Famous Chunkies: illustrator reimagines famous characters as overweight
Poor Batman, he’s gonna get a lot of ‘Yo Mama’ jokes with that gut hanging out of the Batsuit. In ‘Famous Chunkies’, Chicago-based artist Alex Solis reimagines many famous pop culture characters as having put on a few – ok maybe A LOT – of pounds.
Now overweight and obese, many of them are struggling to fulfill the butt-kicking stunts they once did. For instance, Spider-Man may not be as acrobatic as he used to be, seeing as he can’t even hang on to his webbing anymore. Superman? No longer faster than a speeding bullet. Super Mario? Can’t even fit in those green pipes anymore.
