Stark Industries takes over Gillette’s R&D operation and uses its trusted technology to help men achieve an epic shave. In what may be the most perfect union of superpowers, Gillette and Stark Industries have joined together with one goal in mind: to create one of the best razors in the world. In fact, Gillette has allowed Stark Industries to take over its R&D department at World Shaving Headquarters to deliver an epic shave using Avengers-inspired technology.
Of course, Stark Industries is no stranger to the toughest technological challenges, having conquered robotics, aeronautics, fringe science, and weaponry. Yet, the task at hand is a tough one: setting out to build a razor that rivals Gillette’s best razor to date, the Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology. The union of superpowers, Gillette and Stark Industries was formed to celebrate the launch of Marvel’s highly anticipated film Avengers: Age of Ultron, which launched in Sydney last week – before anywhere else in the world.
“Gillette has developed one of the best shaving technologies around, but we wanted to see how Avengers- inspired technology would work in a razor,” said Abe Zimmer of Stark Industries.
The Gillette/Stark Industries collaboration has already taken the city of Boston by storm, as a joint Gillette/Stark Industries sign now adorns the top of Gillette’s global headquarters. And Stark Industries is taking this mission very seriously. Its R&D team has spent the last week using its own famous technology to build four prototypes of razors that promise to set a new standard for all razors going forward.
The prototypes have been modeled after members of the Avengers: Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, and Thor.
The Repulsor1 with Exoblade has an Arc Reactor Technology that generates a perpetual energy supply to obliterate face hairs with Uni-beam pulse bolts. The Gillette XL Gamma with stress-triggered sensors and an unstable molecular structure can increase up to 700% in razor mass and brute shaving force. The Gillette Ultra Strike is rebuilt with Super Soldier Technology and has a rare Vibranium-coated Shield Cartridge that shoots out from the handle to cut targeted hairs. And finally, the Gillette Thunder scorches hairs to the follicle with micro-lightning and an honor based gyro-gravity field to make it borrow-proof.
“Certainly, Stark Industries has access to technology much different than Gillette has developed over our 110 years in the grooming business,” says Stew Taub, Director of Shave Care R&D at Gillette. “We are excited to see what happens in testing as the Avengers-inspired technology is incorporated into the razors.”
