Artist Maris Wicks Makes Athletes Out of Cartoon Heroes

Massachusetts-based artist Maris Wicks has discovered an intriguing and comedic way to humanize some of your favorite superheroes -- by drawing them in the act of playing sports.

Maris Wicks' illustrations depict a wide array of superheroes, including Wonder Woman, Spiderman, Batman and the Incredible Hulk as they participate in a variety of traditional athletic activities. The illustrations do a great job of capturing the inherent comedy in seeing someone one views as a spectacular superhero doing something a little more normal.

So far, Maris Wicks has drawn 9 athletes in the superhero sports series and she plans on selling the official prints on her website soon.
