Fact: wearing a helmet covered in Thor graphics while you weld makes you invincible.
Actually, that’s not a fact. I made it up. It seems like it should be true though. And it seems like an awesome welding helmet like this would be a custom creation, but no. You can buy a Thor themed welding helmet of your very own right off the rack!
It’s a Viking brand solar powered helmet loaded with tons of features that probably make welders happy. I’m guessing it’s officially licensed, and if so, I’d love to see the letter that explains why superheroes are a natural fit for welding helmets. I thought it was just the Viking tie-in with Thor, but they also have a Captain America version.
Check out a few more views of both helmets after the break.
