When it comes to photo-realistic painting, life-like works of art, or pieces that suspend disbelief, Andreas Englund’s “The Life Of A Superhero” collection stands in a class of its own.  It’s almost needless to say that his talent with a paintbrush is incredible given his style of art, but his ability to tell the story of an entire life with his works is even better.  Check the method below.

It would be nearly impossible for comic book inspired artwork to become more popular than it currently is. Over the years we’ve seen superhero inspired everything, and it looks like the trend continues with these Comic Book Portraits by Sandra Chevrier. As an illustrator, Chevrier is constantly creating works of art, and this offering is certainly no exception.  She has used collages of superheroes like  Superman, Green Lantern and Batman to cover the faces of female portraits, leaving only the eyes or mouths exposed.

Batkid, The City Of San Francisco Is Safe Again

The streets of San Francisco are safe once again thanks to a duo of masked heroes. When legendary superhero Batman couldn’t save the day all on his own today, he enlisted the help of Batkid, a miniature version of the Dark Knight, himself. What he lacked in stature, he made up for in heart, as the young hero brought peace back to the city after the villainous Riddler took the city, and one woman, hostage. Batman and Batkid swooped in to untie the damsel in distress, disarming the bomb she was attached to. The real question remains, who is Batkid? Rumors have it, Batkid’s true identity is 5-year-old Miles Scott, whose real life is even more inspiring than that of Batkid. Miles has been battling leukemia since he was 18 months old, and is finally in remission. City of San Francisco and Make-A-Wish did an amazing thing for making this incredible day possible.

James Spader Cast as Lead Villain Ultron in ‘Avengers’ Sequel

Good news for James Spader – the quirky character actor is coming back in a big way as one of Marvel’s ultimate villains. Spader has just landed the title role in “The Avengers 2: The Age of Ultron,” the upcoming sequel to 2012’s record-setting superhero jamboree. Ultron is an evil robot that can travel through time and uses his talents to change the present so he can have the upper hand in the future. But, departing from the comic, writer-director Joss Whedon plans to strip some of Ultron’s powers for the upcoming film. “I knew right away what I wanted to do with him,” Whedon recently told Entertainment Weekly. “He’s always trying to destroy the Avengers, godd— it, he’s got a bee in his bonnet. He’s not a happy guy, which means he’s an interesting guy. He’s got pain. And the way that manifests is not going to be standard robot stuff. So we’ll take away some of those powers because at some point everybody becomes magic.” Spader’s Ultron will be making trouble for Marvel’s costumed heroes in the movie, including Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, and Thor. However, since Ultron is entirely mechanical, it remains to be seen if Spader will be on set in a suit, interacting with his fellow cast members, or if he’ll be providing the voice for a CGI creation. So far, Marvel and Disney haven’t weighed in on the matter. Whedon first revealed that Ultron would be the main villain in the “Avengers” sequel during his appearance at San Diego Comic-Con in July. And that Spader will be playing a less powerful Ultron, this should give fans plenty of room to speculate on how the writer-director will approach the character, given Spader’s ability to play bad guys who are at once charming and a little creepy.

Ben Affleck to Star as Batman in ‘Man of Steel’ Sequel

Superhero movie fans, we have our next Dark Knight. Oscar-winner Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in the sequel to “Man of Steel,” Warner Brothers has confirmed. Affleck, who recently won a Best Picture Oscar for producing “Argo,” which he directed and starred in, will join Henry Cavill as Superman in the next installment of the Superman franchise. The yet-to-be titled film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who lensed “Man of Steel,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch.” “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” Snyder said in a statement. “He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne.  I can’t wait to work with him.” The film will bring Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen, and will also bring back “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The announcement of Affleck in one of the lead roles followed weeks of speculation about who would play Batman in the hotly anticipated film. After Christian Bale, who starred in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, nixed the idea of returning to the role, a number of actors were rumored to be on board the project, including Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender.

The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. Pictures  representatives Greg Silverman and Sue Kroll:

We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular super heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some,” Greg Silverman, president of creative development at Warner Bros., said in a statement. “His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.

Super Heroes and Their Secret Identities


To be a superhero, you must usually have a secret identity, a “normal” personality with which you can blend in with the masses. The consequences of an enemy finding out their real-life identity could be most dire, oftentimes leading to the destruction of the hero’s alter-ego and/or the villain using a hero’s loved one(s) as bait. In some cases a Super-Hero chooses to keep their identity secret to avoid any legal ramifications (ex. Lawsuits) or public scrutiny that would ruin their life. Check out some of these illustrations.
