Heres What Would Happen If Superheroes Had Babies (14 Illustrations)

People say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and we have to agree. But could it possibly fall any closer than this? The father’s genes most definitely won the womb wars in this artist’s imagination when he decided to illustrate the world’s most beloved comic book characters becoming dads.

Brazil-based artist Lucas Eduardo Nascimento, also known as Dragonarte to his 110k fans on Facebook and over 80k Instagram followers, drew a series of badass, yet adorable babies of superheroes and their first meetings with their fathers in the maternity ward. With the uncanny resemblance for all to see, these superbabies are already making their dads proud and our hearts melt.

We wish these mini versions of superheroes had their own sequel to the famous comics but it seems that Marvel and DC have yet to appreciate the creative potential of this illustrator.

Whether you are a fan of cute newborns or menacing superheroes, you will definitely enjoy these ‘father and son’ moments this artist has prepared for you.

The 10 Best Starry Night Mashups on the Web

Vincent van Gogh, 1889

The Starry Night is an oil on canvas by Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Painted in June 1889, it depicts the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

It has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1941, and is widely regarded as among Van Gogh’s finest works. The Starry Night is one of the most recognized paintings in the history of Western culture and as such, has been the source for mashups, remixes, and reinterpretations in a wide range of mediums and formats.

Below you will find what we believe to be the 10 best Starry Night mashups on the Web.

‘Justice League’ fizzling is the DCEU’s worst nightmare come true

The DCEU needs a hero.

The DC Extended Universe is in deep crisis.

With $96 million on opening weekend, Justice League is by far the weakest box office performer of all the DCEU films. This was supposed to be their Avengers. Instead, it was their Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem.

Five movies deep, with all your key heroes activated and united, is this where you want to land on the DCEU opening weekend rankings? 

  1. Batman v Superman: $166 million

  2. Suicide Squad: $133.6

  3. Man of Steel: $116.6 million

  4. Wonder Woman: $103.25 million

  5. Justice League: $96 million

What does Warner Bros. do now?

Now the studio finds itself in a real pickle

This is precisely what the studio was trying to avoid when it pointed Zack Snyder to the exits a year ago, plugging in Joss Whedon to rip out the critical movie’s guts and reshoot them with an all-new, lighter, jokier, ensembley-er tone.

The coming weeks will be worse for Justice League, as its box office returns drop like a stone. Wonder Woman may have the next-lowest domestic opening weekend, but that film had unbelievably powerful legs, holding strong for a stunning 21 weeks on its way to passing all the other DC films and landing in the Top 5 superhero movies of all time.

Justice League will be lucky to crack the Top 25.

And now the studio finds itself in a real pickle. It spent mountains of cash and political capital to pivot away from Snyder’s doleful vision that critics hated but at least was working with a loyal (and, ahem, vocal) swath of DC fans. There’s no going back to that look – that ship has sailed – but the way forward is not exactly clear, either.

Wonder Woman may be one of the most beloved superhero movies of all time; it will be shared and re-watched and talked about for generations. But melding casting, character, and director is a fussy magic, more a result of serendipity than planning or foresight. It’s safe to say that Wonder Woman succeeded in spite of its place in the DCEU, and certainly not because of it.

Aquaman was hardly the breakout character of Justice League, and yet he’s up next December. Neither Batman nor Superman has a date on the calendar, and Wonder Woman 2 is a full two years away. Shazam, Cyborg, and Green Lantern Corps are the only projects with spots on a calendar.

Shazam, Cyborg, and Green Lantern Corps? Are they serious with that game plan?

Shazam, Cyborg and Green Lantern Corps? Are they serious with that game plan?

It’s a mess, compounded by Warner Bros. desire to eject Affleck’s foibles from the Batmobile – how do you do that gracefully, keeping continuity and a straight face? – and the fact that the studio is in the midst of an ownership change. Anyone staring down the barrel of new bosses about to take over knows how paralyzing that can be.

With Suicide Squad director David Ayers out of the picture, not even it has a way forward. That movie was hot vomit but at least it made money; a sequel should’ve been a foregone conclusion the minute tracking came online.

Ahh, there’s that phrase: At least it made money. Something all the other DC films, love ’em or hate ’em, could boast. “We made it for the fans!” the studio crowed, and the fans, at least, turned out.

But for Justice League to fall below that important cosmetic nine-figures domestic opener is a big, blazing distress signal in the clouds that those fans are becoming impatient.

And you better believe someone is muttering that they should’ve just let Snyder finish this DCEU thing. At least that would’ve been a way forward.

Not so sure they have that now.

Trump is the biggest villain of all at the NYCC ‘Gotham’ panel

 

“Make Gotham great again.”

An approving crowd cheered for Gotham star Robin Lord Taylor as he remixed The Donald’s campaign slogan at the show’s New York Comic Con panel. Taylor’s Penguin is running for mayor, and his candidacy, entailing a villain running for office, feels like a reflection of the real world.

“At this rate, Penguin looks pretty freaking good,” Taylor joked. “Wouldn’t you say?

“I think the Gotham writers are writing our actual reality right now, and that’s probably the scariest thing you could possibly imagine.”

Penguin’s mayoral run is shaping up to be a major plotline in the show’s third season. From the little we’ve seen so far, Penguin is capitalizing on the public’s emotional distress to turn it against his more experienced opponent.

Sound familiar?

“He tries to present himself as he thinks a candidate should look,” Taylor said. “There is a certain homage to a certain candidate who is out there which is entirely intentional.”

Taylor then pointed out that the show’s flirtation with commentary is nothing new for comics. From the early days of Batman and Superman pushing back against fears over the rise of organized crime to Marvel’s more recent metaphoric forays into intolerance and social justice, Gotham is just a new voice in the mix.

“Our show is like any comic book in that the stories are written to reflect the times in which we live,” Taylor said. “Comic books are written with that idea in mind, the social climate. So our show is reflecting that.”

The panel moved on to other topics at that point, but Trump came up again after actress Erin Richards, who arrived late and missed Taylor’s earlier Trump talk, laid into the GOP candidate on her own.

“Did everybody hear what he said on Friday about women?” she asked. “It’s embarrassing.”

Taylor then mulled over what would happen if Penguin found himself speaking privately while a hot mic a la Trump.

Taylor laughed. “If Penguin was caught on a hot mic, he wouldn’t say anything nearly as vulgar or disgusting.”

Richards nodded her head in agreement, adding, “Nothing could be as bad as what that man has said.”

She then launched into a full-on anti-Trump stump speech for Hillary.

“Please, please, please vote Hillary. Please. Please vote Hillary. For the world. Please. For me. I can’t vote. I wish I could vote. I can’t vote. Britain is behind you if you vote Hillary. Though I don’t know what we’re doing at the moment, I apologize for Brexit.”

Trump came up one final time, late in the panel, when a fan asked the Gotham stars what they would write if they had control of the GOP candidate’s Twitter feed.

For Taylor, it was: “I’m sorry for making a mockery of the United States. I’m sorry for being embarrassing. I’m sorry. I’m ashamed. That’s what I would say.”

And for Richards: “I am removing myself from the presidential race. And from all races. I’m removing myself from the Earth.”
