The Marvel Universe is on the printed page, the big screen, and the small screen, so why not on your body? Wait, that came out wrong. Today, Vans revealed the first look at its super "Off The Wall" collection of Marvel footwear, apparel, and accessories. They don't just have sneakers, but sandals, slip-ons, underwear, book bags, socks, hoodies, hats, and shirts; all of them incorporate different heroes and characters from the Marvel mythos. 

While there are more options than there are Avengers in Infinity War, we've singled out five of the coolest options, which will make you an honorary crime-fighter and the envy of all your friends. 

1. Checkerboard Hulk slip-ons:

These are particularly creative because they simulate what happens to Bruce Banner's shoes when he starts turning into the Hulk. You get the look of turning into a giant Gamma monster without having to toss the footwear.

2. The "smorgasbord" shirt:

This shirt gives you a little bit of everyone, letting people know that you're a fan of the Marvel Universe and a basic knowledge of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Spider-Man, and Black Widow.

3. Captain Marvel socks:

Get ready for Carol Danvers' cinematic debut next March with these really rad Captain Marvel socks. We must warn you that they're probably not interwoven with Kree DNA like the real Captain Marvel.

4. Women of the Marvel Universe slip-ons:

There's no shortage of kick-ass females in the world (and cosmos) of Marvel, and these shoes are concrete proof of that. From a first glance, you can make out She-Hulk, the Wasp, Black Widow, and Medusa.

5. The Wakandan track coach jacket:

Do they have high school track coaches in Wakanda? There's no definite evidence, but you can certainly pretend to be one with this jacket. Nevertheless, Vans should issue a disclaimer that it contains no vibranium and therefore will not protect you against rhino or Killmonger attacks.
