Meet one of the new stock market X-Men: SkyTrader, Equity Angel.

(click ad for a closer look at the mutant)
"I have hundreds of deals in the air, simultaneously. If I want to know the word on the Street, whoosh—I'm out the window. Tokyo market in an uproar? Whoosh—I'm there in, uh, five days...too late. Still. I am SkyTrader, Equity Angel. Winged broker. Market magpie. And I am Supernatural™" (Good luck with that whole trademarking the word "Supernatural" Liquidnet. See two more X-Men/Women traders with their own unique mutant powers at the Liquidnet Website.). previously in stock broker ads: Gorilla Trades endorsed by a Monkee; Trade King's "WhiskeySweet40" and "SilverFox11"; and Scottraders use abacuses.

He reminds me of Lex Luthor from Smallville. . . Except with wings! Oh wait, is that a feminine hygenie product commercial??? I'm so confused.

I'm sure he thought at the time it was a great idea. Maybe if the implementation was a little better it would have worked. Right now, the ad looks cheesy and the website looks hokey.

"pol pot pie" was one of the names I used to use for trolling the old fuckedcompany.com message boards. "Uncle Fister" was my other favorite.

Good times, good times . . .

I thought the wings meant he was dead.

But, seriously, has Liquidnet not heard that businesses went global, oh, say, 50 years ago?

Traders are angels, right? Please, someone tell me I finally got one right?

@Make the logo bigger: only when they're also venture capitalists who want to taxis to actually leave skid marks when running them over.
