    7 Post-Punk And New Wave Rock Stars Reimagined As Superheroes

    Go home everyone, we have today's winner. Illustrated with aplomb by Butcher Billy. (via Geek O System)

    1. Morrissey as Superman

    Notes the designer:

    As a child of the 80's I was heavily influenced by everything from Saturday morning cartoons on TV to the music coming from the radio. Ian Curtis or Johnny Rotten are as iconic to me as Superman or Batman. Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics - all of those influences affect us to the point of defining our character and personality, career paths and life choices.

    The references we are exposed and specifically the ones we choose to absorb make us who we are.

    2. Ian Curtis (Joy Divison) as Batman

    3. Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo) as The Flash

    4. Billy Idol as Aquaman

    5. Siouxsie Sioux as Wonder Woman

    6. Robert Smith (The Cure) as Plastic Man

    7. John Lydon (The Sex Pistols, P.I.L.) as Firestorm
