Superheroes are no strangers to public makeovers. Sometimes the actor portraying a superhero changes every few years, while the visual effects that enhance another hero are upgraded with a new sequel. However, I’m not too sure any superhero could recover from a hipster makeover.
If you ever wondered what your favorite web-slinger would look like in full hipster mode, today is your lucky day. College Humor turned all of your favorite heroes into the self-conscious, anti-establishment personalities that are found creating new trends on every street corner.
We’ve picked a few of our favorites to share. There’s no getting by the best one of all, though: Hipster Spider-Man is nearly unbeatable. By blending Spider-Man with the latest celebrity meme – prancing Michael Cera – we are graced with one of the funniest depictions of late.
We definitely love Hipster Hulk, with his ultra-emo hair and Bruce Banner belt buckle. Another great one is Hipster Iron Man, who can’t seem to shake his love for Pabst Blue Ribbon.
I would definitely pay good money to see a hipster version of The Avengers, starring Michael Cera and the rest of today’s young, “hip” actors. If the Pabst Blue Ribbon sponsorship is too difficult, I’m sure there is a great winter hat store willing to promote themselves.
It’s always funny to poke fun at the hipster crowd, and there’s no better method than blending them with the bright and shiny superheroes of today. It’s really not a far cry from “reality” to label Peter Parker as a hipster. Who knows what Marc Webb will bring to the table with Andrew Garfield in their adaptation of the web-slinging teenager in the new Spider-Man.
Head over to College Humor to check out the rest of the hipster superheroes. You’ll find a grumpy Aquaman, a slick Xavier, an Ellen Page Wonder Woman and a tweeting Batman.
