Avengers Captain America Iron Man Black Panther SHe Hulk Captain Marvel Ghost Rider Blade

Marvel fan and artist Dodgy Dogma shares AI-generated artwork featuring some of the franchise’s most popular heroes as ’90s hip hop performers.

Reddit user Dodgy Dogma, a self-proclaimed nerd having fun with AI-generated art pieces typically meant for tabletop role-playing games, has released several artistic renderings of prominent Marvel Cinematic Universe characters as classic ’90s style hip hop artists.

The latest pieces released by the artist, which feature Iron Man, Black Panther and the Hulk, can be viewed on Dodgy Dogma’s Reddit page. Dodgy Dogma describes the style as 50 percent mid-journey and 50 percent photoshop. Unlike previously released artwork, the three latest pieces received titles.

The Iron Man image, entitled “Tony as our MC,” is reminiscent of the Iron Man 2 birthday party scene in which an intoxicated Tony Stark scratches some records and shoots some fruit until War Machine clears out the party. The second piece, “T’Challa as the slam poet,” features Black Panther holding a microphone with a stylish new haircut slipping out from under his helmet and a leather jacket with rolled sleeves covering his Vibranium suit. In addition to the philanthropist billionaire and the Wakandan king, Dodgy Dogma released a piece for the Hulk, with “Bruce the Bouncer” in a cutoff vest wearing a gold chain with spiked hair.

Before this latest drop, Dodgy Dogma had already completed punk rock renditions of Thor and his nefarious brother Loki, dubbed “The God of Mischief and Moshpits” by user 68ideal. Thor’s artwork has the God of Thunder wearing his Donald Blake alias t-shirt from the first Thor film, wielding a much larger and grittier version of Mjolnir. The Loki piece dresses the God of Mischief in a grungy t-shirt, with his horns seemingly growing right out of his head. When Dodgy Dogma asked fans for suggestions for other artwork, BellaFrequency suggested Miles Morales with his graffiti and Black Widow as a breakdancer. WickedMarvel08 also commented that “the Guardians would be sick.”

AI-generated art is a relatively new medium, with deep learning algorithms, or generative adversarial networks, referred to as GANs, first introduced in 2014. Several fans have asked Dodgy Dogma if prints of the artwork are available for purchase, and they are at the artist’s page on RedBubble, where a ’90s Spider-Man in a worn-down hoody and a punk rock Odin are also for sale. In addition to Marvel renditions, Dodgy Dogma has dedicated artistic endeavors to generating minotaurs, centaurs, sea serpents, and even an owlbear, all high-quality reference art meant for tabletop role-playing games. Some of the pieces are also available printed on black t-shirts.
