By the hammer of Thor! As if Case-Mate didn't already offer an array of iPhone cases boasting both special style powers and superhuman strength, they've now released the Case-Mate Marvel Collection, which consists of 15 superhero-centric models for comic book enthusiasts and pop cuture fanatics alike.
The Case-Mate Marvel collection can be divided into five categories, each centered on a Marvel character or crime-fighting unit: Thor, Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, and Captain America. Featuring authentic Marvel illustrations, the iPhone cases will protect your smartphone, much like the heroes depicted on their exteriors protected planet Earth.
The Spider-Man collection, for example, includes three iPhone designs: "Flight," in which he's depicted leaping off of tall buildings, with long spiderwebs shooting out of his fingertips to ensure his safe descent (as shown last above); "Dive," in which the arachnid-human hybrid plummets down, head first, as if diving into the ocean's depths; and "Victory," in which Peter Parker's alter ego is shown standing in front of the Green Goblin, Chameleon, and Doctor Octopus, presumably toasting his triumph over these villainous characters.
The X-Men collection includes three of the most colorful and dynamic designs: first, there's "Battle," in which Wolverine, Storm, Angel and Jean Grey are shown facing off against Iceman (shown second from top); "Shred," in which Wolverine's wields his hatchet-like claws mercilessly while battling an enemy; and "Conquer," in which Gambit and Angel stand against a fiery backdrop, presumably the explosive results of Gambit's ability to change latent energy into kinetic one.
The three Thor cases are also impressive, particularly "Hammer" (shown third from top), in which the Nordic warrior raises his Mjolnir hammer, a lightning storm lighting up the sky behind him. In the brutal "Destroy" design, meanwhile, Thor rumbles with the assistance of Iron Man, both having teamed up to form The Avengers. In the "Blast" case, meanwhile, we see a close-up of the blond god, his mouth agape as if he were shrieking a combat call, his blue eyes bloodshot with rage, and his silver helmet with the wing details positioned atop his head.
Another three cases were designed in honor of Iron Man and Captain America, respectively, each showcasing the superhero of choice in action, with Tony Stark slipping into his armored suit and unleashing his repulsor blast as needed and Captain America clutching his star-emblazoned shield while dodging enemy fire.
Each case in the Case-Mate x Marvel collection retails for $40 and stands as a true collector's item, particularly for those of you with an appreciation for the classic battles versus good and evil staged in comic books since their inception. Visit Case-Mate.com to buy.
