What if Superheroes were Hipsters?
While it’s true that the Internet’s relentless jihad against hipsters has become a bit of a bore (are we really done making fun of the Ed Hardy sickbros? Is there nothing left to say about yuppies?), some legit shock and awe has come in the form of a new feature at CollegeHumor. Artist Caldwell Tanner asks the question that has plagued so many of us here at ComicsAlliance: what if superheroes were hipsters

Please take special note of Hipster Iron Man’s recyclable Pabst Blue Ribbon armor (which he surely amassed over many $1-beer nights at the local karaoke bar), and Batman’s wholly in-character threat of RAGEQUITTING on an obnoxious Twitterer.
