Scarlett Johansson (Bauer Griffin) Scarlett Johansson stars as secret agent Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, in The Avengers.
"Get ready for thrills, frills & espionage," announced San Francisco-based Benefit Cosmetics
in a press release Thursday. In partnership with Marvel Custom Solutions, the beauty brand has created SpyGal, "the FIRST EVER beauty-inspired comic book hero."
According to Benefit, "Marvel, the world's top storytellers, helped us bring our action hero SpyGal to life." The "wise-cracking, pore-zapping persona" was inspired by the company's POREfessional pore minimizing primer
It seems the launch of SpyGal couldn't come at a better time. After seeing Scarlett Johansson's smart and sexy portrayal of Marvel Comics' Black Widow in The Avengers
, we're all craving a little more escapist espionage. And writer James Asmus (Uncanny X-Men, Captain America
) and artist Phil Noto (Avengers: The Origin, X-Men Origins
) were part of the team hoping their character with the pore-zapping ray gun and touch-up pro case will hit the mark.
The comic, "undercover...and over the top," is currently available at Benefit cosmetic counters
. Fans can also use the Mavel AR
app to access video content "from the glamorous world of makeup."
