Fresh Take: Marvel Characters as Chinese Art

The latest Marvel fan-art to surface has a cultural twist, as an artist from Hong Kong named Tik Ka has taken the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — primarily those who are set to be featured in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War — and painted them in the style of ancient Chinese art.

As you can see, the results are spectacular. You could totally see these Avengers fitting in perfectly in an ancient Chinese opera, or showing up on a vase you’d buy on a trip to Beijing. Included among the characters in this series are Captain America, Iron Man, War Machine, the Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Hawkeye, the Vision, Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Spider-Man, and Civil War absentee Avengers Hulk and Thor. And seemingly just for shiggles, the artist has included Marvel’s most recent blockbuster action star Deadpool as well. Sure, why not?
