If all the superheroes in the world were hipsters, it would be a terrible, horrible, not good, very bad day… every day. Battles would almost certainly be lost. Villains would rise to the top, with dire consequences for humanity. But just for fun, it’d be interesting to witness what big-wigs like Batman, Spiderman, or the X-Men crew would look like as total hipsters, wouldn’t it? What about some female badasses too, like Catwoman and Power Girl?
It turns out that artist Phillip Sevy has made some seriously rad hipster superhero art like the one you see above. Batman’s slouching in a hoodie and boots, relaxing on a bar stool. I didn’t notice at first, but pay attention to the scheming jokester behind the bar! Commissioner Gordon, Mr. Freeze, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Nightwing, Two-Face, Kate Kane, the Riddler, Barbara Gordon, and even Damien Wayne are thrown in there too, so it’s quite the party. In addition to Sevy’s collection, we’re highlighting Elizabeth Beals, who’s outfitted some DC comic heroines to resemble the hippest hipsters around town. Her costumes are really neat. With both artists though, the devil’s in the details.
Check out all this hip artwork in the Gallery below, and try to imagine a world where everything is turned upside-down, and the day isn’t saved by a strapping, power-wielding hero or heroine. It’s a scary thought, so at least this is all make believe.
