Superheroes and Villains CLIMB a Wall
February 27th, 2012
If there’s one thing that many superheroes and villains seem to have in common is that they inevitably find themselves
rappelling scaling up the side of a building for one reason or another. Artist Nicholas Hyde (aka “Harshness“) made note of this unusual behavioral pattern, and has documented it for us with this cool series of illustrations.
The CLIMB series of posters features silhouettes of Batman, Wolverine and Spider-Man making their way towards the top of a building, all the while their nemeses, Catwoman, Sabretooth and Doctor Octopus do the same. I’m assuming the bad guys are higher up on the building, and the superheroes are giving chase, but they could have just stopped by the same building at different times, I suppose. I love them all, but Doc Ock is my absolute favorite. I just love how he manages to float his body up the side of the building with those huge tentacles.
Each of these six 12″x 16″ prints would look great in any geeky pad, and sell for $19 (USD) each over at Harshness’ Etsy shop. Can you think of some other action characters who climb up the side of a building this way?
