When you combine the badassery of superheroes with the adorableness of felines, you get these cute and nerdy Alana McCarthy illustrations. Found on her Etsy store named Geeky Pet, these renderings feature cats that dress up in various Marvel and DC Comics guises. Favorites like Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and Wonder Woman make an appearance, only now they’re furrier and infinitely more huggable. There are even appearances by Captain Picard of Star Trek fame and Luke Skywalker from Star Wars for non-comic book fans.

Admirers of Alana McCarthy’s work may purchase prints via Geeky Pet. Though she’s selling digital prints of her work, her paintings are originally rendered with acrylics on printmaker paper. Fans can only hope she continues to churn out more furry and lovable crime fighter illustrations.
