If there’s one thing I learned during my days as a commuter, it’s that people love bumper stickers. Whether they’re showing off their politics, religion, or just the fact that they’re really, really into Iron Maiden, people love ’em — and the same holds true for your favorite super-heroes and villains.

But if you’re a costumed crook or crusader, a simple “Horn Broken, Watch for Finger” isn’t going to cut it. That’s why today, I’ve got a few super-hero bumper stickers custom made to fit the super-hero (and super-villain) lifestyle!

Who would’ve thought killing Jason Todd via a phone-in poll would’ve been so controversial?
Oddly enough, Frank Castle has this one right next to “I Brake For Kittens” and “Mean People Suck.”
Spotted on Amadeus Cho’s vespa, shortly before it was vaporized by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.

If you’re not fluent in the language of the Legion of Super-Heroes, then either hover over this one for the translation, or go back to Rimbor!
