What Supervillains Looked Like In High School

If you have ever wondered what the supervillains in comic books looked like before they became evil, US-based DeviantArt illustrator GhostHause has made a pretty good guess.

Depicting well-known supervillains—including Two-Face and Loki—in what would have been their high school yearbook pictures, the images are both funny and surprisingly believable.

Capturing that awkward adolescent quality that so many high school students exude, the illustrations feature details that are stereotypical of teenagers—such as hooded sweaters, braces and geeky glasses.

By taking us back to their youth and inventing a history for them, the illustrator has made these fictional characters more real and relatable.
