Amazing! But no love for Hal, or John? (Or even Jonn?)
Ok, let’s see who we’ve got here:
Clearly none of the Lanterns could be represented in the design because the shirt is printed in yellow.
Thank you for the quick reference. Saved me a lot of time.
Are you sure that Batman isn’t Ares?
Yeah, that’s entirely likely, the shield is quite war-like isn’t it? I guess the helmet seemed skullish enough to me to suggest Hades rather than Ares.
I’m totally digging the amalgamation.
I feel that Captain Marvel would be a better Zeus. I mean the guy has Zeus’ bolts after all.
It helps that wikipedia urls are so predictable.
I had the same thought. When I first saw it I assumed it was Ares. Hades never gets any love.
Comic book geek goes Greek. I like.
I’m guessing these are all characters from one “universe” since no one is getting horrified over DC/Marvel crossovers. Hmm, yeah, I think these are all DC.
ETA: found MMI, also by Steven Lefcourt. http://shirt.woot.com/offers/modern-myths hint, it was more video gamey. Got a theme going here, eh Steve.
Now we need a greek association with marvel…
Josh Whedon is complaining.
This is pretty sweet. I love the classical look and will likely pick on up tomorrow after I get paid.
Originally, Batman was going to be a straight up Hades amalgamation. There was some fun iconographic interplay with Hades bi-dent being the source of Batman’s cowl “horns” because when Hades sat at his throne he kept the bi-dent behind him and that created the image of 2 horns on his head.
I couldn’t make the idea work on its own, so he’s an amalgam of both Hades and Ares, using some vague references to imagery of sculptures of both.
Perhaps a Modern Myths III will happen some day, assuming I have a good idea for it. I don’t want to let Joss down…although, it would be kinda weird to make Thor a Greek god, haha.
Sitting here wearing the original Modern Myths trying not to buy another t-shirt… must… not … break … closet…
Ah, what the hell. ::bought::
Great design work, but you lost me when you went DC over Marvel…
Holding out for Modern Myths III…
I was really trying not to buy shirts right now but I need this for my Justice League shirt collection.
