Minimalist Superheroes are Reduced to Their Essence

Published by at 1:00 pm under Images,Movies

This rather cool art project is from illustrator Fabian Gonzalez who has a self proclaimed boyhood obssession with superheroes. This design was an entry in Threadless’s minimalist design competition, and if it didn’t win, it sure as hell should have.

Now, the first task is to see who among you can name them all without any help. I got through about 15 before I started giving up, but perhaps you can do better than I did.

But when you do throw in the towel (and you will), there’s an answer key I’ve posted after the jump.

Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Superman, Gambit, Barbarella
Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Cyclops, The Incredibles
Radioactive Man, Fallout Boy, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Captain Atom, Aeon Flux
Wolverine, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, Professor X, Chapulin Colorado, The Darkness
Ben (Fantastic Four), Hellboy, He-Man, Freakazoid, The Silver Surfer, Witchblade
Spider-Man, Mandrake, Mighty Man, Green Lantern, Falcon, Atom Ant
The Phantom, Storm (X-Men), Birdman, Aquaman, Iceman, Captain Marvel
Space Ghost, Blade, Blue Falcon, Dynomutt, Flash Gordon, Bartman
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo; Plastic Man, Duffman
The Punisher, Daredevil, Hawkman, Black Vulcan, Zorro, Hancock

Hancock, like he counts…

    I got 25. Some of them went by me like Prof. X. Would have never guessed that one.

    I got 33, but some of them were tough. Like the Hncock one – I guess Hunter S. Thompson. What? He’s a hero.
