Superheroes That Fly High on 4/20

Hey, hello, HIGH (see what I did there?), but seriously…  Hi guys, Dre here with a holiday-themed article (yes, it’s a holiday). Have you ever wondered which one of your favorite heroes celebrate the littest of all days? Yes you have. Well wonder no more fellow geeks! I have here a list of Superheroes who I know for a fact, not really, pass the dutchie pon de left hand side.



Yes, I know shocking, the Blue Boy Scout partakes in the Green Goddess. But don’t judge him, you try saving the world and sometimes the universe and not need a little toke. I mean after about the 50th kitten stuck in a tree or burning building, I’d love a Super-joint or two.



The Incredible Hulk

What you thought he was green because of gamma rays? Nah B, that’s Ganja Rays! Also, how else do you calm down a rage monster like the Hulk? Hint: not with smooth Jazz. Besides, I’m sure Bruce Banner needs to take the edge off during those harder days.


Green Arrow

Ok, c’mon. Dude lives in Seattle. You can’t tell me he doesn’t have a Bong-Arrow in his quiver. Plus, have you seen that goatee? Only someone on cloud 9 would think that was good choice of facial hair.



When you’ve been to Hell more times than you can count, battled creatures that make the Boogieman check his closet, and have your soul threatened every other day, I think you’ve earned the right to conjure a nice Cannabis Cro (UK slang)


The Bounce

If you’ve never heard of him, you’ll probably think I am making this up, I’m not. This superhero, from Image Comics by writer Joe Casey and artist David Messina, canonically smokes before and after saving the day! Jasper Jenkins aka The Bounce is basically Peter Parker with none of the responsibility and a lot more Mary Jane, if you know what I mean. You can check out the collected edition of all 12 issues here.


Honorable Mentions:

Marijuana Man- A little on the nose with this one

Green Lantern- Space Weed

Deadpool- Duh

All of Wakanda- They’re all geniuses, of course they smoke

Gambit- Cajun

Happy 4/20 my fellow Geeks of Cannabis! Stay Lit!


About Dre

Hey Hi Hello! I’m Dre, a writer for GOC, and going to college in North Carolina. I've been geek of color since birth. My favorite shows growing up were Spider-Man, X-Men: Evolution, & Justice League Unlimited. This set the foundation of my love for the medium of animation and dreams of being a Superhero. I realized I wasn't wearing spandex anytime soon, so I began creating my own heroes. It surprisingly took me another twelve years to read my first comic book, my freshman year in college. Hundreds of comics, hundreds of dollars, and dozens of new comic book movies/TV shows later, I've become fully immersed into the geek culture. After getting my Media Studies degree in next couple years, I plan to go to Hollywood and create diverse and hopefully inspiring characters for the next generation of geeks of color.
