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:
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.
It certainly is promising to be a Superhero year at the movie theater. Big ones coming out in a fast and furious pace:
1. Iron Man 3
Tony Stark as portrayed so well by Robert Downey Jr as the self-proclaimed “genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist,” is back in theaters in Iron Man 3 on May 3. This time he is getting beat up by supervillain the Mandarin, brought to the big screen for the first time by Ben Kingsley. He likes his jokes but this time is in risk of losing everything — perhaps including his girlfriend and levelheaded counterpart Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).
2. Man of Steel
Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel is set go off on June 14. I have been reading mixed opinions on this movie. It appears that Zack Snyder is covering his story with a soft and human-like lens. Henry Cavill’s suit seems like higher tech than the expensive spandex version in earlier superman movies.
3. The Wolverine
Hugh Jackman returns as the mutant with the adamantium claws in “X-Men” movie set in Japan. Directed by James Mangod, who has movies like “Girl, Interrupted” and the underrated Western “3:10 to Yuma.” This is a first superhero movie by the acclaimed director and i will wait to see it before we count it in all-timers. The trailer gives the indication of a action filled film though. Bring it on!
4. Thor – The Dark World
The hammer-wielding God of Thunder is back in “Thor: The Dark World.” The movie pits the short-tempered Asgardian prince against an ancient race of Dark Elves, led by the villain Malekith. We do not know yet how it will turn out in the movie, but Marcel Comics usually portrays him as a smart, fast super villain with many tricks. I think this movie will be a blast!
Speaking of Superhero, it does not matter who is your favorite, our superhero t-shirts selection has the best of all. Stop by and check out the latest at teesnthings.com. A few of the populars are:
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.
