The Top 10 New Era Superhero Caps

New Era, the official hatter of Major League Baseball, produces a line of superhero-themed baseball caps. You can find hats featuring heroes like Batman, but wouldn't you rather have an awesomely ridiculous chapeau like "The Batzarro" or "The Rastafarian Darkseid?"

Any comic book fan can sport the logo of the Man of Steel (indeed, this is a look Shaq has perfected), but it takes a true superfan to rock a baseball cap emblazoned with the face of Superman's insane cybernetic doppelganger. And thanks to the downright wacky millinery of New Era, you too can let your geek flag fly (even if you were the laughingstock of your Little League squad). Here are io9's 10 favorite hats:
