    The only moral victory that counted was on 29th December 2007. Even though the New York Giants lost to the New England Patriots 38-35, the Giants realized they could compete with the then undefeated New England Patriots. Thirty-six days later, the Giants defeated the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.

    14-6 was better than 18-1.

    Next, Mom will tell Dad and Dad will say, “Not now. I just got home from work.”

    Stupendous Man might need to spend less time saving the world and more time in the classroom getting smarter.

    Is this the final Stupendous Man story? If so, I wonder if Mom confiscated his costume for good.

    I was hoping that it was some an eclectic history test and that he would get full marks.

    He didn’t fail the test. Stupendous Man did!

    I’ve often wondered if Calvin will ever make it to the next grade.

    “Has Stupendous Man EVER won a battle?” One of my favorite lines.

    He still failed after all those brilliant answers? Must have been a really tough test.

    If you search “Calvin and company cartoon” you can see what happens to Calvin, Susie, and Miss Wormwood.

    “They’re all moral victories”…I don’t think those would have worked in the MCEU movies…

    Calvin’s mom should’ve taken away his costume for good

    If Mom’s smart, she’d burn the costume. That thing’s cursed, I tell ya! CURSED!!

    Kids will have a great time retelling this Calvin story. They will re-enact it, modify it, and channel the teacher.

    Stupendous Man has a costume? Looks more like work clothes to me.

    Keep telling yourself that, Calvin. One day you’ll realize doing the work in the first place is less work than to go through all these shenanigans and still flunk the test! ☹️

    Minor detail, as long as you had the moral victory.

    Kids that age should not be graded… the teacher should administer tests just to see who needs more help…. and learning at that age should not be a competition!

    Also.. competition in higher grades to get higher marks to get into college is no longer an advantage… since they consider things like your race, or sexual identity or other unfair means of attaining “equality”…

    Maybe he flunked the test because he put all the right answers in the wrong places.

    At least here, the Mom taking away Calvin’s Stupendous Man costume is justified, compared to that October 1989 Stupendous Man story arc where the Mom takes it away after finding Calvin playing in his closet after having removed the costume when he was supposed to be doing his homework. And then in February 1991 when Stupendous Man drops a large snowball on Susie from a tree, she just threatens to take it away. And I guess Calvin ended up giving the right answers to the wrong questions on the test, without even glancing at the questions!

    Stupendous Man couldn’t even spell Stupendous, let alone pass the test.

    This story arc was fun. But seriously, Calvin has himself to blame. He should have studied to get just a passing grade at least, rather pulling a stupid stunt like he did and calling it a ‘moral victory’.
