After a Cease-and-Desist from Marvel, Artist Re-Imagines Superhero Poster

Last February, Michael Mateyko of the design team KOMBOH created the awesome “The Avengers: 50 Years of Earth’s Mightiest Super-Heroes” poster, which features a graphic timeline of Marvel superheroes that spans from 1963 to 2013.

The folks over at Marvel Entertainment saw Mateyko’s poster. Great news, right? Not so much. KOMBOH announced on their website, “Marvel threw a cease-and-desist letter at us and we had to remove all the Avengers and other comic stuff.”

In a well-played response, KOMBOH has release a modified and highly censored version of the poster featuring a new-ish cast of superheroes with names like Tinman and Nordic Thunder.
