Artist Reimagines Comic Book Supervillains as Real Life Bad Guys

The Legion of Real Life Supervillains by Butcher Billy

Some might say all art is a reflection of the times we live in.

The Legion of Real Life Supervillains is an illustrated project by Brazilian designer Butcher Billy that reimagines a series of comic book villains as similar real life bad guys. Prints, apparel, iPhone cases, tote bags and more are available to purchase online at Society6.

This series is an experiment where a dictator, a psycho, a murderer (sometimes they are the whole package) or even a suspicious figure from real life is mashed with a comics bad guy – strangely related some way or the other with his counterpart.

The depressing thing? Realizing that if the comic book supervillains were actually the ones threatening real life, the world wouldn’t be such a bad place.
