“Yo quisiera ser el Hulk y te protejo… Superman para exhibirte el Universo.”
Romeo Santos wants to be a superhero. In his latest single, “Héroe Favorito,” the 35-year-old bachata star sings about his desire to have the super powers of heroes such as Superman, Spider-Man and The Hulk. You know, so he can protect his lover and show her the universe. Listen closely, though, and you’ll notice he’s also thinking like a villain:
Estoy planeando un secuestroYou’re planning a kidnapping? What happened to “With great power comes great responsibility”?
Para robarme tu amor
Mis estrategias no marchan
Y crece la imaginación
Anyway, if you’re wondering who designed the snazzy superhero costume Santos is wearing on the cover for the single, it was Marvel Custom, a marketing agency owned by Marvel Comics. According to Billboard, Santos was excited and apprehensive about becoming a superhero: “At first, to be honest, I was skeptical. Could it look corny, me in a suit?”
