Part of being a kid in the ‘70s and ‘80s was imagining ourselves as a super hero from comic books or cartoons. We tied blankets and towels around our necks, wore our underwear on the outside of our pajamas, proudly displayed our Underoos undershirts on our sunken chests, and even donned masks as we jumped out of swings, exhibited superspeed by running in slow motion, and performed many other mighty acts worthy of these classic characters.
This week, shazbazzar and JediShua mix Spider-Man with Batman, the Hulk with the Flash, Captain America with Shazam, and Magneto with Titanium Man. Yes, it’s unlikely, but with some cool hero tunes that match these cool hero toons, even Rocket Raccoon soon will swoon. (No, I didn’t use a rhyming dictionary for that — I’m just that good.)
Mondays can be super when you’re joining your EarBuds for pop-culture songs about familiar and obscure Super Heroes and Villains punctuated by a few actual show themes.
