SuperMad Men: Can Superman Save Don Draper?

I’ve always been a fan of the opening credits for AMC’s Mad Men. What’s not to love about falling silhouettes? In the latest BustedTees tee, Superman saves Don Draper from a bad day. Now, THAT might make for a pretty interesting crossover episode. How do you think Lois Lane wold cope as a belittled copywriter?

Supermad Men is available now from BustedTees for $20.

Superman Caped Knee High Socks

These Superman Caped Knee High Socks from 80sTees is so bad that they’re awesome. Seriously, if you’ve got the audacity to use these socks (of course, with shorts not long pants) then you’ve earned a pair of thumbs of up from me. There really isn’t much more to be said about these.

The Superman Caped Knee High Socks is available now from 80sTees for $10.00.

And if you’re amongst the die-hard group of people that will dig these socks then you probably will love Justice League: Doom, the latest DC Animated movie. Justice League: Doom is available now from Amazon for $18.99.

Pop Culture: Minimalistic Pop Soda Cans

Pop Culture by David Schwen is an awesome minimalistic tee featuring popular icons as soda (or “pop” depending on where you live in teh country) cans. When I first saw this T-Shirt I said to myself, “I have to have this.” Can you name the rest? And with the  $10 Threadless Sale going on right now (and ending tomorrow), it was the perfect time to pick it up. It features some of the most recognizable characters, including R2-D2, Superman, Charlie Brown, and the Cookie Monster.

By the way, I say soda. How about you?

Should Zack Snyder’s Superman Look Like This?

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures recently released a photo revealing the look of Henry Cavill as Superman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel. The preview suggests that the latest incarnation of Superman will be darker and grittier. At first glance, I thought Superman looked great. As long as they stay away from spandex I will be happy. However, I did notice that one thing was missing from the latest Superman – the vintage front hair curl.

“There’s been a bit of a ruckus on the internets over Superman’s locks. If you know me, you know that I love Superman. LOVE him. The ‘Christian Slater’ coif he’s sporting here is keeping me up at night. It aint right. My Photoshop skills are meager at best, but I managed to give Big Blue a digital haircut. Alright now, where’s that phone book… lemme see… wonder if Zack Snyder’s in here…” -Chris Gardner

No worries, illustrator Chris Gardner put together a nice mockup of what Henry Cavill’s Superman would look like with the famous hair curl. The added curl definitely makes this Superman more Superman-like. While we are unsure as to whether or not Superman will sport the hair curl in the movie (no other photo stills have been released), Cavill was spotted on set sporting the curl as Clark Kent.

Now the only thing left to worry about is whether or not Superman will be sporting the red tights in the Man of Steel.

Buns of Steel

Oh … My … Goodness! The current TeeFury shirt of the day has got me all giddy inside! Some of you might know that I am a BIG fan of the Man of Steel so this funny tee featuring the butt from of that super dude from Krypton has got me all excited. This will probably be my second TeeFury purchase, with the first being that Holy Indie Stickup, which featured my second favorite DC character, Batman.

So what does this all mean? It means that TeeFury should print more shirts parodying superheroes – that’s what this all means!
