As people get geared up for the upcoming San Diego Comic Con set for July 24 until July 27, a few artists have decided to treat them with some superhero medication. Although completely conceptual, the 'comical cures for super-symptoms,' as the creators put it, show that at the end of the day these comic book characters are more similar to average humans than they like to let on.
Titled RxMen, the superhero medication includes a chest pain reliever for Tony Stark, mood swing stabilizer for Bruce Banner a.k.a. The Hulk and intense migraine pills for Professor Charles Xavier. Created by illustrator Ryan Quickfall with the help of Dan Reiss, Doug Levy, Jordan Roland, Eric Sams, and Sarah Maloy, the superhero medication is cleverly illustrated in the classic style of comic books.
