I'd long considered doing a superhero-themed alphabet but I'd resisted for a variety of reasons, including the sheer immense scope of the superhero universe and the fact that there were other similar pieces out there.

Ultimately, however, superheroes and comics were such an important part of my childhood that I couldn't ignore them. So I added a bit of a challenge: I wanted to represent 26 heroes and 26 villains from a specific universe. I wanted to stick to their face and upper torso only (which meant, among other things, no wheelchair for "X" or extra arms for "o")

Introducing.... the Marvelphabet:

Also available in straight hero and villain versions:

Have fun guessing who is who.

  4. Loved your blog page!!! The stuff that you have remarked up here is superbly wonderful and I vigorously thank you for the same... auto deductible

  5. Hi, OMG these are amazing!!!! My grandson is turning 4 & his Daddy died a few months ago so we are throwing him a big birthday bash Marvel Superhero & Villains. His favorites are Venom & Carnage. Can I buy these letters from you? I made him a bedspread & pillow case from the characters but I wanted to add his name to it in your letters. Please let me know. Or if I can print them & make them Iron on (not sure). Thank you soooooo much. He would just love them!
    Thank you, Tammy Joy
