Martha Thomases: Would Batman Drive A Ford?

As a freelance journalist, she has been published in the Village Voice, High Times, Spy, the National Lampoon, Metropolitan Home, and more. For Marvel comics she created the series Dakota North. Martha worked as a researcher and assistant for the author Norman Mailer on several of his books, including the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Executioner's Song, On Women and Their Elegance, Ancient Evenings, and Harlot's Ghost.

  1. Minor point: White Collar films in New York City, not Toronto. So Neal Caffery is actually driving his Ford Taurus around the Big Apple, not Taranna pretending to be Enn Why See. :)

      If memory serves, in the original incarnation of the (bwa-ha-ha) Justice League International, the Martian Manhunter had a “weakness” for Oreo cookies.
      Apparently, someone at Nabisco found out about this, and thought the company should be receiving compensation for use of their trademarked product name.
      After its initial run, all subsequent outings of the JLI had Oreo cookies replaced by Choco cookies (which, for me at least, were not as funny).

    Remember the ads in comics for the monkey sea-horses? How about the ads for Mr. Atlas? I’m only surprised that we never saw ads for the Chia pet! :-)

    And of course, let’s not forget the product placement in MAN OF STEEL.
