Hero Envy and its spinoff Hero Envy: The Swass Adventures are two American web-based comedy series, initially produced exclusively for Internet distribution. The former was the sole venture of the production company Glint of Hope Productions. That series ran for 24 episodes and three "Christmas Annuals". After a hiatus in fall 2008, the spin-off show was produced by Reckless Sidekick Productions. The Hero Envy franchise has been described as "nerd parody."
