Josh Ln’s ‘Hero-Glyphics’ Take Pop Culture Back To Ancient Egypt With The Avengers, The X-Men And More

Heroglyphics by Josh Ln

When you think about ancient Egyptian superheroes, there aren't a whole lot that come to mind. Apocalypse was around back then, right?

Check 'em bout below to see hieroglyphic-style reimaginings of some of our favorite characters! And also Kick Ass.
