14 AM
Cyclops's beams do not produce heat! Jesus I thought people on here were ultra anal with their comic book lore. How has this one slipped by so easily?
IronDean2099 - 12/9/2012, 9:14 AM
What a pointless end to a pointless competition.
Boogie138 - 12/9/2012, 10:35 AM
@IronDean2099: what a pointless comment in a pointless thread to a pointless competition.

pointless... point.. less..

AnungUnRama - 12/9/2012, 11:44 AM
Nice to see I made it onto the list, #3 unfortunately is the first place not to win anything. But I participated for the fun anyway, not for a t-shirt.
AnungUnRama - 12/9/2012, 11:45 AM
Bring on part two.
ShadesAtKnightII - 12/9/2012, 12:20 PM
I know plenty of people are saying it here already, but.....

CYCLOPS DOESN'T HAVE HEAT VISION!
KingEmperor - 12/9/2012, 3:33 PM
A lot of people don't seem to understand Cyclops' mutant power. Or Gambit's, for that matter.
JorLBola - 12/10/2012, 6:25 AM
The best was Obi wan‘ one that‘s not only trivial but selfish ... :)
ShadesAtKnightII - 12/10/2012, 1:25 PM
With the exception of the Magneto one, these aren't even very good photoshop.
FunkyPhantom - 12/10/2012, 8:13 PM
With all these "experts" on comedy and Photoshop, the next contest should be jam-packed with hilarious, laugh-out-loud, clever, well-done submissions. I can't wait!
FunkyPhantom - 12/10/2012, 8:15 PM

Or they could just be a bunch of whiny bitches.

Naaaaaaaahhhh!
