Would You Make a Good Superhero? This Infographic Poster Will Tell You

would-you-make-a-good-superhero-this-infographic-poster-will-tell-you

“Would I Make A Good Superhero?” is a fun infographic poster from Charley Chartwell. It helps answer that question constantly brewing in the back of our minds of whether or not we would make a great superhero. At least, that’s what’s stirring in the back of my mind.

You’re considering a career as a superhero. You’re itching to know what you’ll wear, how you’ll schedule your day, the types of foes you’ll face. Display this poster in your home, office, or fortress to tackle these hard questions before you begin ridding the world of evil.

The poster is available for purchase in their online store for $20.

Drew Struzan Came Out of Retirement To Paint This BATKID BEGINS Poster

Remember Batkid? Miles Scott, a young boy with leukemia, took the internet by storm in 2013 when the Make-A-Wish Foundation allowed him to save San Francisco from the dastardly plans of The Riddler. It was a touching story and a nice example of a community coming together to support a great cause. Filmmaker Dana Nachman made a documentary about Batkid, and it’s premiering at the Slamdance Film Festival in Utah later this month. But even if the doc ends up being awful (which is highly unlikely), it’s already notable for doing something very cool for fans of awesome poster art.

Drew Struzan, arguably the most famous poster artist in the world, came out of retirement to paint the poster for Batkid Begins, and you can check it out in full below. Drew’s work — on everything from Back to the Future to Indiana Jones, Star Wars to Harry Potter, and dozens more — is chronicled in an excellent book called The Art of Drew Struzan, which I actually reviewed here on the site four years ago. Rumor has it that Struzan will also do the posters for J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so we should find out pretty soon if that’s the case or not. Let us know what you think of the Batkid Begins poster in the comments!

Best Art Ever (This Week): Batgirl, Seconds, Marvin the Martian, Squirrel Girl, Phonogram And More

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Marvel Hero Silhouette Art by Jason W. Stanley

marvel-hero-silhouette-art-by-jason-w-stanley

Artist Jason W. Stanley has created a cool series of silhouette superhero and villain art. It features Spider-Man, Hulk, Captain America, Punisher, Doctor Octopus, Thor, and Iron Man. This is fun stuff, but if you haven’t seen the hero art series, “When I Grow Up I Wanna Be…” yet, you should check it out here and here. It’s also silhouette art, but it focuses on kids wanting to be superheroes.

Vision and Ultron’s Origins Revealed in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Promo Art

The Disney marketing machine is ramping up the promotional material for Avengers: Age of Ultron and some of it has found its way onto Reddit. In one image we get a really sharp look at Vision (Paul Bettany) coming out of a wall and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) striking a pose. More interesting than the images is the text bios for Vision and Ultron, which reveal their origins.

Spoiler Alert — If you don’t want to know, don’t go any further.

Vision Biography:

“Programmed by the combined geniuses of Tony Stark & Bruce Banner, and imparted with the ability to fly, project intense energy beams and change the density of his form, the Vision has proved himself a worthy hero, aiding the Avengers in their struggle against the evil A.I. Ultron”

This info seems to contradict comic canon in which Ultron creates The Vision. If I’m not mistaken, I believe Joss Whedon also said the Vision origin sticks close to comic canon. Mark Ruffalo recently said Banner has been helping Stark with something. We all assumed it was Ultron when Rufallo added that the experiment went wrong. It would be interesting if what went wrong resulted in Vision.

Ultron Biography:

“First discovered as a simple computer program hidden among the ruins of the Chitauri invasion of New York, the being known as Ultron soon completed it’s development into a sophisticated artifical intelligence after some experimentation by Tony Stark. Ultron’s first shocking ultimatum upon gaining consciousness was to declare the human race its enemy. Setting out to exterminate all life on the planet, the unstable and emotional Ultron seeks to upgrade its mechanical body to an ultimate, unstoppable form. With an army of robotic drones and the ability to enter and corrupt any computer network, Ultron will stop at nothing to see humanity wiped out.”

Ultron starts out as a Chitauri program, interesting. In a LEGO set, Ultron drones are stealing Loki’s scepter, which makes me believe that the scepter initiates a hidden part of Ultron’s programing. Promo material often contains only shades of truth in order to protect the real plot, but supported by other bits that have leaked out, this does give us a somewhat clearer picture.

The Vision Featured In Promo Art for AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

A new piece of promo art for Avengers: Age of Ultron has surfaced, featuring Paul Bettany as the Vision. This is the best and most detailed look that we’ve had at the character so far, and he sure does look awesome! The synthetic humanoid is one of Ultron’s creations in the story, and he becomes part of the Avengers team in the image. As you can see in the image below, Vision is surrounded by the team. I can’t wait to see some actual footage of this character. I’m sure Marvel will eventually include him in a trailer.
