Best of Hail HYDRA: The New Marvel Meme Sweeping The Internet

According to Know Your Meme, the “Hail HYDRA” meme has been around a while because, well, HYDRA is a Marvel Comics institution. But they cite Twitter user ‏@ReyEstupendo (his Bert & Ernie above) as the first to start the current iteration spawning from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It reminds me of the #TrueDetectiveSeason2 meme which was equally entertaining, but not nearly as nerdy. Anyway, recent events have caused it to completely explode and we’ve captured a measly 21 amusing instances of it we’ve found online.

For A More Civilized Age

Painted Memes Are a Classy Look Back at Internet Comedy

Memes are a modern art form. I don’t mean that in the sense of spilled soup cans displayed at the MoMA or Marina Abromovic staring people in the face for hours on end (though if that art is your cup of tea, power to you), but rather I mean it in the sense that it is a medium that is thoroughly linked to the current internet culture.

So it only makes sense that Laura Kaelin would make a Tumblr full of memes rendered as actual works of art– in full painted-on-canvas glory. Her blog is called Bejameme. Kaelin named her blog for Walter Benjamin: the German author of “The Work of Art in an Age of Mechanical Reproduction”, a commentary penned in 1936 about the dawn of photography and how it would affect the art world. Considering the concept of her project, the name could not be more apt.
