Tees ‘N Things is known for one of the richest superhero t-shirt collections on the web. We decided to dedicate our next few posts to our superhero t-shirts section. We will be posting the staff favorites along with some of the most popular items.
We are starting with the Superheros of the DC Comics. DC Comics has been around since 1938. They are the grand daddy of all since the first appearance of SUPERMAN, the Man of Steel in 1938, and the BATMAN, the Dark Knight Detective in the following year. This extraordinary world of modern mythology also includes superheros such as WONDER WOMAN, GREEN LANTERN, THE FLASH, AQUAMAN and the rest of THE JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA.  Our DC Comics T-shirts section of the store has something for the fan of each of these DC Comics superheroes:

Thor Swings the hammer again in sequel

May 4, 2013 Leave a comment

Only Thor would attempt the latest test of heroic strength that destiny has set up for the son of Odin. And even he will have his immortal hands full trying to defeat the evil Dark Elves and their wicked plot to plunge the universe into eternal night, especially since Thor’s own father and all of Asgard can’t defeat them. All Nine Realms are in danger of being destroyed if Thor can’t counter the universe’s most aggressive antagonist. Even Thor himself might have to make a tremendous sacrifice before the battle is over.
In a continuation of The Avengers, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is called upon to stop Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston), who rules the Dark Elves of a world called Svartalfaheim, from carrying out his horrible plans. And waiting in the wings to serve up additional wicked mischief aimed at foiling our hero is Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Thor’s own adopted brother. All that bad news together would make one grand action adventure movie without any additional plot.
But more plot there is, and it only makes the watching better. Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is there, providing a love interest for an already stressed Thor. And since a triangle is always more fun than a simple boy-girl relationship, there’s Sif (Jaime Alexander), a deity who grew up with Thor and would like to have him all to herself.
If Thor had to handle everything by himself, he would be one worn out god. Fortunately, he has the Warriors Three on his side to provide Malekith and Loki with more than one target for their monstrous shenanigans. The three are: Fandral (Zachary Levi); Volstagg (Ray Stevenson); and Hogun (Tadanobu Asano), each one a god of Asgard, so they’re quite capable of giving Thor an assist where he needs it.
Of notable mention, Stan Lee, who helped create Thor for Marvel Comics, has a small part in the movie. And playing Odin, king of Asgard, is Anthony Hopkins, who always has a regal appearance no matter who he plays.
Marvel Studios produced the movie, and it will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. So you know this film will be great from beginning to end.
And we’ve got the tees that’ll give you plenty of Thor moments on their own. So come on and take a look; you’re bound to get your own place in Asgard when you wear one.

X-Men Wolverine ends up where? Well, he is huge in Japan!

Has there ever been a hero like the Wolverine? A man with the mind of a human and senses of an animal, a human who can heal at superhuman speed and is virtually immortal? And a man who, due to those very life-lengthening attributes, feels such great pain at the loss of those he loves that it digs into the depths of his very soul?
Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) will take on the bad guys with a vengeance to protect those he cares about, and must do so in this movie. His enemies are strong, too, however, and he’s in for a fight that will show he does have a vulnerable side. There are both physical and emotional limits to be tested, and his foes are more than willing to step up to take him on.
In what seems a complicated plot, Logan is hired to protect Yukio (Rita Fukushima) due to a possible gangland war. Yukio is an assassin who works for Shingen Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi), who isn’t exactly a pal to Wolverine. Then there’s Mariko Yashida (Tao Okamoto), Shingen’s daugher, who’s trying to decide between her love for our hero and her dad. Yukio also develops an attachment for Logan, so we’re looking at a very interesting triangle. Added to that, there’s Noburo Mori (Brian Tee), a minister of justice who’s about as corrupt as they come, who’s Mariko’s fiance. And into the mix comes Viper (Svetlanda Khodchenkova), a very bad gal who not only wants to hunt down Wolverine but also can’t be harmed by toxins.
There’s one more interesting character to consider. It’s Jean Gray (Famke Janssen), who died in X-Men: The Last Stand. She’s there to help Logan deal with his issues, and does he ever have some issues. Intriguing, huh?
The movie takes place mainly in Japan, where most of it was filmed by Jackman’s company, Seed Productions. And if that action makes you want to show the world your admiration for Wolverine, take a look at our tees about the movie. They’re sure to make you want to wear them day and night. Just not in a dark alley…

Man of Steel T-Shirts are as cool as the Movie!

Who hasn’t heard of Superman? Who isn’t familiar with his history? Well, settle back, fans, because you’ve never heard it told this way before.

The new Warner Brothers Man of Steel movie takes a darker, more edgy approach to the Clark Kent/Superman/Kal-el story. You won’t find Jimmy Olsen in this flick for any comic relief. No, the comic book version that your grandparents recall, and even the TV series starring George Reeves, has been updated and given teeth.

The basics are still there, though. Superman (Henry Cavill) is found by Martha and Jonathan Kent (Diane Lane and Kevin Costner) and they become his parents. No dysfunctional family life here; their son Clark is raised with love and taught to respect others and their rights.

After Clark’s grown and is working at the Daily Planet with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne), enter a menace to every man, woman and child on Earth, General Zod (Michael Shannon), also a survivor of the planet Krypton’s explosion. Along with him to wreak havoc on Earth is Faora (Antje Traue), another survivor. Zod is as evil as Superman is good, and as endowed with the same super powers, so for Superman the ensuing battle won’t be a simple matter of looking through walls to find the bank robbers or flying through the air to catch fleeing kidnappers.

Upon its release, the movie will be shown in the conventional mode as well as in 3D and at IMAX theaters, so you’ll have to figure out which way you want to see it — or see it in all three versions and impress your friends.

And if all that action gets you really revved up, you might decide you need a t-shirt that expresses your “way to go, Superman!” attitude. If so, we’ve probably got just the shirt you’re looking for. So take a look (and you won’t have to have x-ray vision for it, either), and pick out something from our Man of Steel collection.

Or if you haven’t seen the movie yet, or you just love Superman, grab yourself a shirt and feel the power. Kryptonite-free, of course.

Iron Man 3 is around the corner and shirts are here!

Just when Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) thought he could enjoy some down time with his gal pal Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) following his exploits in The Avengers, everything in his personal life is put at the mercy of the merciless Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). And thus the latest tale of Iron Man begins.

Walt Disney Studios brings us the latest installment of our hero, pitting Iron Man against Mandarin in a test of wills that stretches Stark’s resolve and instinctive action to the breaking point. With so much hanging in the balance, he must not only match wits with Mandarin, but he has to be resourceful enough to defeat the villain. Because this time, if he slips up, he could lost much more than he could ever recoup: he could lose Pepper.

As in the previous two Iron Man movies, the action is hot and hard-hitting. Who could expect anything less from such a hero? And there is also depth to the character that doesn’t leave you wondering if he is only a cardboard figure who just stepped out of the funny pages. No, Stark has qualms about his abilities, wondering if he’s the one behind his previous successes, or if it’s that iron armor he wears, showing us that even a guy who can take out the bad guys without getting himself taken down can have self-esteem issues.

Most of the film was shot in North Carolina, with some being done in Los Angeles, Florida, and China. Jon Favreau and Don Cheadle are back again as Happy Hogan and James Rhodes, and there are several newcomers to the cast, namely Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, and James Badge Dale. Wow, what a lineup, huh?

And get this, gang: the movie’s in 3D. That’s over two hours (129 minutes, if you want to get technical) of up close and personal action the way only Iron Man can deliver it. Not too shabby, huh? So if you want to do it up right, get yourself an Iron Man shirt and get in line for the movie. Just save some popcorn for me.

So, Who is Superman?

Classic Superman T-Shirt

Who is this guy flying at full speed over skies? If you think it’s a bird or a plane, look again, it’s Superman! We get questions on where we get the shirt ideas for Superman. We believe he represents the true American spirit – the will to triumph regardless what the odds are, the integrity and selflessness to save others. So we want to take a few moments to highlight his early biography. His story starts out with his escape from the planet Krypton as its sole survivor. Jonathan and Martha Kent find him as an infant inside the vessel that brings him to their farm in Smallville, Kansas. The Kents name the infant Clark and raise him as their own son. As Clark grows older his Kryptonian body begins developing superhuman abilities. After finding out about his arrival to Earth, he leaves Smallville to study at Metropolis University. Ultimately, he is forced to use his powers in public to prevent the crash of a NASA space-plane. Clark then obtains a job as a reporter for the Daily Planet by turning in his first detailed story about Superman. He faces many enemies, most significant of which is Brainiacs, Lex Luthor, and Dr. Doom. Superman lives by the traditional moral values he learned from his foster parents. In his adventures, he always promotes “truth, justice, and the American way,” while proving over and over that he is a true selfless hero, capable of mustering necessary bravery and self-sacrifice to right a wrong or save a life. We have so many shirts celebrating the Man of Steel.
