I’m trying to keep this post as clean as possible, so I’m heavily editing my thoughts on the company that wants to slap its name and intellectual properties over anything and everything for a buck.  On the plus side if you like anything and everything Marvel, you’ll be happy to know that in the spring of 2010, you’ll be able to pick up all sorts of stuff at your local Walgreens.

Characters from Spider-Man Classic, Iron Man Classic, Hulk Classic, Marvel Comics Retro, Marvel Heroes, the Iron Man movie and the Hulk movie properties will grace toys, automotive accessories, pet products, photo department accessories, food gift sets, novelty candy, night lights, snow globes, holiday decorations, table and chair sets, wall decals, tumblers, posters, inflatables, flashlights and other products.

Interestingly, it looks like Hulk cologne won’t be featured in the beauty aisle.

Oh, hey, don’t forget about all that quality Major Spoilers merchandise we have for sale!  Yup, Major Spoilers Mouse Pads, T-Shirts, children’s clothing… no cologne or snow globes yet, but give us time, we’ve only been around for three years, while Marvel has been in the game for 70.

    You know the ironic thing is that I would have killed for all of this Marvel merchandizing when I was a kid, now it’s ubiquitous. I guess it’s good to be king of the comics publishing world. For better or worse…

    And I’m still waiting on a MS coffee mug!

    What do you want on the mug? Major Spoilers Logo, Major Spoilers Kid Logo, or F’Continuity?

    Pet products? … I hope nobody gets me the Spiderman pooper-scooper for Christmas…

    I would by either the MS logo or F’Continuity. I’d buy the the F’Continuity t-shirt but I don’t want my daughter to ask me what “f” stands for;)

      Brother129: I think the answer is obvious – FUN Continuity!

    Or F=Forget… That’s a nice kid-friendly option! It can also be used in situations like “Oh F….orget you, you son of a b….eached whale!” I vote for “F Coffee!” on the mug, with a little MS logo somewhere below that.
