culture thingy  
I have a Superman t-shirt with the big S on the front. I've also got a Batman t-shirt. I feel...somewhat self-conscious wearing these shirts in this country (particularly the Superman one, because it is So! Blue! and So! Red! and So! Yellow!), because people (especially women) don't seem to wear these sorts of things here.

However.

Last time I wore the Batman t-shirt, as we were getting off the train, a two year old boy in front of us looked back at me from his father's arms and started bouncing up and down and saying, "Batman! Batman, Dada, Batman!" and pointing excitedly at me. And this afternoon on my walk I came upon a three year old girl and her mother and as I approached the little girl said, "Superman! Superman! That lady's a Superman!"

It's possible these things make it rather worth being a weird American female who wears American Icon t-shirts in a furrin country. :)

(Also, I wore the Batman shirt to the Bon Jovi concert, and as we were walking by the thousands toward the stadium, the college boys who lived along the street who were standing out front watching the procession and drinking beer and heckling people, began to sing the old Batman tv show theme song, which I thought was just fantastic. :))

Ooh! I hadn't thought of that!

When the twins show up, I can dress them in superhero outfits. It'll be *so* *cute*!

I own a t-shirt with the slogan I WEIGH THE SAME AS A DUCK written on it. I've had some fun random encounters with other Monty Python fans when I wear it.

Those two encounters are MORE than worth any weirdness, I think.

I love my comic book t-shirts!
People always get a click when I wear my black rimmed plastic framed glasses, supes t-shirt and business blazer.
What really throws people is when I wear my Supes hoodie with a Batman t-shirt underneath ;) .
Hot Topic (online even) sells an 'adult line' of comic book Tees that you should check out if you haven't already.
