Post-Punk Icons Reimagined As Marvel Heroes

Spandex outfits. Alter-egos. Life-changing performances of superhuman feats.

We'd hesitate to describe any musician as a "hero", but prompted by Butcher Billy's new art series, we're starting to notice the similarities.

Following on from his 2013 series of Post-Punk 'Super Friends', illustrator and New Wave obsessive Billy has returned to his favourite theme of dressing up the likes of The Smiths and Joy Division in super suits.

Rude, loud and painfully aware of their inner struggles, here's hoping Marvel brings in some New Wave characters to third phase films?
