Who Are These Un-Masked Men in These Kids Superhero Books?
what is this I don't even
Writer Scott Snyder has uncovered something positively baffling in the pages of various easy-reader picture books based on Marvel and DC properties.
There are these two guys, one red head with glasses and a chin-beard, the other dark haired with side-burns. And they are everywhere.
Here they are with Lex Luthor,
and they even manage to class it up with Bruce Wayne.
According to Snyder, “Books are different compnaies, illustrated by different people. So… Who are these mystery hipsters?” Some kind of universal artistic trope? An example of the work of the Collective Unconscious?
Personally, we think the guy with glasses looks a bit like a young Rusty Venture.
