The superhero craze has undeniably overtaken western civilization, but no incarnation of Marvel or DC Comics characters will be beloved by me as much as these Joel Micah Harris drawings. Rather than presenting the super-powered humans as statuesque Greek gods, Harris has instead re-imagined them as bloated sea manatees. The results, as you can imagine, are sweeter than your favorite cheesecake.
Included in the eclectic collection are Captain America, Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aqua Man and the Martian Manhunter. The ridiculousness of each superhero’s costume is only amplified when they're strapped onto bulbous manatees that look as though they can barely move.
For those curious about the man behind the manatees, Joel Micah Harris is a American comic book artist who clearly has a wicked sense of humor.
