It seems like everybody wants to be a superhero these days, even the maintenance droids. Illustrator Steve Berrington made it happen for perhaps the most famous droid of them all, R2-D2 from Star Wars, in a new series that imagines what the little guy would look like dressed up as various superheroes.
Yes, it’s another pop-culture mashup, but the thing is that these pictures actually look pretty cool. And since most of them seem to be DC superheroes like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash, rather than Marvel, we don’t have to worry about any of these R2-D2 costumes coming to a theater near you any time soon (actually, maybe that’s not a good thing after all).
You can see what I mean by taking a look at Steve Berrington’s R2-D2 superhero costumes in the gallery below. And if you want to see more from the artist, you can take a look at his online portfolio right here.
Here’s the gallery:
