Kryptonite has come to Brandon. So too have power rings and shapeshifters.

But you have to fly, or better yet teleport yourself, to Hollywood Comics & Collectibles if you want to dabble in the super power of your choice.

The store is one of a handful of new businesses that have recently opened in Westfield Brandon mall. William Insignares, who has owned and operated many comic book stores in the Tampa Bay area during the past 24 years, is catering his newest store to comic book movie and television fans.

"We see many Wonder Moms and Super Dads bringing their children to the store," he said. "The younger generation is excited about the upcoming movie or TV show, and the seasoned fans are introducing them to the original comic books. It's a way for all generations to connect with each other."

Hollywood Comics & Collectibles opened in March and carries vintage comic books, collectibles, toys, T-shirts and apparel with a focus on superheroes and villains featured on the big and small screens and throughout pop culture. It is designed with the comic book reader (and viewer) in mind.

Other recent new additions to Westfield include M.A.C. Cosmetics, BoxLunch, Cinnabon and Galibelle's.

M.A.C. Cosmetics is one of the world's leading professional makeup companies.

BoxLunch is a gift and novelty retailer with a cause, offering a curated collection of licensed and nonlicensed merchandise. For every $10 spent, a meal is donated to a person in need. Get Some. Give Back.

Galibelle's creative interchangeable system allows you to purchase one sandal sole and separate tops.

Earthbound Trading Co., an eclectic mix of products ranging from gifts and home décor to jewelry, apparel and personal accessories, is slated to open in May.
