BATWING
Meet Mega Man

We found him, we found Mega Man himself!

Turns out he spends his spare time fighting crime and stuff – it’s not all about energy efficiency. Unless of course his super cool blue suit has solar panels on the back to power the jet pack (disclaimer, there may not actually be a jetpack).

Keep your eyes peeled for him scouring the streets for villains to vanquish and bulbs to recycle.

On a serious note, I think it’s time for all companies to go the superhero route. I vote for He-Man, the next master of the lighting universe.

This bat is willing to take on most challenges, but selling CFLs in the US could be a risk too far. While restrictions on the sale of incandescents in the UK brought grumbles from the usual sources complaining that fluorescents were the lighting equivalent of straight bananas, across the pond the move has drawn the unnerving attention of the shouty conservative right wing.
