I have an embarrassing secret to share. I’d seen some trailers of The Green Lantern with the droolicious Ryan Reynolds at the helm a while ago and was really really keen to watch it. At about the same time as the trailers, came The Green Hornet. I think you can see where this is heading… I mean… Hornet… Lantern…
Long story short, I went to watch The Green Hornet, and sat through the movie, wondering if my memory of what Ryan Reynolds looked like had failed me, and where the Green Lantern ring is, and why there was a Chinese sidekick that I did not remember from my Sunday morning Justice League cartoons. It was not until the credits rolled that I went “Oh no! This isn’t The Green Lantern!”
So yes. Embarrassing 😳
Which little anecdote brings me to the launch of the DC Comics Super Heroes Flagship store at Pavilion KL 🙂
DC Comics is what brought us the iconic Justice League of America of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern et al. Comic book super heroes we have all grown up with and with their arch rivals and super villains, we either love or hate 😛

If you are a DC Comics Super Hero fan, or just a fan of the comics and want to get the authentic merchandise, you can head down to the FC Comics Super Heroes flagship store on the 5th floor of Pavilion KL – the biggest DC Comics store in Asia.
Want to pull a Superman/Clark Kent stunt?
I like the T-shirt actually – as did the hordes of screaming girls in the audience. The male model had such an intent, deadpan look, I had to laugh.
Ahem! Supergirl to the rescue! 😀 I was made to wear it as part of the dress code. Lovely and vintage looking Superman/girl/woman tee yes? 😉
And here’s a couple of other outfits you could find at the DC Comics store alongside a replica of the Batmobile and Batpod. Batpod. That’s a bit new to me.
There are regular T-shirts with prints too, not everything is as out there as the first outfit you see although it might come in useful at Halloween eh?
Did you know about this store? And do you plan to watch The Green Lantern? I will! 😀 And this time, I know I won’t make a mistake 😛
The DC Comics Super Heroes Flagship Store is on the 5th Floor of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Bukit Bintang

My bf is a HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE fan of super heroes. And he prefers DC Comics than Marvel Comics. He has a lot of super heroes tshirt. Like, A LOT! Can open kedai already. Tskk. Hehe.
LOL!! Then he would LOVE this new store! 😀
I prefer Marvel superheroes. ^.^ you can’t beat the X men, iron man and the Hulk!! Heh heh heh.
I wonder what would happen if you pit Wolverine against Superman though… Hmmm…
I find Marvel more “modern” while DC Comics were superheroes I grew up with – cartoons, comics, movies, T-shirts LOL! I don’t have a preference either way though. I enjoy them all! Unless Wolverine tipped his claws with kryptonite, I don’t think it’ll affect Superman very much 😛
Hahaha, too funny that you got them mixed up! Actually I would too. There was something happening on the Pavilion stage last weekend when I was there with my sis and I thought they were launching a Ben 10 movie when I saw the Green Lantern poster. That’s worse, right?
Yeah I was sitting throughout the movie wondering why there was no ring, and why it was so slapstick 😛 But Ben 10?! You ARE joking right? 😛
Sadly, I’m not joking.
Conversation went something like this;
Sis : Oooh, what’s that on the stage?
Me : Oh, they are launching a Ben 10 movie!
Sis : What’s Ben 10?
Me : Stuff my nephews watch. It’s Ben 10! He can morph into different characters.
Sis : Er, isn’t that one of the guys from Wolverine?
Me : Ya, ya… he’s gonna be Ben 10!
Oh dear… *falls of chair laughing*
Love batman! The flagship store is awesome, like a superheroes wonderland!!!
It is a fun store that’s for sure!

It was a fun launch actually. I’m glad I went haha!
My knowledge of superheroes were basically limited to Spiderman, Superman and Batman growing up. It was only until I started watching The Big Bang Theory (hilarious! pls watch it if you haven’t yet) did I realise there really was an entire world (school? bunch? don’t know the collective noun for superheroes!) of them.
A hilarious movie? Alright. I gotta find it and watch it! 😀 Thanks!
