I know this doesn't have anything to do with any particular movie, but with the multitude of superhero movies in the past decade I thought I'd put it out here. A buddy of my was contemplating the mysteries of the universe one night when he couldn't sleep. What question was on his mind? What kind of socks would superheros wear? Well, I couldn't leave this question unanswered, so I made a list. Yes, these are all legitimate brands and they all make socks of some sort.
