It’s not all action figures and coloring books for Superman

From a Press Release at the DC Blog
So you think that Superman isn’t the hero for you because he’s too “clean cut". DC thinks you may have the wrong idea about the Man of Steel. While he’s heroic and inspirational, that doesn’t mean he lacks an edge. At least his merchandise doesn't.
If you haven’t yet seen some of the Superman products available at Hot Topic, you just may be in for a surprise.
Check these out …
Would a boy scout wear a belt or use a wallet like that? Of course, truth be told, it’s unlikely Superman would either since we’re pretty sure his costume lacks pockets or belt loops, but man…if it did, you know he’d be rocking them.
Unfortunately, it’s also more or less impossible for Superman to have any piercings. Even if you could somehow manage to pierce his skin, the minute he steps into sunlight they’d close right back up. However, we suspect that if he could, he’d love to sport a set of these.
Or who knows, he may even go for something even more extreme…
Okay, truth, that belly button jewelry is probably more fitting for Supergirl than Superman, or maybe for some of the Man of Steel’s female fans. We know he has a lot of them, and they’re more than happy to show off their fandom (along with their sleeve tattoos)…
But look, the point we’re trying to make here is that Superman appeals to all sorts of people. His fans come in all shapes, sizes, genders and ages and hold all sorts of interests. For some of you, these items may be too extreme, for others, they may not be crazy enough. But we think there’s one thing we can all agree on—Superman is awesome.
And also that these Vinyl Pop! Man of Steel figures are about the most awesome thing we’ve ever seen. I mean look at them. They’re soooo cute!
You can find all of this stuff at your local Hot Topic, or just click here to find these great items and lots more on their website. While you’re at it, be sure to enter their sweepstakes to win an excellent replica Kryptonian Command Key. All you have to do is “like” their Facebook page and be a Superman fan.
