Why Dogs Make Crappy Super-Heroes

There is a huge reason why dogs make crappy super-heroes:

Dogs can't stop thinking with their stomachs!

For example, the members of the Space Canine Patrol Agents have just escaped from captivity, and are about to bring down the bad guys, when...

Oops. Gotta stop everything for a bone!!

The worst part?

Yes, the bad guys are anthropomorphic dogs. Yes, Krypto is riding another dog. Silver Age.

So how can Krypto and Chameleon Collie save the others?!?

So dogs can never, ever resist bones. Ever.

All villains have to do is have a cache of bones, and they're home free, apparently.

Which is why dogs make crappy heroes.

[Yes, Krypto stopped them by making them lust after their colleague's bones. This does not bode well for the future of the S.C.P.A. Or at least for the future of Chameleon Collie...]

From Superboy #131 (1966)
