Bears. They are great. Superheroes. They too are great. Bears and superheroes together? Well, you tell me - great or not great? The answer should be obvious, but in case it's not, let's explore the topic further.

Over at King Panpan, Julius Santiago has been drawing a different bear every single day since 2010 began. But these aren't your average bears... these are bears inspired by popular culture, many of them inspired directly by the comic book genre.

Ever wondered what Galactus would look like as a bear? Wonder no more with Planet Nommer. Would Clint Barton look ridiculous as a bear? Just ask the Purple Arrow yourself. How would Batman reconcile his animal-inspired code name if he was a bear? Easily - he's just straight up Bruce.

That's not even scratching the surface of what's already available, and with plenty more days left in the year, you know that Santiago is just getting started. Time to put in your bear requests now!
