Fan Art Friday: Butcher Billy’s Legion of Real Life Supervillains

The Legion of Real Life Supervillains by Butcher Billy

Comics may have some of the coolest villains of all time, but the most evil bad guys of all time are definitely the ones in real life. So what happens when you combine the two? Well, in this case you get The Legion of Real Life Supervillains by Brazilian artist and designer Butcher Billy. According the Billy, the series of prints, each depicting a real life “villain” merged with a fictional comic book counterpart, were “an experiment where a dictator, a psycho, a murderer (sometimes they are the whole package) or even a suspicious figure from real life is mashed with a comics bad guy – strangely related some way or the other with his counterpart.”
