Artist Chung Kong celebrates superheroes and the classic Volkswagen Microbus in a pretty amazing poster series called “It’s Love That Gave Me Superpower!” It seems a fitting fitting for a vehicle that’s seen its fare share of love-ins and Grateful Dead concerts.
Kong reimagines the vans as if they were driven by such superheroes as Wonder Woman, The Thing, Superman and Captain America, with paint jobs and vanity plates to match their owners (Wonder Woman’s reads “Diana1941,” The Thing’s “Ben 1961,” and so on”).
“Superman is fortunate. He can fly without the need of any kind of vehicle,” Kong writes. “Other superheroes aren’t quite as lucky, having spent their childhoods as mere mortals before getting a spider bite or having their parents murdered. Most of them required something a little extra to transport them around the world. And let’s be honest, there are some awesome rides around in the superhero universe. But what if their rides weren’t as cool like the Christian Bale Batmobile or the kickass Mark 3 Iron Man Suit, what if their rides were ragged T1 Volkswagen Vans …”
Check out some of the posters below, and the rest on Kong’s website.
