A peek inside Alex Ross’ studio (and his collection)

I’m a huge fan of Alex Ross’ work, especially for DC Comics. I have a couple graphic novels that he did the artwork for, and they’re some of my favourite books.

CBS This Morning’s Anthony Mason visited Ross in his studio, and spoke to him about his career painting superheroes. Ross’ “toy” collection, alone, is worth watching this video for.

I especially like how he paints Superman. He manages to blend this raw power you’d expect from the Man of Steel with a deep humanity.

All the superheroes’ and villains’ weaknesses in a handy infographic

I am a huge comic superhero fan and I came across this awesome infographic that documents all the superheroes’ and villains’ weaknesses on MorphSuits site:

Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive – Superman is almost indestructible. However, the Man of Steel has the most famous Achilles heel in comic history. Confront him with Kryptonite, and he immediately loses his powers.

Superman isn’t the only comic book character with a significant weakness. Heroes and villains alike can be defeated with adamantium, and many characters depend on their suit to survive.

We’ve charted the Achilles Heel of famous superheroes and villains, from Wolverine to the Green Lantern. Explore these weaknesses in our infographic below!
