Marvin reading a biology book about photosynthesis[1]

Photosynthesis is a process used by plants and other organisms to capture the sun's energy to split off water's hydrogen from oxygen. Hydrogen is combined with carbon dioxide (absorbed from air or water) to form glucose and release oxygen. All living cells in turn use fuels derived from glucose and oxidize the hydrogen and carbon to release the sun's energy and reform water and carbon dioxide in the process (cellular respiration).

Once Marvin was studying his biology homework, and he came across the word photosynthesis and he didn't know what the word meant, and so he asked Wonder Woman what it meant and he was encouraged to go to the library.[2]

The android supervillain known as Shaggy Man is powered by photosynthesis.[3]
