Japanese Spider-Man Returns At Last This November In Marvel’s ‘Spider-Verse’

An emissary from Hell, Spiderman!

The Craziest International Bootleg Superheroes

Return to Supermans
Return to Supermans

While superheroes as we know them are largely American creations, characters like Superman, Spider-Man and Batman are highly recognizable not only this country, but all over the world. So can we really blame other countries for wanting to take them and make them their own? Well, in strictly terms of copyright, yes, but in spirit, ComicsAlliance celebrates the bizarre, ridiculous bootleg mashups of our most memorable heroes with the low production values of moviemakers in diverse cultures around the globe
