The Superhero Alphabet

It's obviously been a fair amount of time since we had to learn the alphabet so our memories are understandably a bit vague. But when we try to trawl back into our childhood, the words 'fun' and 'alphabet' don't always go together very well.

When our kids come onto the scene (gulp), we are going to make damn sure we involve superheroes in their learning of the ABCs. Because what rite of passage isn't vastly improved by superheroes? We're choosing to exclude the loss of one's virginity...

Genius designer Fabian Gonzalez created this smart poster using a different superhero for each letter. For the most part, our knowledge matches up most of them but our recent attempt to live a life without comic books is clearly starting to have an effect.

Underneath, you can also see some more of his fantastic superhero, video game and robot work.
