DC characters have been known to crossover with some strange properties over their 75 years history: Superman vs PredatorSuperman/TarzanJudge Dredd/Lobo: Psycho-Bikers vs. The Mutants From Hell. This latest crossover might be their strangest.

DC is teaming up with General Mills to create bastardized versions of cereal mascots. The cereals include Honeynut Cheerios/Batman, Trix/Superman, Lucky Charms/Green Lantern, Coco Puffs/The Flash, Cinnamon Toast Crunch/Cyborg, Green Lantern, and Aquaman, and a special edition of Multi-Grain cheerios featuring Wonder Woman.


Additionally, artist Ivan Reis illustrated a large connecting image, with one portion of the image appearing on the back of each box. There will be four DC Comics promotional mini-comics included in the cereals as well, with one of four Justice League stories included in each box.

The cereals are in stores now.
