Burger King and DC Comics Superhero Cup Holders

In 1988, Burger King and DC comics teamed up to bring us four of their characters as handles of drinking cups (although they called them cup holders). You could get Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Darkseid with the purchase of a kid’s drink. I recently picked up 3 of these at a flea market at a bargain price without the cups, but now I am thinking I wouldn’t mind picking up at least one cup so that I could see what it was like to use them. Online stores are crawling with them, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find what I am looking for (hopefully at a good price).

Here is the commercial that announced this wonderful promotion.
