When was the last time you saw a plus-sized superhero?
We believe that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. We are tired of seeing all superheroes with the same figures. There should be diversity amongst superheroes so little kids can know that anybody could be a hero regardless of how they look. If we look at movies and heroes these days, they’re all in the skinny side of the size spectrum. We are sure any plus-sized superhero could kick butt just as much as any regular-sized superhero.
Eduardo Santos (aka Edull) is a Brazilian artist who got tired of the prejudice against plus-sized women and decided to reimagine superheroes as plus-sized women. And let me tell you, they are rocking their outfits. It has been quite a while since Edull has been working on this project and it shows in the work that they do.
“I have been working on this theme for almost 6 years now,” Edull told Bored Panda. “I want to show the world that all women are beautiful. They can be different from a social or visual point of view, but they all are beautiful.”
People can mistake this positivity for supporting obesity for which the artist cleared, “Some people say I’m glorifying obesity and that it’s not healthy. But who am I to tell someone what they can and can’t do with their bodies? I don’t know them… I don’t know why they’re fat, and it doesn’t matter to me.”
1. Plus-sized Iron Woman.
2. Plus-sized Batwoman.
4. Plus-sized Wolverine.
5. Plus-sized Captain America.
The artist wants people to feel more comfortable in their bodies. “What I can do is help them feel great in their bodies,” the artist added. “I can help them to be more confident and happier the way they are. And this is tremendously healthy. I’m glorifying the diversity of life.” People come in all shapes and sizes and it is time we stop judging people from their appearances. Scroll down below for more:
