Marvel’s twelfth film in its Cinematic Universe is Ant-Man, and it follows on from The Avengers: Age of Ultron in a sort of tangential manner. Ant-Man himself is far less well-known to non-comic buffs than other Avengers, or even the Fantastic Four. Let’s see how well the miniature hero stacks up against the bigger names.
Superman saves the day again, and this time we’re along for the ride. The man of steel finds a lost GoPro camera, decides to strap it on and fight crime in Metropolis before returning the kit to its rightful owner. Check out the wild ride from Superman’s point of view.
The video was made by the super-awesome Internet-video creators at Corridor Digital.

Back in April, the design collective at The Ninjabot set about creating a collection of minimalist art prints, each one telling the story of how a superhero came to be the way that they are. They called it the Origin series on Kickstarter.
The project started out with six prints, but exploded to 13 different designs, and now with Origin Series Part II, The Ninjabot wants to fund the print run of the “Origin Series” as art book with the inclusion of new character designs.

Brands are forever trying to insinuate themselves into our lives. GoPro cameras are attached to practically every limb of extreme sportspeople these days. Felix Baumgartner would not have reached the stratospheric heights that he did in Redbull Stratos without the financial backing of the Austrian energy drinks company. Internet search giant Google want you to wear their geeky glasses.
Italian graphic designer Roberto Vergati Santos wondered what it’d be like if our favourite superheroes were sponsored by popular brands. Some of his associations are skin-deep: Hulk’s green complexion is a good fit for Monster Energy drink and Wolverine’s Adamantium claws matches the brand with the three stripes. Iron Man is seen with the golden arches emblazoned on his chest, but with his problems with alcohol addiction, perhaps sponsorship from a single malt whisky brand might be a tad more appropriate.

Given that saving the world is pretty high up on their agenda, it’s no surprise that superheroes don’t sweat the small stuff. However, in his latest series of pop art style illustrations, French graphic designer Grégoire Guillemin takes a look at some of the mundane things that superheroes aren’t likely to be shown doing: scratching their bums, taking a dump, stuffing their Wonderbras, that kind of thing.
Have a look at Guillemin’ Secret Hero Life after the jump. Beware though, some secrets may be a tad scandalous.
The illustrator and cartoonist re-imagines Marvel super heroes as boisterous babies, from baby Hulk smashing his toys to the potty-mouthed Deadpool, to an epic confrontation between the A-Babies and the X-Babies. Have a look at Young’s baby variant comic book covers after the jump.
Graphic designer Roberto Salvador draws superheroes at their peak of frustration, where they’re so mad they could…shout. Have a look at some of this incredibly angry and adorable Screaming Heroes after the jump.
Nothing says “Like a sir” more than a monocle and a top hat. Artist Lora Zombie shows this in her “Mr.” set of watercolour prints where a number of superheroes exude wealth and class by donning the corrective lens and formal headgear.

Game of Thrones has been showered with much praise and attention. Fans have remixed the opening theme tune, re-created the characters out of LEGO, and even compiled a video of only just the naughty bits.
The house sigils have been of particular interest as well, from the minimalist to the seriously cute. They are the inspiration for a new set of posters, this time if popular characters from comics books, TV, and film were part of the noble houses of Westeros.
Have a look at the sigils of House Wayne, House Skywalker, and House House after the jump.
If you’ve recently visited Wallbase, you would have noticed the works of 21-year-old illustrator Andres Romero, or Blo0p as he is known on deviantART. What started out as a simple request from a friend has snowballed into a an extremely large body of work, and Romero’s set of minimalist superhero posters sits at a whopping 129 characters! See a few of those posters after the jump.
