Little Superheroes Are Mighty Adorable

We all know the familiar superheroes like Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Wolverine and more. They’re tough and fierce comic heroes. Typically they look something like this:

These characters are usually in a dramatic pose with rippling muscles and some villain to attack. Artist Alberto Varanda takes these well-known superheroes and makes them adorable little kid versions of themselves. Not the normal comic version we see, right? I can’t decide which one is my favorite. They’re all perfect!

You can find even more of his little heroes here and here. He does such a great job keeping the signature pieces of the characters with their costumes and powers, but he turns them into little kids. It’s such a great idea!
