When Miss Wormwood complains that he is wasting class time drawing impossible things a Stegosaurus in a rocket ship, for exampleCalvin proclaims himself "on the cutting edge of the avant-garde.
His next sculpture "speaks to the horror of our own mortality, inviting the viewer to contemplate the evanescence of life. Watterson also lampooned the academic world. Displaying his creation to Hobbes, he remarks, "Academia, here I come!
The strip for Sunday, June 21,criticized the naming of The Big Bang theory as not evocative of the wonders behind it, and coined the term "Horrendous Space Kablooie",  an alternative that achieved some informal popularity among scientists and was often shortened to "the HSK.
These are as follows: Three of his alter egos are well defined and recurrent: As Spiff, Calvin battles aliens typically his parents or teacher, but also sometimes other kids his age with a ray gun known as a "zorcher" later "frap-ray blaster", "death ray blaster" or "atomic napalm neutralizer" and travels to distant planets his house, school, or neighborhoodoften crashing unhurt on a planet.
He made his debut when Calvin donned a fedora to hide a haircut Hobbes had given him. These strips are drawn in elaborate, shadowy black-and-white that evoke film noir.
Watterson did not attempt Tracer Bullet stories often, due to the time-consuming way the strip needed to be drawn and inked. While in character as Stupendous Man, he refers to his alter ego as a mild-mannered millionaire playboy.
Stupendous Man almost always "suffers defeat" at the hands of his opponent. When Hobbes asks if Stupendous Man has ever won any battles, Calvin says all his battles are "moral victories. Some of the "super powers" of the villains have been revealed: The "powers" of Annoying Girl and Crab Teacher are unknown.
Calvin often tries to pretend he and "Stupendous Man" are two different people, but it never seems to work. Stupendous Man has multiple "superpowers", including, but not limited to, super strength, the ability to fly, various vision powers such as "high-speed vision", "muscles of magnitude", and a stomach of steel.

However, in a story where he made several duplicates of himself, his parents are seen interacting with what does seem like multiple Calvins, including in a strip where two of him are seen in the same panel as his father.
It is ultimately unknown what his parents do or do not see, as Calvin tries to hide most of his creations or conceal their effects so as not to traumatize them. In addition, Calvin uses a cardboard box as a desk when he is attempting to sell things.
In one strip, he sells "happiness" for ten cents; if one bought it, Calvin hit the person in the face with a water balloon, then revealed that he meant his own happiness. In another strip, he sold "insurance", firing a slingshot at those who refused to buy it.
In some strips, he tried to sell "great ideas", and in one earlier strip, he attempted to sell the family car to obtain money for a grenade launcher. The box has also functioned as a secret meeting place for G. Calvin and Hobbes playing Calvinball with an assortment of sporting equipment.
Calvinball is better by far! Calvinball is a nomic or self-modifying game, a contest of wits, skill and creativity rather than stamina or athletic skill. The game is portrayed as a rebellion against conventional team team sports  and became a staple of the final 5 years of the comic.
The only consistent rules of the game is that Calvinball may never be played with the same rules twice  and that the participant must be wearing a mask .
