Hats Off: New Era x Marvel West Coast Avengers Caps

by on April 2, 2012

Avengers and streetwear fanatics assemble! To kick off the fisticuffs and festivities for Marvel’s universe-shaking crossover event Avengers vs. X-Men, Marvel has teamed up with sultans of streetwear New Era to produce limited edition caps. Midtown Comics in New York City will have 18 East Coast Avengers caps and our very own Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles will have 18 West Coast Avengers caps in a classic Dodger blue colorway. With only 36 hats in existence – 18 of each colorway – these are the fashion equivalent of Infinity Gems. Luckily, we were able to snag a sneak peek at the hero-worthy headwear before they go on sale this Tuesday at 8PM at Meltdown’s Avengers VS X-Men launch event with special guest Ed Brubaker. You can believe us when we say that these will fetch a pretty penny, True Believers, and are a must-have for any Marvel diehard.

What do you think? Will you be trying to get your hands on one or will you send your legions of Doombots to scour E-Bay in the aftermath?
