So you can crush rocks with your bare hands or telekinetically lift a sinking ship. Admirable as your powers may be when used for good, they just won't get your name in the news cycle as quickly or as persistently as if you had a really great catchphrase.

That's where we come in. While you were at the gym working out (or in the lab experimenting with radiation or what have you), we here at Catchphrase-in-a-Box went to college and earned degrees in advertising. We will work with you, one on one, to develop a first-rate catchprase, a list of wry puns for you to say upon the capture of your opponent(s), an ear-catching name for your mode of transport, or a clever acronym for your organization. Whatever your public relations needs are, we can handle them.

Our legal department will also help with trademarking your new catchphrase and in return ask for just 10% of the proceeds from any future endorsements. Offer valid only in the Milky Way galaxy.

(Superheroes only. We don't work with villains.)

       What was the name of that Will Smith movie? - for not working with villains.

       Hancock had an advertising guy, but no catch phrases. He mostly helped with polishing behavior and PR.   

       I can't really judge this one without some samples though. What up?

       I have often wondered about catch phrases of superheroes in other languages. They must have them. I am sure they would still be appealing in translation. Particularly I would like to see catch phrases of Arab superheroes since it seems to me the Arabs have a gift for trash talking.
