Greatest Baseball-Related Costume ever.
Found this online. I must one day buy it and then have it framed and placed upon my desk:
Yes, that’s a baseball card of Cal Ripken wearing an Iron Man suit.
Your mind… is now blown.
In Bizarre Baseball Culture, I take a look at some of the more unusual places where baseball has reared it’s head in pop culture and fiction. This is a smaller installment of that.
In the trade paperback entitled The Five Nightmares (by Matt Fraction), Tony Stark AKA Iron Man has traveled to the Congo to investigate a genocidal supervillain organization that may have replicated his technology.
He also is tracking a few other things. Y’know, R&D meetings, messed up satellites….
… and Josh Beckett throwing a no-hitter.
Iron Man = Baseball Fan.
