5 Hilarious Modern-Day Problems Even Superman Can’t Defeat

Ever feel like you just can’t catch a break? Like, you’re finally eligible for a new iPhone and rush out to buy the 5 — only to hear, like, days later that they’ve announced the newer and better model will be in stores later this summer?

These are serious first-world problems from which others in addition to you suffer. Even superheroes. Like Superman.

Don’t believe it? Well, believe it. Caldwell Tanner is the head illustrator for CollegeHumor.com and he knows better than anyone that Superman is suffering — suffering — at the hands of the Interwebz. Yes, Superman has modern problems just like us non-superhero types. For reals.
