View Full Version : Do Peak Humans Poop Less?

So here's a question: In comics, peak humans are supposed to be at the upper limits of human physical ability, which suggests that their bodies are more efficient with regards to the various functions required to maintain itself.
That being said: Do peak humans poop less? If their bodies are more efficient, it stands to reason that they use fuel better and produce less waste, which would mean they poop and pee less than us poor slobs. I would like DC and Marvel to address this very soon, otherwise my 20 plus years of reading comics will be considered worthless and I will whine about Joe Quesada raping my child hood.

When Reed Richards poops, each stool stretches to 20 feet.

Kedd, you should know better. Questions like that should be formatted with a link to your blog post about that while asking Bendis what he thinks about it.

You eat less you poop less.
Regardless of amount, would a peak human poop less when compared to a normal human that has consumed relatively the same amount of food?

I have failed :( I should retitle this thread "Bendis is racist against poop, please work with me T.R.I.B.A.L."

And also, is it harder or easier for a peak human to get drunk? It seems like it should be easier to get them initially drunk but that they would sober up more quickly as well. Do we have any biologists on the board? Isn't Ben some kind of mad scientist? Someone get him in here.

I am sure Flash shits more than us no matter what based on the sheer volume of food he eats. I don't think Superman shits.

I really need to know the answers to these questions. Why hasn't there been a 7 issue mini-series cross over between DC and Marvel that explains, in detail, the bathroom habits of their characters? That's bullshit. That is total bullshit.

Interestingly, Moorcock has said that Elric and those of his race, the Melniboneans, don't poop at all. Some interesting discussions have been had in this regard.

I imagine Bruce Banner eats a lot more as the Hulk than he does as Bruce. If he is in the process of pooping as the hulk and suddenly reverts to Bruce, would the hulk sized poop tear him a new one and possibly dislocate his hip? Or does his poop change size also?

They poop more often. Their bodies are so efficient that they are very regular.

However, they also poop less in total. Their bodies are so efficient that it uses most of what they eat.

But why would they poop more often? If they're more efficient shouldn't the poop less often as well has producing a smaller total volume of poop per poop session?

I think Reed Richards had to install a special vacuum-based toilet for the Human Torch. His flaming poops would probably detonate if he dropped them into water.

That is, if he weren't dead.

This is most accurate. If your body is performing at its peak you should be pooping 3 times a day (give or take and allowing 24 hours for every meal.) Your poops would be smaller though since you're hypotheticaly eating healthier and your body is absorbing all the good stuff.

Digestion (especially with carbohydrates, some fatty acids, and vitamin absorption) and feces is heavily regulated by flora (mainly bacteria but also some fungi) in your gut. They certainly would not poop less. Poop is what the human body, generally, can't use! If a peak human can somehow use that stuff then they are no longer peak human, they are super human!

Only if they have a different kind of digestive system (which given some of their energy outputs probably seems likely) or have somehow altered the bacteria in their gut or are some kind of weird autotroph/have another mechanism for gaining energy.

See, Cyclops doesn't poop because it's converted into his eye beams. Very scientific process.

That probably makes more sense then his eyes acting as an inter-dimensional gateways to an energy universe or something.

What I'm saying is, Cyclops definitely poops out of his eyes.
