In an alternate universe, manatee superheroes

Here’s a suggestion to Marvel and DC: In order to save on payroll, remove Robert Downey Jr., Ben Affleck, Scarlett Johansson, and all the other high-budget stars, and replace them with manatees. Who better to portray fantastical characters than the mermaids of the sea themselves! For us to have a picture of what this possibility would look like, US-based Joel Micah Harris has come up with an illustrated series of various superheroes being portrayed by manatees.

I don’t know, they all kind of look ok in manatee form. Maybe except for Wonder Woman and Black Widow – but don’t tell them they look like sea cows.
