Post-Punk & New Wave Rock Stars Reimagined as Superheroes.

Post-Punk & New Wave Rock Stars Reimagined as Superheroes.

This is a little old, but see some of your favorite DC Superheroes reimagined or portrayed by some the most famous post-punk and new rock stars. Also this is in memory of a fallen star who died today from the new wave group DEVO's Bob Casale who died of heart failure.

Brazilian designer Butcher Billy created a fantastic project called The Post-Punk/ New Wave Super Friends. The project consists of several famous post punk and new wave rock stars as some of DC most famous superheroes straight out of the comics. Some of these are just great to say the least.

Mark Mothersbaugh (DEVO) as The Flash

Robert Smith (The Cure) as Plastic Man

John Lydon (Sex Pistols, PiL) as Firestorm

Siouxsie Sioux (Siouxsie and the Banshees) as Wonder Woman

Morrissey (The Smiths) as Superman

Billy Idol as Aquaman

Ian Curtis (Joy Divison) as Batman

I know this is going to get moved to the features area but one of my favorite new wave band DEVO lost a member today. Actually DEVO's music was used in the Heavy Metal comics so maybe this can stay on the news section.

Haha, this is brilliant.

@ Joe -
Yeah I read about that today. This is a nice tribute in a way, though it's a different guy.

Nah. Bob Smith is Sandman, not Plastic Man:(

Idol/Aquaman is my favorite.

Good stuff, Joe.

Heh, I'm not even an Idol fan. Just happen to like the song.

Anybody else still having problems with the site? It was workin' for some guys earlier, but it's still f*cked for me.

Account page is still wonky, too. Whatever, I needed an excuse to smoke.

yoss- I'll just go the safe route, and blame DannyBoy.
cipher - 2/18/2014, 7:07 PM
Or my ex.

I blame her for everything.

Even if it's not her fault, it's still her fault.

Billy Idol as Aquaman is awesome!
thor2273 - 2/18/2014, 8:32 PM
the Cradle of Love video is still one of the hottest music videos I've ever seen

@Joe - Cool stuff señor.......

@tankd, billy idol was in generation x, who was a huge influential punk band.
jessepostal - 2/19/2014, 11:55 AM
Hahaha wow, u seem so sure of how everything happened. Sounds like you only like one type of punk to me, Punk is an attitude not a style or a certain way you wear your doc martins. The clash was one of the most "punk" bands around because of what they sang about,London Calling was a huge f u to politics and how things don't have to be. Your saying because bands used less distortion and better lyrics makes them not punk?

and abc diablo would be classified under hardcore, if you want to be technical :)
Facade - 2/19/2014, 1:51 PM
Nice, but Billy Idol was never punk or new wave.
batesmotel - 2/19/2014, 3:51 PM
Morrissey should have been Animal Man instead
batesmotel - 2/19/2014, 5:05 PM
Ian Curtis is spot on. Robert Smith should have been Joker

I think Johnny would fit the Question.
