Darren Tibbles Illustrates The Avengers as Playground-Sized Toddlers

I’m sure many boys growing up have been guilty of dressing up in football equipment and pretending they’re superheroes, and Darren Tibbles takes that innocent role-playing activity and uses it as the concept of these rad illustrations. Seen here are his renditions of Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk and Thor as they would look if they were still the size of schoolyard toddlers. Despite their age, the kid avengers still look as though they’re capable of major butt-kicking.

Adding to the fun of these Darren Tibbles illustrations is the inventive ways he’s incorporated each superhero’s equipment into each image. The boy dressed as Iron Man is wearing sports padding as his armor, the child Captain America defends himself with a patriotically painted trash can lid and kid Thor has a wooden mallet and a dirty red blanket as a cape.
