If you’re a sucker for comic book characters or from time to time envision yourself a superhero while pumping out reps at the gym, you’re probably too embarrassed to openly admit it. But Under Armour wants you to know that it’s okay to let your freak flag fly. The brand’s new line of Alter Ego compression tees ($60, UA.com) lets you transform your torso into that of Superman, Iron Man, Spider Man, Captain America or the Hulk.
Don’t worry—the workout shirts are just as functional as they are fun. Just like UA’s solid-colored second skins, these more animated offerings support muscles, wick away sweat, and prevent growth of odor-causing microbes.
So pick your power and let the workout beast out of the cage. Or just let the shirt act as a conversation starter for the hot girl on the treadmill next to you. After all, chicks dig funny guys.
