Marvel Sells “I Need A Hero” T Just For Women

It’s rad when women are into comics, a sphere that suffers under the stereotype of being just for the Kevin Smith set. So you’d think Marvel might want to encourage to women and girls to dig their comics, right? Sometimes they do a good job, but sometimes it’s just an epic fail.  Whoever made this juniors “I Need A Hero” T — a tight-fitting v-neck available in only girls/young women sizes — for “The Avengers” might want to go back to the drawing board. By way of comparison, an “Iron Man” T for girls sold by the Disney Store reads “Be A Hero.”

Boys, be a hero; girls need a hero. Yup, got it. And I have only one thing to say about that … HULK SMASH. [Huffington Post]

On the cover of her first solo record, she’s in a basic dress that hipsters have been humping in for years — boring! She’s too fabulous for that fashion faux pas! Maybe she’s just surrounding herself with the wrong kind of people, like her fiancé, Punk, from VH1’s “I Love New York 2.” Anyway, my apologies for putting the look over the sound, but the music isn’t much to write about. It’s just Top 40-style R&B. Still, she’s got a great voice and I’m sure you’ll be hearing “Spotlight” while you’re shopping at your drug store in the near future.
