Cubist superhero portraits

Ask most under-10s what they want to be when they grow up and chances are the answers will be mainly superhero-based.

While this might lead to literally millions of broken dreams, it does point to the enduring appeal of the good guy. So as we wait patiently for the lone hero to grow up, see their father die and proceed to save us all, we can continue to live in the pages of comics.

This quite brilliant collection of pictures takes a cubist look at some iconic heroes, all the way through from Superman to Raphael. James Reid's Polygon Heroes are thankfully for sale here so you can plaster them all over your nephew's room, hoping he might grow up with a healthy interest in justice-serving.
