Who Doesn’t Love a Man in Uniform?

Sure, there were some subplots along the way, like truth, justice, the American way, blah, blah, blah, but let’s face it: Comic books were always about sex. No matter who was doing the fighting, attacking, defending, or avenging, the superheroes were always hot. So is a “Super Heroes vs. Super Villains” fetish party really such a stretch?

Think massively muscled torsos in sinew-hugging spandex or voluptuous vixens in leather leggings. They don’t call them graphic novels for nothing. Why wouldn’t an alien come to Earth to defend the “America way”?

If you’re 18 or older, dust off that utility belt and perk up those, um, pecs and get your freak on starting at 9 p.m., like one of the X-Men, at Club X-It (219 N. 21st Ave., Hollywood) for this month’s Electrolust themed event. Tickets cost $10 in advance or $20 (or more) at the door. Visit superheroparty.eventbrite.com, email josepher.is.here@gmail.com, or call 954-822-6350 or 305-942-8267.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
