Two superhero-themed vehicles at a car show in the US are there for more than just their flashy looks.

The Batman-decorated Kia Optima and the Green Lantern-wrapped Kia Soul are at the South Korean car manufacturer's stand in Detroit to promote an effort to fight hunger in Africa.

Features include Batman symbols inside and outside on the Optima, and the Green Lantern's symbol on the Soul's wheels.

The vehicles were created as part of a partnership with DC Entertainment using its Justice League characters, with the slogan "We Can Be Heroes".

The North American International Auto Show opens to the public on Saturday and runs until January 27.
