The Marvel Universe Dominates The Olympics In The Art Of Francesco Francavilla

By 02.14.14


Francesco Francavilla is probably my favorite comic book artist working today. Whether it’s Batman, Black Beetle or zombified Archie, this guy knocks everything he does out of the park. Well, in honor of the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Francesco is doing a series featuring Marvel characters competing in various winter Olympic sports. Sorry DC fans, looks like Batman and Superman have boycotted these games. Well, that or they’re still stuck in their hotel bathrooms.

Check out some images from Francesco’s Super Olympics below…

Well, here’s one way to spice up the biathlon. 




The only thing that would make this better is if it were two-man luge with Falcon. 



Get your head down Reed! Surely a scientist like you should understand aerodynamics!

The plan is to continue posting a new Marvel Olympics image ever day for the remainder of the games — you can check them out as they’re posted at Francesco’s Tumblr.
