We’ve been referring to just about any device from the storage category as a “hero” product and it looks like the folks at Dane-Elec took us literally as their upcoming line of USB drives will now feature some of the more famous heroes from the Marvel comic book library.
While the two companies have not yet released the line-up expected to don the outer shell of the USB drives, we have it on good authority the heavy hitters are all expected to be lending their likenesses for this effort – i.e. Spider-Man, The Hulk, Captain America and Thor among others.
The portable thumb drives should be available at retail in the third quarter of 2011 – just in time for the busy back-to-school and holiday shopping seasons. No word yet on capacities or pricing.
