Boost Your Crime-Fighting Abilities with Superpowers in a Can

For those times when your innate mutant abilities simply won't cut it, the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company offers supplemental superpowers in convenient carry-home canisters.

The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company raises funds for the New York chapter of 826 National, a non-profit founded by authors Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida that helps students with creative and expository writing. Each outlet has its own fantastical shop, such as the Echo Park Time Travel Mart we've mentioned in the past.

The Brooklyn shop sells everything from capes to robotic sharks to secret identities, but there's something especially wonderful about the understated packaging of their home-brewed superpowers, which also come in Immortality ("not an effective strategy for putting off student loans"), Chaos ("not as fun as it sounds"), Cloning Fluid ("You'll only have to buy one bottle. Ever."), and Omnipotence.

Man, these guys are great. The best part is the secret door behind one of the sets of shelves, that leads to a library and writing room where kids can learn how to write.

A writing room, I should point out, that has close to A THOUSAND DOLLARS WORTH OF BOOKS, donated by ME, and for the which I was never thanked, but only looked at as though I were some kind of jerk for saddling them with excess inventory.

Still, though, it's a cute store, and a great idea, and I approve of their mission.
