The iFanboy Fragrance Challenge

With all the talk around iFanboy of the line of Marvel colognes (we can’t decide if its awesome or awful), something completely missed our attention:

SUPERMAN For Men By MARVEL eau de toilette

We were inspired by DC and Marvel putting aside their differences to engage in joint licensing and are now issuing The iFanboy Fragrance Challenge! Click through for more.

Here’s what you’ve got to do:

Get the cologne, and or perfume, and wear it out, and see if people like it! Come back here and report your results. Send in pictures. It’s that simple!

Boys can sidle up to girls, and girls can get the “Storm” fragrance and see if it tempts men!

If you’re already with someone — wear it but don’t tell your significant other and see how/if they respond!

“What is that? It smells like wet dog and beer…”

“It’s Logan, my new fragrance.”

Go forth and prosper.

  1. “This carries notes of bergamot and petitgrain this has hints of Orange Blossom, with woody tones complemented with a touch of vanilla and musk.”

    C’mon! That sounds great!

    It’s Hulk!

  2. The Hulk fragrance has been ordered.

    It’s inteesting. The Hulk and Spider-Man fragrances have the same scent description (on Amazon at least).

  3. The Hulk and Spider-Man fragrances have the same scent description (on Amazon at least).

    Conor and I laughed mightily at this.

  4. They’re all the same! All of them!

  5. The only way that oculd have gotten better was if the Storm one had the same description as well.

  6. Soylent Green is people!

  7. I got a whiff of the Captain America perfume in my local comic book shop a few weeks ago (my LCS owner is a Captain America nutter!) and I have to say, it

  8. I’m really curious as to see if anyone will be able to find this stuff IN STORES. I mean, a comic shop is one thing….but for some reputable (I’m assuming) distributor to look through a cataloge, see the cologne, and think to himself, “What an untapped market!” seems entirely ludicrous.

    I’ll look…there’s no telling what I may find, though.

  9. Here’s what these characters scents should smell like:

    Hulk-smells like gamma radiation
    Captain America-smells like death
    Iron Man-smells like douchebag
    Lex Luthor-smells like rogaine
    The Joker-smells like crazy
    The Punisher-smells like a wannabe Captain America
    Ultimate Spider Man-smells like teen spirit

    Any other anyone wants to add?

  10. I’m gonna get someone the Captain America one if I can find it…

  11. “Captain America-smells like death”

    I thought Captain America might smell like Apple Pie, fireworks, baseball, and combat.

    A winning combination.

  12. I think it would be a hoot if they took the label super seriously. Like if they did ads like Elizabeth Taylor’s “Diamonds” or something.

    Instead “Hulk by Marvel” it should be something like “Anger” by Hulk or “Pun” by Spider-Man.

    Then, they could do inserts in Wizard magazine, which just might get people to finally stop buying it.

  13. Anyone weirded out buy the fact that they’ve got the Spider-Man and Superman scents are listed as “for Boys”? When the heck did kids start wearing cologne?!

    My favorite is the Spider-Man Gift Set. Nothin’ says class like eau de toilette bundled with a crappy radio and headphones!

  14. The kid thing isn’t all that weird. Kids always want to have adult things. I remember having fake shaving kits and shaving cream and stuff like that.

    They have makeup for little girls, and this is pretty much the same thing.

    What’s odd is that the Hulk is for men, and spider-man is for boys, but the description is the same for both. Like there’s an adult out there who won’t use the cologne from the spider-man bottle. “Pssh, that shit’s for KIDS!”

  15. There was someone at my LCS the other day commenting on the Spider-man butter knife circular that fell out of his copy of Wizard magazine. Then I noticed the ad for a Spider-Man kid’s fishing set, complete with rod, reel, tackle box and Spidey-head-shaped flashlight!

  16. What if Top Cow wanted to enter the fragrance market with some based on Mark Millar’s Wanted?

    Shit Monster anyone?

    (on a side note, Kevin Smith’s Dogma would also work.)

  17. You can tell that IFANBOYS have been trolling amazon today.
