“chameleon29” has some awesome artwork on deviantArt of favorite heroes and villains from both DC and Marvel comics. Some are even available as prints (and/or magnets and mugs)!
Too bad I have no money…. Damn you, comic addiction!
My personal favorite it Batman, not to say the rest aren’t great. I simply love the interpretation with the extra sharp ridges and lines of the mask, especially around Batman’s eyes.
I do apologize for the deviantArt watermark, but I thought these pieces were so damn cool I’d share them with my fellow geeks anyway. The art may be fairly familiar in pose (especially Iron Man), but the style really grabs me, you know?
(Gross, not in that way! Get your mind out of the gutter, buddy!)
All appear to be the “movie versions” of their character. Bane is obvious, though Spider-Man and Iron Man also sport masks closer to their big-screen design. In Spidey’s case, I think we’re looking at the original Sam Raimi version played by Tobey Maguire.

You just don’t see Deadpool and Agent Venom enough these days because they don’t yet have their own movies. BOTH were horribly mishandled in their silver screen appearances, where they played watered-down villains versus the same ole’ Marvel heroes we see again and again (Spider-Man and Wolverine, are there two more overexposed Marvel characters?).
Not to say I don’t want to see them as villains, but casting Topher Grace as Eddie Brock and throwing Venom into the 3rd act of SPIDER-MAN 3 haphazardly was a huge mistake. Way to waste the Web-Head’s greatest foe, Sony.
Of course, Venom classic, as seen in the film (sort of…) is technically different than Agent Venom, but let’s not get bogged down in such details. That’s Media Monster’s area of expertise. He’s always caught up in both the DC and the Marvel universe (with a pinch of IDW and Image), while I lag behind in my reading.
Like Sony’s treatment of Venom, 20th Century Fox ruined Deadpool, creating a version completely unrecognizable when compared to the comic (one of Media Monster’s picks of the week of Dec. 5th).
But I digress, as these two feature film interpretations of Marvel’s favorite anti-heroes have already been ragged on to death by geek and geekess alike.
I like your style, chameleon29. Now gimme some free prints, buddy!
