SNL ‘The Cape’ Parody Pretty Much Just Like the Real Show [Video]

If you’re still on the fence about giving NBC’s new superhero show The Cape a shot, you can read our own Chris Sims’ thoughtful review of the premiere, in which he discusses the series in the context of established genre parameters and breaks down the pros and cons of the show’s characters, plot and overall approach. Or you can watch Saturday Night Live’s parody sketch, which proposes additional superhero series based on other pieces of clothing like scarfs and leg-warmers. Either way, you will get a very accurate idea of the nature of The Cape, which is watched by literally millions of people despite the fact that Heroes existed.

Check out the SNL video after the jump, and click here to catch-up on all of ComicsAlliance’s coverage of The Cape.
