Whoopee! (1978)

History[]

How Super Mum got her superpowers remains unrevealed, but she was quite open about them and frequently used them while racing around her home town of Chelmsditch, often causing chaos though always with the best of intentions. Her long-suffering son Terry regularly ended up having to apologize for her actions or get her out of trouble, particularly when she caused disruption at his school, St Nellie's. Dad usually kept his head down and was rarely in evidence.

Notes[]

  • Super Mum was a Whoopee! regular from 1978 and a regular in the Whoopee! annual from 1979. She also appeared in the Whizzer and Chips annual 1990.
  • The strip contrasted sharply with Super Dad: a dad with superpowers is a hero, but a mum with superpowers is an embarrassment.
