Mash the world of Nintendo and Marvel Comics together and Soulrailer's illustrative series is what you get.

Artist Soulrailer has taken one of Nintendo's most beloved characters and transformed him into some of Marvel Comics' most iconic superheros. The character is known for inhaling its enemies to take their powers and on occasion, a slight change to his appearance occurs. However, Soulrailer has given Kirby a full transformation. The chubby creature now dons the costume of heroes such as Captain America, Iron Man and Spiderman while of course, maintaining all their super powers.

The Kirby superhero project is an ongoing series and with plans to add more characters to the collection. Perhaps a Batman depiction could be in the works? Stats for Cuddly Superhero Depictions Trending: Older & Chilly
