These funny illustrations were made by Canadian artist Darren Rawlings, I hope you like them as much as I did.

Here's a link to the artist's page, where you can find more: http://darrenrawlings.deviantart.com

Sorry if this is a repost, I've never seen it on here before.. I thought some fellow comic book fans would enjoy these.

UPDATE: Guys, I didn't draw these.. Sorry some of you feel like the character comparisons should be different, I feel that way about some of them too.. But some people addressed me directly, and I just want to say that these are not my illustrations. Also, I labeled them to match which character is shown first in the pictures.

UPDATE 2: I now put the date of their first appearances next to the names so you know who came first!
