Iron Man and Spider-Man Snowmen Patrol a Wintery Backyard

Mother Nature may have dumped a load of snow onto Cheshire, England last week, but the frost did nothing to stifle the fan fire burning in the heart of Matthew Connor, who braved the elements to build Iron Man and Spider-Man snowmen in his back yard for his 5-year-old son.

Check out Iron Man’s snow landing and Spidey crawling on a brick wall after the jump.

We got in touch with Connor, who was nice enough to shoot us some photos of his handiwork, to learn a little more about his inspiration to construct the powdery heroes.
Inspired by my 5 year old son’s love for the Marvel Alliance characters, I made them for him. We have Spider-Man and Iron Man costumes for him, the Marvel Ultimate Alliance game for Xbox we even have the bath characters, all twelve of them, which we fight with every bath time.

The snowmen were made December 1st and 2nd 2010, in our back garden at home, in some of the lowest temperatures seen in the UK for a long time, but worth every frozen finger. Unfortunately the snow has turned to ice otherwise there might have been a Silver Surfer to send you, that’s the next on the list if we have anymore snow…”

For his sake and ours, I hope Cheshire sees another snow or two this winter.

I think Adi Granov would be proud.
