I've got television telepathy; if I'm thinking about a certain episode of a certain TV show during the day, it usually airs later that day (even if I didn't know it was going to air later that day).
It's happened far too many times to be considered a mere coincidence.
As it turns out, dozens of anons on /co/ are telepathically linked to their T.V.s and so the Couch Crusaders were born.
Media Bending is the primary power of the Couch Crusaders, they are capable of always knowing which episode of what show is going to be on T.V. even without looking it up. The power is manifested subconsciously whereas even thinking of a song that was played during an episode of a show will cause that episode to air later the same day.
They might be the reason why other superheroes have such good PR in the media despite the collateral damage they may cause.
Drawfag Hellpop Hammer was in the thread and decided to draw the first four anons who replied that provided their couch crusader names and a small description of themselves. Blankette ended up drawing the group as well.
Their emblem is a couch with two remotes crossed.
Wears red fuzzy slippers with red couch arm pads strapped to the back of his arms, and a red bowl on his head as a helmet over his black hair.
The fearless leader of the Couch Crusaders.
Female with shoulder length brown hair, permanent bedhead, and a giant hoodie. Her pockets can produce any snack that is able to fit in them.
Wields a giant hammer and wears a mask that little horns which stick out from her hair.
With the uncanny ability to predict plot points, recognize cliches, and call bullshit, The Detector serves as the "Check Engine Light" of viewer fact-checking.
Jay Garrick style helmet (sans wings) connecting to square-frame goggles and casual wear accentuate the thick short beard worn by this intrepid hero. Tune in next week to hear the predictions for the week after's episode!
Members who do not possess media bending powers, but have other skills that the Couch Crusaders respect.
The guy with the HUGE DVD and VHS collection who comes along to save the day when absolutely nothing good can be found on TV, or when all there is on TV is a movie or show you could watch on DVD/VHS at any time without commercial breaks.
Lady Laze-About & Laze-About LadEdit
They're the ones that can lay on the couch in a poses that looks extremely painful to an outsider but are actually incomprehensibly comfortable. They can balance a bowl of snacks and the remote on random parts of their bodies, i.e. snacks on foot, remote on head.
Couchmobile, the Couchcopter, and hovercouchs for every member.
