A group of comic artists have started a new Tumblr-based project that creatively illustrated popular celebrities, such as Tilda Swinton and David Bowie, as the new faces of the heroes and villains in an imagined “gender-swapped” DC universe.

Known as ‘#DCBend’ on Tumblr, the project featured impressive illustrations of various characters, whose genders were reversed, from the DC universe.

For instance, Sigourney Weaver was imagined as Bruce Wayne of Batman, while David Bowie was depicted as Poison Ivy.
