RM Updates Mormon Ads with Marvel Comic Characters

[wp_ad_camp_3]
Sean Leslie is a avid comic book fan and self described cinefile. He got his idea of combining Marvel characters with Mormon ads after he had sent a Mormon ad to his niece.

As he states on his website Mormon Cereal

…after I sent her one Mormon Ad I was Googling another one to send her and I kept laughing and cringing at how outdated the images were. Then I came across the Temper Your Temper one and immediately the Hulk jumped into my mind. So I photoshopped the Hulk in and sent it to my niece. The next day I saw the Smart Mouth one and decided to use Deadpool. I put them on my Facebook page and had an overwhelmingly positive response. Friends who were into comics thought they were hilarious and mothers kept saying how much they wanted them for their kids so I decided to keep going and make one a day. I don’t know why Marvel characters seem to translate so well with Mormon Ads, but they do. Maybe now people won’t scoff at kids if they see them reading comics at church.

Here are some of our favorites

  1. please tell me you didn’t reference an R rated movie for a youth Mormon ad

    1. I think it is a good reference since Dead Pool is known for his smart mouth and one of the reasons for the R rating were the 84 F-bombs in the movie.

        1. I am basing all of these on Marvel Comics, not the movies. Deadpool has been around since the early 90s and while he is smart mouth, he is not r-rated.

          1. the kids will only know the movie and it is R rated. couldn’t even take them. might wanna lose that one 🙂

          2. My nephews are obsessed with Deadpool from the Marvel animated series. He has been on the Ultimate Spider-Man, X-Men, and Avengers animated show. Plus an animated movie with Hulk and Wolverine. PLUS Ryan Reynolds first played Deadpool in the Wolverine: Origins movie. Can’t dismiss over twenty years of comic book appearances because of one R-Rated movie.

          3. …to you, maybe. But the joke is that he’s recognizing a character with a foul mouth and has zipped it. So what if that character has had an R-rated movie? That only furthers the point that everyone is aware that Deadpool swears a lot. It was the perfect pick for that Mormonad.

          4. I think it’s a fantastic reference even if the kids only know the movie (though that would depend a lot on the parents…. my kids know Deadpool, but they have no idea there is a movie). It still works, because if the kids DO see the movie and hear the cursing, perhaps the meme would help them see Deadpool in a different light….. 🙂
