See Marvel’s Avengers Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before

An exclusive look at Mike Mitchell's original take on these iconic superheroes

Mike Mitchell, an artist perhaps best known for his rendition of Conan O’Brien in his iconic “I’m With COCO” poster, has teamed up with Austin’s Mondo Gallery to present approximately 50 portraits of characters from throughout the Marvel universe. His subjects range from the popular Avengers such as Iron Man and Captain America to lesser-known characters within the Marvel pantheon such as Black Cat and Mysterio.

My love for Marvel Comics was an integral part of growing up,” Mitchell said in a press release. “Not just the comics, but the action figures, video games and cartoons. My intention with this show was to take those characters out of their action-oriented world and give them a moment of silence to catch their breath. There’s a humanizing quality to that which I find extremely interesting.”

Mitchell’s Marvel portraits will be featured in the “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo” exhibit at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX from April 25 through May 17.
