Vegans Are Superheroes

Published by PETA.


In the new movie Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which opens tomorrow, former Superman Brandon Routh plays a superhero once again. This time, his character is a “ninth-level vegan,” which means that he has the power of telekinesis. As his character puts it, his power stems from the fact that his brain isn’t “filled up with curds and whey.” (I think I must be only a sixth-level vegan because my only superpower is the ability to make vegan chocolate disappear.)

In real life, Routh has another superpower—the ability to make a killer vegan breakfast. “I love pancakes,” Routh told Maxim magazine. “I think the vegan ones I make are as good [as] or better than the ones with eggs, butter, and milk.”

We’re going to be sure to hit Brandon up for his recipe, but in the meantime, you can give these a try.
