Can you imagine an ad like that running now?

I vaguely remember when Fun Pals came out. I think it was right around the time I was outgrowing Underoos. I think these kind of took their place, but didn't have the "uniform" look like the Underoos, so they weren't nearly as cool.

Agreed, rob!. This is one of those times I'm glad Aquaman didn't make the cut for the product. lol

Underoos were awesome, basically a super hero costume for little kids. My son wears pajamas that are essentially Spider-Man's costume without mask, gloves, and boots. They even have underarm webbing!

I enjoy Captain Marvel and Aquaman equally. Both are consistently overlooked and/or mistreated by their owner.

Man, how easy and cool would it be to get an Aquaman movie nowadays using technology for shooting deep underwater like in that documentary by James Cameron? All you need is a good script, which seems to be where Warner Bros. fails every time. Can they not throw a billion dollars at Kevin Feige to take charge?!

There isn't a single aspect of this image that is not disturbing. Even the font seems to be eying up its own mother.

Word verification: Moravian hapive. Can you catch that off a bicycle seat?

Great post. Especially since I have the same grudge.
