Chara-Covers Mutate iPhones Into Superheroes!

The first wave of Chara-Covers instantly shows everyone which popular heroes and villains from Marvel and DC comics are your all-time favorites. Go, Team Venom!

 

Chara-Covers are a series of rugged satin coated, rubber cases designed to snugly fit the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S models. Each Chara-Cover comes in two separate parts, the character’s head and its body, are two separate parts that are slid over the top and bottom of your iPhone that are securely pushed together with a satisfying click. The chunky cases provides the iPhone plenty of padding in case of unplanned drops, so if your imagination is as wild as mine is, you can thank your super hero/baddie pal for saving your device every time you have an accident!

Although functionality always comes first, Chara-Covers wouldn’t be worth a cent if they did a poor job selecting and representing our favorite comic book icons, right? In the DC Comics line up, we have Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Joker, Batgirl and the obvious fan-favorite, Harley Quinn. The opening team of Chara-Covers from the Marvel Universe are Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Captain America and everyone’s favorite alien symbiote, Venom. As a huge fan of Marvel’s “Thunderbolts” comic book series, how could I not appreciate a lovably sweet version of the savage, arm-chomping, half extraterrestrial maniac? Answer- I appreciate him very much!

 

With the rising popularity of Chara-Covers, the next big question on everyone’s mind is “What characters will become the next Chara-Covers?” My wish list includes Nintendo’s Wario, Greedo of Star Wars fame, and Sabrewulf from Microsoft’s Killer Instinct, but that’s just off the top of my head. By the way, the entire series of both Marvel and DC Chara-Covers can be found on Amazon!

 

Which comic book, videogame, animated series, movie, etc. characters do you want to see transformed into cuddly, yet strong Chara-Covers? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
