Fat Heroes, an illustration of overweight comic superheroes

by Felicia Calle

The fat heroes series were created in 2013 by, the Mexican-based graphic illustrator and designer, Carlos Dattoli. The Mexican artist brings a new step in geek culture by transforming our everyday healthy heroes through obesity, giving in some points a better reality of modern society.

Pop culture icons originally portrayed as ultra-ripped such as the stars from the Marvel cinematic universe, characters of Dragon Ball, and the Power Rangers, have been given rounded silhouettes and more pronounced bellies.
