Marathons bring out all kinds of people.
In the case of the 2009 Marine Corps Marathon, that includes a mix of superheroes, demons and other ghouls, including — you guessed it — Satan.
Don’t take my word for it, though. Here’s visual proof, via Flickr user Bobby Gill:
That’s really a lovely pair of shorts that Satan has on, I think.
Looking for more? How about everyone’s favorite superhero, The Flash?
See that sign? Even superheroes thank their Marines.
Then, there’s this next guy. I have no idea what prompts a person to dress like this in public, but it’s really quite impressive.
OK, help a brother out: Who IS this next guy? Is this a costume of significance and I just don’t get it? Please explain…
Were you at the marathon? Take any similarly ridiculous photos? Drop me a line at dlamothe (at) militarytimes.com.
UPDATE: A reader suggests that our anonymous superhero in photo No. 4 may very well be paying homage to the Space Marines of “Halo” fame. That sounds entirely plausible, and also makes me suspect it’s an actual Marine inside the suit.
