Comic books introduced the world to an iconic pantheon of characters with god-like powers who star in timeless tales of good vs. evil, but well before comics the Old Masters were telling similar stories with their artwork.
And now the subjects of those old works of art have been replaced with the heroes of the Marvel Universe in these fun fine art updates by VFX artist David Cubero, who uses Marvel toys as the subjects.
Here's what David has to say about this heroic project:
I love toys and photography and I have been shooting pics of my toys collection since 2009. Recently I started this series about the history of art using Marvel Toys, mostly Iron Man. Why? Because I use references to create new pictures and I thought it would be fun to recreate this well-known images with modern iconic heroes.
