Additional Information: 

This button was created as part of the Busy Beaver Button Co.'s Button-O-Matic 2011 series "Superhero!" by Abbey Hambright. In an interview on the Busy Beaver blog she describes the inspiration for the button, "We were brainstorming different things that superheroes do— they scale tall buildings, rescue babies and old people, they defeat evil villains, when it hit me: they tear off their shirts! Thus the first ever tear-off button was born." The full interview and an animation of the button's shirt being torn off can be found here: The animated gif is also viewable above.
