Super Heroes have issues too. So says one of the coolest t-shirts this side of Gotham and Metropolis – not to mention Paradise Island, or for the hardcore Wonder Woman fans, the official name it goes by, Themiscyra. Speaking of Wonder Woman, the shirt proclaims that she suffers from Gamophobia, or the fear of marriage. For the real super hero loving fan in your life, or to satisfy your own comic book addiction personality and related collection, this shirt is a must buy.
Batman – Anger Management
We all know that Gotham’s favorite batty son, Bruce Wayne, is Batman. We also know that the man gets angry – really angry. In fact, without anger, Batman would be pretty boring. He may want to hang around with Adam Sandler or Charlie Sheen, but I’m thinking he’d probably make them look almost cuddly.
Green Lantern – Greenous Envy
This is just a fun play on his name – ala green with envy and jealousy – etc. It’s true that the nifty ring of power that the Guardians Of The Universe bestowed upon Hal Jordan is only good with green. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone was as good with their own green – money that is – as that special ring.
Flash – Speed Freak
There’s a line in director John Carpenter’s classic horror film, “Halloween”, which sums this one up nice and quick. “Speed kills!”, shouts the sarcastic friend of Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), Annie. In this case, speed is life for the super fast, scarlet speedster – The Flash.
Riddler – Know It All
Riddle me this! Does The Riddler really know it all? And is Joker, Penguin and Mr. Freeze jealous of his overpowering, villainous intellect? Of all of Batman’s foes, Riddler is probably the brainiest, and certainly the most devilishly poetic. It would be cool to see him team up with Brainiac one day.
Superman & Clark Kent – Dual Personality
Batman and a host of other crime fighting wonders suffer from the same affliction, but Superman and Clark Kent may be the most distinctly separate in ways. In the feature film, “Superman III”, the notion is taken to such a logical and realistic level, when the man of steel is split up into two men: a crazed, ultra violent Superman and a civilized, though still hearty and reluctant to get bashed around Clark Kent. The segment is definitely the highlight of the whole movie starring Richard Pryor and Robert Vaughan (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.)
Green Arrow – Borderline Personality
Anyone who watches the CW hit show, “Arrow”, can attest to the sheer larger than life personality of the hero with the powerful quiver. He comes from great wealth and also great chaos, and the man can hit anything with an arrow. Talk about target practice to the extreme!
Joker – Just Crazy!
He’s just plain crazy. Enough said. Next!
Penguin – Morbidly Obese
Except for The Blob in the Marvel Universe, or perhaps Bouncing Boy, this character has fat where it’s at. He’s damn short and damn round and all together completely damning because of his antisocial personality. People propel the myth of the jolly fat man, well Penguin, Gotham’s favorite fishmonger, definitely puts that notion to rest.
