Never underestimate the power of nostalgia, even in the form of quasi-ironic undergarments. Internet users of a certain age have been abuzz over the past 24 hours about a new line of superhero-themed Underoos sized for adults and available at Hot Topic. In fact, of the eight sets announced yesterday—Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Captain America, He-Man and Skeletor—the only two left in stock as I write this are Harley Quinn and Batgirl, both available only in large. (The Batman underwear literally went out of stock and then vanished while I was typing this.)
For adult comic fans, superheroes and beer always go together. But Orlando, Fla.-based graphic designer Marcelo Rizzetto is taking that pairing to a new level by creating beers inspired by each member of D.C.'s Justice League. His first six bottles honor Batman (of course), Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and the Flash. In addition to incorporating each hero's logo into their beer label, he's created varietal names that correspond with each character. For example, Batman is a dark ale, Green Lantern is a pale ale, the Flash is an Irish red ale, and Wonder Woman is a classic American lager. Honestly, that last one should have gone to Aquaman, just to continue the old joke about American beer being mostly water. Check them all out below: Via Design Taxi.
