Marvel Announces ‘Ultimate Comic Fan’s TV’
  |  

Marvel has partnered with RTC23 to release “the ultimate comic fan’s TV.” The 22-, 32-, 42- and 55-inch LCDs/40- and 46-inch LED HDTVs feature Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Wolverine, Thor, and other characters on the bottom corners of the frame as well as a themed splash screen that appears for 8 seconds when you turn on the TV.

The smaller LCD sets start out at 720p with a 60Hz refresh rate, 8000:1 dynamic and 3000:1 native contrast with 1 HDMI output and top out at 1080p with 240Hz refresh, 80,000:1 dynamic and 4000:1 native contrast, and 4 HDMI inputs. Prices range from $339 to $1989.

Both the 40- and 46-inch LED sets feature 1080p resolution, 3,000,000:1 dynamic and 5000:1 static contrast, 450 nit brightness and 4 HDMI inputs. Prices are from $1699 to $1989.

These seem like they would be cool at first but once the novelty wears off I’m not sure if I’d want this in my living room. What say you?

  1. Can you say gimmick?
    I agree once it starts to wear thin you are stuck. And 8 seconds for start up time, not in this fast food society.
