Marvel and DC Superheroes Receive a Hello Kitty Makeover

Marvel and DC Superheroes Receive a Hello Kitty Makeover

Marvel and DC superheroes (and Gandalf too) have been treated to a Hello Kitty transformation of pink proportions.

If there's one thing you can't accuse the Marvel cinematic universe of, it's being a dark, bleak place void of color or cuteness. Heck, anyone who's seen Guardians of the Galaxy can attest to the fact that the studio is more than willing to couple its more awesome elements with varying shades of adorable. That being the case, there is one direction that the company has very much steered away from and that, my friends, is the realm of pink. Even in the multi-colored hero smorgasbord that was The Avengers, not a single hero deigned to adorn themselves in the color.

At this point, of course, you might be asking why they ever would. To that, I reply tactics. As anyone who's ever walked through the girl's section of any Toys R' Us can attest, concentrated pink is probably the most off-putting color in existence. And while seeing a group of united superfolk might be intimidating, think about how disconcerting it would be to look across the battlefield and see your opponents decked out in pink. I know I'd be taken aback.

Taking this one step further, several bloggers have recently released a batch of edited images reimagining several characters and their costumes as a team of Hello Kitty emblazoned superheroes. The pictures, of course, aren't meant to be taken seriously. Even so, it is arguably surprising how well the bright Kitty pink meshes with the various hero outfits (here's looking at you Hawkeye). The full gallery also extends beyond just Marvel characters, including the Ben Affleck Batman, Superman and even Gandalf the Pink. Because why the heck not? The best part, of course, is that this isn't even close to being the oddest re-imagining we've seen.

Meh. Photoshop's a thing, I guess.

My mind instantly gravitated to wiping all but the pink, throwing in some black, and relabeling them as Emperor's Children.

...When I saw the title, I instantly thought of Marvel heroes in a Hello Kitty style, not... this. Look, I like the color pink as the next chick, but this is too much, even for me!

Ha!SO IT'S TRUE! Real men DO wear pink!

Ok I admit to laughing at some of the images, they just look fabulous (they down they are all Hello Kitty fans)!!!

The Captain 'Murrka one is the most real looking transformation <_<"

The Internet: your source for random, talented people with wayyyyy too much time on their hands.

Nick Fury still looks badass and Black Widow is adorable.

Huh... So, I guess everyone's part of the Pink Initiative...
Does this mean the big crossover event would be directed by Joss "Kitty" Whedon or what?

Thor looks like a golden labrador that got accidently locked in a little girl's room during a sleepover

I just realized hawkeye has two zippers on his outfit with no way to unzip them. they are decorative zippers

I was actually expecting Hello Kitty, as in Hello Kitty dressed as all these heroes, not simply photoshopping the actual actors' outfits and turning them pink.

I'm with BlueRanger, my initial thought was that Hello Kitty was dressed up as these super-heroes...but these are mainly just the heroes with a pink makeover and Hello Kitty stamped somewhere on them. I have to admit though, Nick Fury sporting a fuschia coat and that eyepatch...I kinda like it. Ditto for Thor and a pink mjolnir....complete with sparkles!

I think S.H.I.E.L.D should change their uniforms to this since they pretty much all pull it off.

Slow news week or something?

Stew, there are much better topics and/or photoshops to post on the Escapist. I just googled "hello kitty iron man" and found better examples of Hello Kitty versions of the Avengers.

Only Sam L could wear a pink longcoat and pink bow eyepatch and still look badass.

It's depressing that The Escapist is reduced to reposting content from other blogs and Reddit to attract attention.

The Escapist Newsroom: Reposting things you've seen spammed on your Facebook feed since last week.

Err, I mean, great find guys!

Hail Slaanesh!

I didn't think Batfleck could look sillier in his sulky pose.

I was wrong.

Armor of the Fifth Age Thor?

I like pink. My tablet and cellphone cases are pink. I'm wearing a pink shirt right now. This is awesome.

FLAMBOYANCE. :O

Can someone please explain something to me.
Is Gendalf DC or Marvel superhero?
And since when?
