The idea came from taking all of my favorite heroes/super heroes and making a big collage out of them making them fight side to side rather than against one another like in many versus games. Then I had the idea of making a poster out of it by re-drawing the pictures that I had already put in the sketch. I had about 1 week and a half to complete this poster since a Print shop deal was about to expire lol I spent at least 50 hours on this work (more than any drawing in my life). To finish it A.S.A.P. I had to speed paint and copy/trace the original drawings and I added my own little touch from time to time.

I want this poster to look like the original characters in their original poses but all drawn in the same art style. There is a total of 60 characters in this poster. I credited the companies that have published the comis/games/cartoons containing these characters as well as the where I got the title from. For those who would say this isn't exactly my work, I do believe this to be my artwork because every line and inch of color was put there by me.
