I don't have anything bad to say about this costume, but I would pay cash money for his catch phrase to be "Watch out, boys, Mento the Fresh Maker is here!"
I hope Mento soon joins up with his villainous partners "Snicker the Satisfier", muscle-bound "Altoid the Curiously Strong", and the crazy-making mentalist "Almond Joy" (because sometimes you feel like a nut ... ) at their secret lair, "The Candy Rack".

Yeah, the costume’s actually pretty good (except for the hideous crotch-lines). But yeah, I’d hire somebody to come on screen for a few seconds and do a “mento” ad in that getup.
Ever get the feeling writers run low on baddies to put against the supes?
Got a laugh out of this!
I’m just wondering…
Is his ‘one weakness’* going to turn out to be getting drenched with two-liter Pepsi taking away his powers?
*(standard requirement for all heroes and villains – Superman has Kryptonite, Green Lantern has (had) yellow, etc)
I know mentos power. he shrinks to a delicious fruity disc shaped thing, jumps into a bottel of diet coke and flies 17 feet*
* Recrded distanxce with one orange mento and 500ml of diet coke.
I would have thought that the “Candy Rack” was what he’d call his girlfriend…behind her back. 😉
