Super Street brings Wonder Woman’s power, inspiration and sense of equality from comic book pages to Kia’s spirited CUV
Kia Motors America (KMA) has teamed up with DC Entertainment and Super Street magazine to build a head-turning Kia Sportage inspired by Wonder Woman‘s power, inspiration and sense of equality. Unveiled today in conjunction with the 2013 New York International Auto Show, this uniquely customized Sportage signals the continuation of a 10-month, eight vehicle partnership between Kia and DC Entertainment based on the iconic characters that make up the Justice League – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg. An eighth and final vehicle will be an amalgamation of all seven Super Heroes in one. Influenced by the artistry of comic book visionary, Jim Lee, the Justice League-inspired Kia vehicles serve as a force for good in the world by raising awareness for DC Entertainment’s “We Can Be Heroes” giving campaign, a relief effort to bring help and hope to people affected by the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa (www.WeCanBeHeroes.org).
DC Entertainment‘s We Can Be Heroes (www.WeCanBeHeroes.org) is a giving campaign designed to raise awareness and critical funds needed to fight the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. Using the iconic Justice League characters from DC Entertainment – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg – We Can Be Heroes aims to raise funds for the three humanitarian aid organizations working in Africa: Save the Children, International Rescue Committee, and Mercy Corps. In 2012, the campaign raised almost $2 million. These funds delivered help and hope to over 5 million men, women, and children in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia whose lives have been severely affected by drought and famine. In 2013, DC Entertainment will continue to unleash its stories, characters and talent to encourage more people to join the Justice League in the fight against the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa.
