Genderbent Avengers Assemble!

by Russ Burlingame

Over at the Fan Art Exhibit blog, the same Photoshop artist who did an "If Women Ruled the Earth" photo manipulation that re-cast the male castmembers of The Dark Knight using roughly equivalent actresses and Photoshop, has sequelized the idea with a second trio of manipulations that bring female Captain America, Thor and Iron Man.

Check out the images below, with a bit of commentary from the artist.
