Capeshit is a slang term used to refer to superhero comics and movies with a neutral or negative connotation.


When the word "capeshit" came into usage is unclear, but it has been used on 4chan since at least 2009. The earliest found capeshit mention is a November 15th, 2009 4chan post[1] on the anime board /a/ in a discussion about manga and western comics.

Another /a/ post[2] dating to August 29th, 2010 associates capeshit with the comics and cartoons board /co/. The term may have originated on /co/ but archives for the board before May 4th, 2012 are unavailable.[3]


"Capeshit" has been mentioned[4] on /co/ over 60,000 times. On the television and film board /tv/, more than 350,000 archived posts[5] using the word are found.
