The Lyrics

Fear his terrible power, his awe-inspiring alter the taste of your brownies!
I was born with a twisted soul
My mutated genes left me dark and cold
The world will find that I'll be the one
On the top, no lie, their destruction comes
When their cupcake's found to not taste so sweet

A pain in their heart will bring heroes down
My power is sour and that's meant lit'rally now
Your food becomes tart with one raised-up brow
My power is sour, turn all smiles upside down

Could ask how I could cause a war
Just by turnin' a sweet thing not that no more? Yeah-eah
Ev'ryone knows that all that it would take to kill the jokes on a beautiful day
And have a smilin' face dissolve away is to simply muck up the taste
Of whatever they've chosen to eat up
Once the betrayal hits, I'll swoop in to cruelly mock them

It always hits hard when you've been let down (when you've been let down)
My power is sour (my power is sour), soon the whole world will find out
When donuts are tart, you'll have no strength now (you'll have no strength now)
My power is sour (my power is sour), you'll be curled on the ground

Please stop the weird looks at me (yeah)
Weird looks at, weird looks at me (ooh)
You're mockin' me, the monster who'll bring down
Ev'ry ice cream parlour, ev'ry Starbucks in your town
Should be glad I'm not bolder, could strike with no warnin' now
Watch you frown when your frappé cup tastes like lemon grounds
Your fav'rite snacks will all go to waste if I choose to make
It all taste bad, no additives, mate, no stealth rolls to take
Wave my hands, your tongue can't send "sweet" up to your poor brain
So could you stop fakin' a good wank? Dou-dou-dou-dou-douche, yeah
Tryna cause a fright
I wish I had a mutant trait less stupid
Practiced ev'ry day to find a new one, fruitless, yeah
Not much to do now but make it work for me (oh yeah)

I've tried really hard to make good build-up now (make good build-up now)
My power is sour (my power is sour) and nothin' else that I've found (oh-ooh-whoa-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh)
Emotional scars (yeah-eah) from the big letdown (from the big letdown)
My power is sour (my power is sour)? I'm gonna burn it down
Ooh, yeah-eah-eah, yeah, so could you please bow down?

That's really the kind of power they'd tack on to the end of a power set to try and pretend they didn't just make a Superman knockoff. Just that on its own wouldn't even be Legion of Substitute Heroes material.
