This is a series of superheroes reimagined by graphic designer Roberto Vergati Santos as if they were sponsored by famous brands. The sad thing about this is that it's gonna happen. Not if -- when. It's actually probably already been happening. My babysitter won't take me to see superhero movies because she says they're too violent, but was there any branding in any of the latest ones? You don't have to actually wear the brand to be sponsored by it. It could be as simple as having a Happy Meal on the kitchen counter, or driving a fuel efficient and fun-to-drive 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid. See what I just did there? I didn't even get paid for that. I want a beer sponsor.
