— February 19, 2011 — Pop Culture
This top list of superhero spin-offs will inspire fond memories of growing up watching and pretending to be super-powered beings. Saturday morning cartoons, action figures and costumes all helped fuel a deep connection to these superhuman characters.

From superhero dating sites to crime-fighting fashion, these superhero spin-offs will have you reminiscing about childhood memories.

Implications - Superheros have been integral in many people's childhood and brands are looking to continue that sentiment with a variety of products. These supreme beings often invoke power, status and fantastical elements many have dreamed of. While companies can't provide superhero abilities, they can still give consumers a variety of apparel, toys and gadgets that may bring their fantasy one step closer.
