In the world of superhero comics, we're most certainly no strangers to so-called "good guys" going bad, but at long last, even we have to wonder: Is no one immune to the siren call of supervillainy?! Is there no one so wholly devote to the cause of good that evil cannot sink its cruel talons into their soul?! Can any wholesome cuteness triumph over the wicked inclinations of life as an arch-criminal?!
It seems it cannot, because now, Hello Kitty has become a supervillain. Or at least, she's dressing like one in the latest licensing collaboration between Sanrio and DC Comics, which features everyone's favorite icon of cuteness cosplaying as a trio of Batman villainesses.
With Batman's gallery of foes being as iconic and adaptable as it is, it's not exactly rare to see an artist take a shot at doing their own interpretation of characters like the Joker and Two-Face. It is, however, a pretty uncommon treat to see them done as well, and with as much thought, as artist M.S. Corley has put into his take the Dark Knight's deadliest foes.
To be honest, the best work that Corley has done with these is in the accessorizing. That might sound weird, but the idea of the Joker wearing a straitjacket as a jaunty cloak, putting the Scarecrow in a Plague Doctor mask or giving Mr. Freeze his wife's scarf to add a touch of humanity is a really cool idea. Check 'em out, along with a few of Corley's notes, below!

Superhero comics have a diversity problem. The leading characters are largely male, mostly white, and overwhelmingly straight. By definition, well-established characters come from an era when the culture was even straighter, whiter and more male than it is today, and as a result the characters fail to represent the diversity of their audience.
