There’s no doubt that the boldest and most personal fashion statement, anyone can make is in one’s selection of t-shirt. Personally, I love them. It’s an opportunity to show the world what pop culture I care about, a wonderful flashback to the past and a fantastic way to initiate any nerd discussion.
For this installment of Cool Shirts, I took a look at some of the shirts from our friends at SuperHeroStuff.com which is not only one of the industry’s oldest superhero specialty shops, but also one of the best.
SuperHeroStuff sells more than shirts. Among their wares are hats, hoodies, underwear, socks, action figures, stickers, buttons, belts wallets, cardboard standups, jewelry and much more including large selections for women and children.
And if you’re interested in staying up to date, they have plenty of Batman v Superman, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Captain America: Civil War merchandise to satisfy any and all geek cravings.
As for me, I’m prepping for the latest onslaught of superhero movies. These are a few of my recent favorites.
Like many of you, I binged the second season of Daredevil totally enjoyed the addition of Elektra.
This shirt features one of her best appearances ever in the comics, concluding the epic storyline that features her, the ninja army The Hand and Bullseye. And that issue concluded with Bullseye facing off against Elektra, and stabbing her with her own sai, lifting her in the air as she died.
SPOILER: Even though Bullseye has yet to make his first appearance on Netflix, the second season prominently featured The Hand, and the death of Elektra, once again, killed by her own sai. Don’t worry, in the comics Elektra is ressurrected and if the final shots of this season of Daredevil are any indication, she’ll be back in season 3.
Do you bleed?
Do you like 100% cotton officially licensed movie merchandise?
Choose one and you’re batting .500.
Batman v Superman was far darker a film than I cared for, but this image of a very perturbed Man of Steel hovering in front of the Bat Signal looking for trouble might be the film’s most iconic image.
So sit back and relive the epic fight between the Son of Krypton vs. the Bat of Gotham.
Just not in IMAX.
This isn’t the Luke Cage that you saw for the first time on the Netflix series, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, but the blaxspoitation crimefighter introduced in 1972.
Wearing his trademarked yellow shirt and boots, dark blue tight pants, chain belt and metal headband, Luke Cage was framed and went to prison where he volunteered for an experiment granting him super strength and unbreakable skin. Escaping prison, Cage returns to New York where he starts charging for his services as a “Hero For Hire.”
Since then, Cage has become a major character in the Marvel Universe, frequently teaming with Iron Fist and marrying and starting a family with Jessica Jones. “Sweet Christmas!”
Soon to make his latest rebooted cinematic appearance in Captain America: Civil War, The Amazing Spider-Man has never looked better than he does on this shirt featuring art (I think) by “Jazzy” Johnny Romita!
Illuminated against a brick wall, your friendly neighborhood web head is crawling toward you, ready to save you from one of his most notorious rogues, or simply posing for a photo with his camera timer to sell to The Daily Bugle.
He’s amazing! He’s sensational! He’s May Parker’s favorite nephew! And you don’t need Spider-Sense to know that this shirt is a must have! ‘Nuff said!
