Superosity is a daily comic strip by Chris Crosby, the co-founder and co-CEO of Keenspot.[1][2] It was the first comic ever to be hosted by Keenspot.[3] The comic focuses on the adventure-filled life of an idiot who wears a cape for no apparent reason (Chris), his perpetually angry teenage brother (Bobby), a sentient board (Boardy), and their friends. The Sunday comic usually focuses on the fantastical imaginations of Chris's pets, Giz (a dog) and Mask (a cat).

Superosity launched on March 1, 1999.[4] It has an archive of over 3,000 strips to date.[5][6]
