If there’s a collection of characters as rich in personality and backstory as the ones found in the comic book universe, it has to be the memorable creations from the Disney corporation, and artist James Silvani has collided those two worlds in his depictions of Disney favorites as superheroes and villains. Seeing Mickey Mouse as Captain America, Goofy as Thor and Donald Duck as Iron Man puts a childish grin on my face.

Each one of these spectacular and nostalgic James Silvani drawings is beautifully rendered in colored markers and revisits popular and obscure characters from Marvel Comics, DC Comics and Disney franchises. If you’re unfamiliar with Launchpad McQuack or Darkwing Duck, just be thankful that you have your youth while older readers reminisce about epic olden day Disney cartoons.
