Who hasn't dreamt of possessing supernatural powers? From soaring through the skies with an extended arm and fist to break through the clouds to harnessing the power of the elements, superheroes use their extraordinary skills to save the world. So whether it’s the heroes of the Iliad and the Odyssey, the comic heroes of our childhood or the protagonists of Marvel and DC universes, proudly honour them with superhero art prints.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
What makes a superhero a superhero? There are several schools of thought on this matter—opinions differ. But whether they have supernatural powers or not, are masked or unmasked, caped or uncaped, they all have one thing in common: they save us from evil.
Whether it’s Spider-Man battling the Green Goblin or Superman taking on Lex Luthor, superheroes never shy away from adversity to keep us safe. They look danger in the face and grab villains by the proverbial horns. Superhero posters remind us of something very important: that good always triumphs over evil.
Sometimes it’s the clothes that make a man—especially in the case of Batman and Iron Man. Imagine, then, that two powerful and wealthy men who could simply retire to their life of luxury, instead choose to squeeze saving humanity into their already chock-a-block schedules. Masked and kitted out with gadgets and gizmos from utility belts to iron armour: what will you wear come next fancy dress party? Find inspiration in our collection of superhero posters.
But not all heroes are clad in capes. Sometimes, they walk among us, changing the world in the process. From Frida Kahlo to David Bowie, Beyoncé to Leonardo DiCaprio, find your own personal superhero among mere, but exceptional, mortals and honour them with a print.
That said, you don’t need to be famous to be a superhero. We encounter amazing and inspiring people each and every day, who do their best to save (wo)mankind: some have stethoscopes, others have fire hoses—and all of them have a commendable amount of courage. For that, we thank them.
