Check These Out: Some Cool Minimalist Superhero Character Posters
After The Avengers stormed the box office last weekend, it's pretty clear that superheroes still rule the box office, at least when they're done right (thank you, Joss Whedon). Outside of the theater, the same can be said with all the merchandising of toys, shoes, food tie-ins, and various other projects that feature the faces of the wide variety of heroes hitting the big screen nowadays. And while some of that stuff is pretty cool, I like seeing the kind of artwork that fans come up with to commemorate their favorite heroes. At Society6, artist theLinC has a batch of sixteen minimalist superhero prints that would look good on any wall.
Honestly, these would be the perfect way to decorate the wall of a growing young boy or girl who loves superheroes. They're simple, kid-friendly and cover a variety of heroes from Marvel and DC Comics including The Avengers and almost all the main members of Justice League (sorry Aquaman). I've chosen about half of the posters, but you can see all of them right here, including some variants on Captain America (with or without wings), Thor (with or without a beard) and Iron Man (with or without the triangle chest piece). And the good news is that they are all available for purchase at Society6 for $18 each. Pretty cool?
The Hulk one was kinda weird.

Triangle is ass.

Right?? Youd think the guy who made that pic would know. -_-

Whedon said that there was an explanation about the change to the triangle back to the circle. Also, that there were "several" Iron Man's costume on the Avengers movie. Please note that "several" now means actually "two", and I'm still waiting for the explanation...

Actually, Whedon said there was "more than one" and didn't promise an explanation, but said that the circle has meaning. I don't think it's a big enough issue that it needs to be explained, it feels right. If you want an explanation: the circle is a symbol of infinity/cycles. It fits better with the idea of the longevity of the energy and the power that also needs to continue so that Stark won't die. This is just my assumption.

Fair enough. I thought the same about the circle. Two it's actually "more than one", though.
Manuel on May 9, 2012
the circle shows Whedon has too much nostalgia to let new things show off on characters he reads about as a kid...

These are alright, though I like the other ones better.

This trend needs to die already. I love minimalist work but this exact idea has been rehashed about a dozen times now. Grunge paper background, simplistic icons of superheros, rinse, repeat, sell for $18 a pop, yawn.... Stop encouraging this crud. The Avengers artwork from last week was amazing, this is nothing.
