The Avengers have assembled some weird products

Super-stuff: Carry your coins in a Groot-faced wallet, or sprinkle some salt with Captain America's head. If Marvel can put a face on it, you can buy it.

An infinity of bizarre Avengers products

Earth's Mightiest Heroes are also Earth's Mightiest Marketers. 

With Black Panther breaking box-office records, and Avengers: Infinity War stirring up news even before it opens, it's only natural the super-powered characters would be popping up on every product imaginable. Thanos kinda looks like a giant California Raisin that lost a scratch fight to his cat, but his Infinity Gauntlet is a gem among products. And whether in baby or teen form, Groot's tree-mendously cute face is popping up everywhere.

From waffle irons to soup, earrings to hats, here's a super-powered glimpse at how you can make mine Marvel. Let's just say, some are more super than others.

Avengers: Infinity War, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, opens April 27 worldwide.
