    Anyone else pick up on all of the references to Lost and 'find815.com' littered in the Marvel books this week? I saw the one in Captain America (on the TV report) and thought that the artist was a fan of the show or something, but then there's all of the references at the end of Ultimate X-Men and even a Driveshaft poster in USM. Plus it was the week of the season premier and everything.

    Did Marvel just take product placement to a whole new level?

    Shit, i hadn't caught that. Looked again at UXM and i'll be damned if there isn't some shit going on!

    Seems like Marvel's continuing their ad-placements after all. It did work (sort of) with Ant-Man and the Old Spice adverts =/.
    This seems much more subtle though and considering it's splattered all over their range, it's not that bothersome unlike the one in Ant-Man that they did on almost every bloody panel.

    ultimate wolvie vs hulk writer is one of the head writers for the show, he stated the actual number of people the hulk killed, 812 or something. it was the flight number of the original plane or one of the planes or something.

    i've never seen a single episode, it looks retarded.

    Just read the New Avengers Annual, too, there's a truck with the Oceanic logo (fake airline company from the show) in it being used by SHIELD agents. Jeeeeeez :rolleyes:

    I haven't seen it, but from what you guys describe it doesn't sound bad. I don't mind product placement if it is done in the background, etc. As long as I don't have to read about how Wolverine switched from beer to Diet Coke because of the great taste and low calories.
