Note: Check out these awesome Victorian-themed redesigns of Batman and Superman from our pal Matthew Humphreys! I especially dig this Batman’s grapple gun! I wish DC would bring back Elsewords. – Dean Trippe
These ARE very good. Wraparound symbols like the one Bats is sporting there are a particular favourite design element of mine.
I saw this on DeviantART and hoped you guys would feature it. I love the Batman especially. That cape is incredible.
Please make this happen!
Nice! Love the intricate design of the gun that Batman is holding.
Design of Supe is appropriate too.
Wonder if Matthew design the rest of the League in Victorian Period.
Batman looks great, but that Superman is incredible. Truly inspired.
I adore that superman. The white pants just work, I can’t explain it.
Man, that is one cool Batman. The design would work ok for a current Batman, too. Love the Supes. I hope we get Robin in this style eventually.
I would read the hell outta of a book starting either one of these characters. Really digging Superman’s sash. It’s a great solution to having the logo while keeping the more formal Victorian look intact.
These could also be “Disney” versions of DC characters. Tell me you can’t see that Superman rescuing *insert any Disney Princess here* from that Batman? But it would be a big misunderstanding and the two heroes would band together and fight the real villain…after they fought to a draw first of course!
I love the attention to detail. Superman’s logo diamond on the cuffs: Brilliant.
The logo on Batman’s costume is genius.
Superman looks good too, although this look predates the Victorian era. It’s more Georgian style, so there’s about a hundred years between these looks.
But that’s just my fashion history nerd talking.
That Superman is better than the original.
The Superman may have existed and must have looked just like that, with even the “S”! SIMON BOLIVAR was his name, the biggest name in Latin American History.
Although it looks nice, Superman is wearing upper class clothes, doesn’t match the character at all.
I agree with Arthur, if Supes was raised by salt o’ the earth farmer types, he wouldn’t be so posh looking. I’d picture him in more of a working man soldier’s getup, a hero ALL the people could get behind. Maybe this Supes was found by the upper crust though, the poor Kent’s working on the lord’s estate found the baby, but he was raised in the manor. :)
Jordy, you make me sad.
I’m really loving Superman’s look.
The steam punk Batman looks awesome. That would be a really great spinoff. Imagine all the cool brass gadgets they could dream up for him.
This is awesome, but it is Batman who has money not Superman, so why is it that Batman’s costume doesn’t look splendid. Bruce Wayne has money to spare, while farmer boy Clark Kent doesn’t.
