Masked Men

It's always nice to see some comic book representation around the holidays. Halloween in particular is an easy way to cram some superheroics into your festivities.More so, apparently, this year as I turned the corner at Wal-Mart and was accosted by a gaggle of Marvel Comics themed kid's costumes: Captain America, two different versions of the Spider-Man costume, the Hulk and Iron Man.

This might not seem like a huge discovery but it wasn't too long ago when comic book movies were few and far between and therefore so were super hero Halloween costumes. Not exactly world altering but when you haven't posted anything to the blog in a while then all of a sudden it seems very relevant.

In the interest of equal representation, there were some Batman and Superman costumes available as well but that doesn't let DC off the hook. They are woefully behind in both the movie business and the Halloween costume business. Get to work people! I want to see hordes of tiny trick-or-treating Aquamen, Booster Golds and Hawkgirls by Halloween 2010.
