Lonely Gods: The Solitude of Being a Superhero

By on May 30, 2013

Created by illustrator Belhoula Amir of France, this series of illustrations depicts the loneliness of being a superhero in the native environments of heroes within the Marvel and DC universes. For instance, Amir’s depiction of Superman has the Man of Steel hovering in space looking down on Earth, specifically North America. Other heroes depicted within the collection include Batman, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Wolverine.

Amir’s other work includes designing a collection of Harry Potter inspired bookmarks, a series of minimalist Star Wars posters, full profile illustrations of villains within the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, a group of drawings of the villains of Gotham City and other interesting illustrations related to pop culture figures. You can check out his full Behance profile here.
