What if you had to choose a corporate sponsor for a superhero? Who would it be?

Being a superhero is pretty expensive and these are tough economic times. Peter Parker's webshooters don't grow on trees you know. Batman can only afford to lose so many batarangs before he starts trying to recycle them. Clark Kent can only afford to take so many sick days from the Daily Planet.

There are some superheroes who use corporate sponsors already like Mystery Men's Captain Amazing, Watchmen's Dollar Bill  and Booster Gold, but what about Superman, Batman or Wolverine?

Italian designer Roberto Vergati Santos said, "Imagine if one day capitalism reaches the point, where the big brands starts to sponsor the superheroes. How would this influence their images? Based on this hypothesis, I decided to experiment with some characters, and see what would be the results of such idea."

Do these brands match the heroes? Who would sponsor your favorite superhero?

Batman and Nike? Odd combination.

I'd take Bugatti as a sponsor anytime.

They'd probably need more than one, so that they'd look like those NASCAR drivers with like every square inch covered in ads. That would create numerous issues though as what happens if someone's destroying a Burger King and Iron Man is sponsored by McDonald's? Does he just let it go down?


Incidentally last night I finished, "Dead Links." Great book! Is there going to be a sequel?

Wolverine and Hulk look cool but I can't see Ironman sporting the McDonald's brand. No Way! Thanks for the laughs, you really had me going.

Its kind of a stretch Spacerguy, but he does love a good burger. Glad you got Lulz from it!

I'd take Lamborghini

You're right Jeremy! I never caught that.

Glad you liked "Dead Links!" I'd appreciate it if you left a review for it on Amazon. As for sequels, I do plan to write another book about Amanda Katt in the future. Keep an eye on my blog for more details.
