"Super Union Blues" is the 14th of 35 Darkwing Duck comic stories published in the Disney Adventures magazine. It is a two-parter spread over two issues and the first multiparter comic story printed in the magazine. The parts have no names of their own, simply being "Part 1" and "Part 2".

  • Mister Wonderful is a reference to Mister Fantastic. His outfit is a near-match to the Marvel character's, he too leads three other superheroes, and like pre-2000 Mister Fantastic Mister Wonderful smokes a pipe.
  • Ulti-Man is a parody of Superman. Like the DC character, he's an alien performing heroics on Earth. Dandelions are Ulti-Man's kryptonite and even the glasses get a shoutout, although in Ulti-Man's case he wears them as superhero rather than as civilian (presumably).


  • Steelbeak also tries to impersonate a superhero in the cartoon episode "Smarter Than a Speeding Bullet".
  • The earlier comic "Feeling Flushed" has Darkwing say he is a member of the superheroes union. This would place "Feeling Flushed" after "Super Union Blues" and mean that Darkwing accepted membership after all.



  • When the dandelions are pushed in Ulti-Man's face, his cheeks are missing.
  • After dealing with Ulti-Man, Steelbeak goes in three panels from wearing his Ulti-Man costume to wearing a Ulti-Man colored version of his trademark suit to his trademark suit in regular colors.


  • Darkwing Duck was featured on the cover of issue #3-06 of Disney Adventures for the second time of the magazine's run.
  • Darkwing Duck himself was once changed into a Superman parody in the cartoon episode "The Secret Origins of Darkwing Duck".
