With Man of Steel leaping over box office records (I kinda liked it), I was delighted to stumble upon this bit of superhero fanboy art. Someone has taken it upon himself to take post-punk/New Wave icons — including queer icon Morrissey, pictured — and re-imagine them as classic comic book heroes. Sure, Morrissey doesn’t have Henry Cavill’s pecs, but can Cavill burrow under your skin with plaintive lyrics of doomed romantic pointlessness? … I didn’t think so.
You can see all the pieces of cover art here.
