Jeremy Brunet's 'The Flat Heroes' Takes Minimalism to Comic Extremes

Part of the fun in this 'The Flat Heroes' poster collection is in guessing the superhero each poster is suppose to represent. Don't worry though, if you're stumped, text identifying each comic character is faintly printed onto each poster. But aside from that, the only clues you're given are the eclectic color schemes that make up each of The Flat Heroes' costumes.

Jeremy Brunet -- a graphic designer hailing from Paris, France -- made these minimalist representations of iconic comic book heroes and all elements of detail are so dialed down that it borderlines on ridiculous. Seriously, how am I suppose to know those six colored bars are suppose to represent Cyclops of the X-Men? At least with Superman you get a hint of a cowlick and that memorable blue, red, and yellow costume.
