In 1996, Marvel took all their most popular heroes and made them look metallic. Yes, metallic. Look at the highlights and low-lights in hulks pants. They are metal. Look at the reflection in Spiderman’s bulge. It’s metallic too. Iron Man? Well, he’s always been metallic, but he’s even more metallic now. I guess Marvel went bankrupt in taste and as well as bankrupt in money.
Speaking of taste, let me tell you about Marvel Heroes Popping Candy W/Lollipop. Hmmm, how do I put this: Oh yeah, it sucks! First off the complementary lollipop is in shape of a ‘thumbs-up’ hand. That’s lazy theming, dudes. Is a Spiderman shaped sucker too much to expect to come out of a Spiderman shaped bag? Apparently so, according to the schlock-misters at The Royal Candy Company.
Also, what is up with Iron Man being ‘Blue Raspberry’ flavored? I know Iron Man is hot right now, but that spot and flavor should have been reserved for Captain America. I am so angry I am going to intentionally splash the first person I see walking along the side of the road in the rain. I want you to hurt like I hurt. PS the candy tastes like soap.
