Ok…. so did you all know that I have a serious office supply problem? I LOVE office supplies!! I have a special affinity for notebooks, lead pencils and pens. I have way too many. But then again, you can never have too many pens. Although I’m surrounded in technology I still have not let go of my love of putting pen to paper. I write lists…ALL THE TIME. It is much easier for me to keep track of what I’m doing if it is actually on paper. I know I’m not the only one.

When CROSS reached out and asked me to check out the Century II Marvel Collection, I thought “A Cross pen? Well Yes! Ironman? Well YES!” CROSS, whom we know makes some of the finest writing instruments, teamed up with Marvel to launch a series of featuring some of our favorite Superheroes in the Marvel universe. Father’s Day is coming up. You can get Dad (or yourself) cool pens that showcase Iron Man, Captain America, and Spider Man. I may consider gifting this to my husband… maybe. However, I think I may be the bigger Iron Man fan. Because… Robert Downey, Jr…. swoon!


You might be thinking, “What on earth can you have to say about a pen?” But, let me tell you… a nice pen can make a huge difference in whether or not something gets done.


Ever since I started typing more, I get nervous when I write. One thing that I dislike is attempting to write with a pen that feels like it is scratching the paper. To me it is the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. If I encounter one like that I will get up and find a different pen, or I will decide “I will just type it.” However, if I’m using a pen that I enjoy writing with then I will find things to write.


The pens are available in two different styles to fit a range of budgets. The Tech2 series, which transforms from a ballpoint pen to a stylus for use on tablets and mobile devices is available for only $45. The higher-end Century II series is finished in a high-gloss lacquer. It includes a collectible, character-specific romance card and is available for $112.50 on Amazon. And did I mention that even the box is beautiful?

Whether the Dad in your life is your husband, son, or father… a Marvel #SuperPen makes a unique gift. Learn more at Cross.com.
