In the summer of ’89, literally everything was coming up Batman, from our pasta to our McDonald’s toys to our breakfast cereal.  If memory serves, Batman’s cereal was nothing more than Cap’n Crunch with additional sharp edges to rip the flesh of your mouth, but it was worlds better than the Ninja Turtles’ Life cereal knockoff, featuring pizza-shaped marshmallows.  Thankfully, they weren’t pizza FLAVORED, but they were nonetheless not good.  Though a number of cereal mascots are superhumans, there aren’t nearly as many superhero cereals, leading to today’s part-of-a-complete-breakfast query…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Hellboy. you can imagine all the little trinkets, sigils, cthulhus, mignola skulls, etc. that they could turn into marshmallows, and of course the crunchy boring cereal component would be the BPRD fist/sword logo.
