There are a number of that I’m personally psyched about: a pirate flag, for all of my Black Sails wants; a bagel, which occurs to be my favourite meals; a mango, which can absolutely come to have some kind of sexual connotation and take up a outstanding place in our cultural lexicon.
However for our functions, we’re most thrilled to see a collection of super-powered figures.
