Although spontaneous generation does not occur and we now believe evolution of species is generally a gradual evolutionary process it is important to note that many superheroes are created much more quickly. Usually a one step process and often involving radiation.
For the punchline see the latest Super-Fun-Pak Comix by Tom the Dancing Bug (Ruben Bolling). This strip, especially the occasional Super-Fun-Pak Comix, often has some good biology and science jokes - Selfish Gene, Chaos butterfly, 10,000 years between panels, and the splendidly juvenile Science Facts for the Immature.
