In adherence with my 'make something unbelievably stupid and pointless every day' policy, it's the 'Avengers' poster. With Ankh-Morpork City Watch characters. Here's the original, of course:
I saw The Avengers a couple of nights ago and it was a blast.
Commander Sam Vimes is Ironhead (I was also considering Copperman or Stoneface).
Captain Carrot Ironfounderson is Captain Ankh-Morpork And Its Supporting Rural Environs.
Sergeant Detritus is The Incredible Splatter. It's like a Hulk, only splattier.
Sergeant Fred Colon is Wowhawk, expert marksman whose arrows seek out dragons' voonerables even - no especially - if it's a million-to-one shot.
Captain Angua Von Uberwold is Blonde Wolf. She spends a lot of her time pissed off, not least because somehow 'Blonde Wolf' fails mysteriously to sound as sexy and mysterious as 'Black Widow' or 'Scarlet Witch'.
Sergeant Cheery Littlebottom is (sorry) Phwoar.
They are brought together by the shadowy Havelock Vetinari, Agent of W.A.T.C.H. (probably) to protect the Disc from threats the like of which it has never - well, yet another cataclysmic threat, anyway.
Everything is mine, except the background elements which are stock. And the Tower of Art belongs to Jack Saxon.
This has had a really positive response on my DevArt page, which is comforting as - determined to finish the thing in the space of a day -b y the end of this I was pretty addled and sleep deprived and wasn't at all sure it was even funny any more. Apart from 'Phwoar'. I was pretty sure that was funny.
Not only was this not on my list of 'worthwhile and useful things to spend my time on this week' it was about third down on my list of 'stupid but fun time-wasting projects'. Oh well.
