Superhero Underwear: If you buy these, please don’t tell me

While shopping at Wal-Mart this past weekend, I stumbled across these superhero briefs for men.  Yes, these are for adults.  They look like overgrown Underoos.  While I’m always thrilled to find superhero apparel, these are not something I would wear.

Fathers and Sons

Okay, I haven’t read any Batman comics regularly in the past few years.  I read Batman: RIP and didn’t care for it.  Even though I’m a HUGE Tim Drake fan, I walked away from Robin once it became Red Robin.  I’d simply had enough of the craziness in the Bat-verse and wasn’t interested in Grant […]
