I LOVED Underoos as a kid. I know I had Spidey, Iron Man, Cap, Bat Man, Aquaman, and Superman for sure.

I would run around pretending to be superheroes all day. My mom took towels and sewed Batman and Superman symbols on them and they became my capes.

Sometimes, I liked them so much, that I'd wear multiple pairs at the same time so I could "change" from one hero to another by simply stripping off a pair. :oops:

When we went on vacation to my Grandmother's house, there was a girl next door who had Wonder Woman and Batgirl, and we'd BOTH be running around outside. :lol:

And these were the COOL Underoos from the late 70's that actually looked like the costumes, not the lame ones that came later.

So fess up, who had Underoos and grabbed trashcan lids to fight Nazis as Captain America?

Loved my Underoos!

I know I had Batman, Superman, and Spiderman.
I might have had Aquaman but I can't remember...

I know I DID NOT have Wonder Woman ...

My brother had Batman, I had the Flash, and we both had Dukes of Hazzard underoos. I didn't run around outside in my underwear or anything, but we both wore the t-shirts all the time. Those blue undies became part of my brother's Batman Halloween costume one year.

I had Batman, Superman, and Spiderman- and then of course the "lame ones" like Darth Vader.

I had a bunch myself.

As a kid, I loved Robin. The store must have been out of my size and my parents bought me what must have been the largest size. The shirt came down to my knees and I was never able to wear the underwear. :lol:

I had Superman and Green Lantern. Somebody probably got me Supes but I remember searching for GL until I found him.

I wore the briefs as regular underwear but the tops made for awesome t-shirts.

This makes me feel really old. I bought underroos for my kids... *sigh*

And for my grandkids...

But I do have a ton of superhero underwear thanks to my local Wal-Mart (the store I love to hate). Justice League, Batman, Flash, Superman (3 different ones), Captain America, Spiderman and Wolverine...

I know I had Spider-Man and Luke Skywalker X-Wing pilot. I think I also had Superman if memory serves me. Let's be honest, if they were available in adult sizes, I'd probably buy em! :lol:

Now that DarthVeach mentioned it, I remember having Luke X-Wing as well. It was orange with the printed circuits and hoses from his flight gear. I never dug that one as much for some reason.
