Robert Downey Jr. probably has nothing to worry about since Julio Jones already has a high-paying job playing wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons. But you have to admit that he looks like he’d kick a lot of butt as Iron Man.
That image is from the cover of the current Eastbay catalog, and it’s promoting the Under Armour Alter Ego line, which we’ve written about before. The Alter Ego Iron Man top will set you back $59.99, but it’s undeniably cool with printing on both sides, incorporates anti-odor and moisture-wicking technologies (take that, Tony Stark!) and has a perfect five-star rating from user reviews on Eastbay so far. You can also find Superman, Batman, Flash, Captain America, Spider-Man and Punisher compression tops, some of which are designed to look like their actual costumes and others which simply include the hero’s logo on the front.
Other Alter Ego products include cleats, socks and football gloves, though most of those may actually be more useful if you … well, played football. The shirts you could get away with just wearing, though you’re not going to look like Jones does modeling them unless you spend a lot of time in the gym. Best of luck with that!
Bam Smack Pow needs you! If you’ve always wanted to write about anything related to comic book super heroes, this is your big chance. We’re looking for writers to cover anything that features super heroes: movies, TV, cartoons, video games, toys, cosplay, and of course, comics. Experience is helpful, but passion is the biggest prerequisite. The positions are unpaid, but your work will be exposed to the whole Fansided network and its monthly audience of millions. If you want to join us on this journey, contact Nick Tylwalk at [email protected] or follow our Twitter feed @bamsmackpow.
