RED BULL CANS IN JUSTICE LEAGUE OUTFITS
The Red Bull Superhero Project is a design concept by New York-based Art Director Diego Fonseca.
It’s basic human knowledge that Red Bull tastes like complete caca mixed with vomit (if you don’t think so, you’re either a goddamn liar or your taste buds are playing an evil trick on you), but these packaging redesigns featuring the iconic costumes of DC superheroes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Green Lantern are sick enough that I could see people buying them just to display on their shelves. I’m sure people have displayed lamer things. I have a shelf full of Orbitz. Remember those? The little orbs are totally still floating and there’s even a mail-in rebate for a free movie ticket to see Independence Day starring Will Smith in theaters! No, you can’t have one.

Cast of Parks & Recreation as Justice League Members
Illustrator Vick Trola decided to merge all of the Justice League with the cast of Parks & Recreation for a pretty rad piece of pop. These prints are for sale at Trola’s Etsy shop here. Personally, I would’ve went with Batman for Ben, but it still works.

Cosplay Monday: MegaCon Edition
Excuse the big image drop, but I took a tremendous amount of photos this weekend at MegaCon. I might make a couple of posts today with different cosplays I snagged pictures of. I’ve got too many good ones to hold off on. I can’t upload everything I took a picture of either, guys — there’s just too many to upload.
I actually didn’t get anyone’s info if they were a regular cosplayer, so if you know someone here or if you are actually someone pictured above, drop me an email at cortez (at) albotas (dot) com so I can link you.
Also, fuck. That Black Panther cosplay family is so well done. When I saw that in person, it was surreal. The photo does it absolutely no justice.

‘Injustice' Collector's Edition Comes With This Crazy Batman vs Wonder Woman Statue
From the creators of Mortal Kombat comes Injustice: Gods Among Us, an all new fighting game that pits the heroes and villains of the DC universe against one another. The limited collector’s set package will include the above 13” statue of Wonder Woman strangling Batman atop the Fortress of Solitude as she prepares to bash his nugget in with Superman’s Krypton escape rocket.
The statue is nothing short of amazing, but people on the Internet are still finding a reason to complain. Apparently some folks dig the statue that will be included with PAL versions of the game. What do you think?
I guess I could see North America wanting to tweak it as not to seem too domestic-abus-ish, but I still think the U.S. version is way cooler.
This limited edition package will only be available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Sorry, Wii U.
And if you haven’t seen anything on this game yet, check out some trailers below.

Peep it: Play-Imaginative's 12" die-cast Batman figure
Illustrator Karry Callen made these sweet illustrations of a Superman-esque and Wonder Woman-esque hero busting out of their costume and revealing their superhero underwear. Super embarrassing, of course. These designs are available on Threadless for voting purposes at the moment, so if you like the super man or woman design, or even both, take the time to put a vote on it.
