So…last night I kept hearing about this “top secret event” that was going to take place this morning, something involving Stark Industries (as in Tony Stark) and the Gillette Razor. Of course it had to do with the upcoming release of “Age of Ultron”, so you know they were gonna do something big. Turns out that they had staged a “takeover” of the Gillette labs by Tony Stark, which resulted in the creation of a number of razors that were inspired by four of the Avengers, namely Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor. (It’s beyond me why the Hulk would even need a razor. Does he even think about shaving?)
As far as marketing stunts go, this one will make you chuckle:
Of course, this got me thinking that we’d be getting some cool, superhero razors. Alas it was not to be. Way to get my hopes up guys!

(BTW, if you followed one of my favorite geek gals Stephanie Cooke on Twitter (@HelloCookie) she live-tweeted from the event, including getting pics of the “surprise guest”.)
If you’re wondering why there’s no Black Widow razor, that’s explained in the digital comic book produced by Marvel Comics.
