The Last Super

Since childhood I have always been fascinated with superheroes and what these characters represent. They are more than just muscle bound men in spandex; they embody certain ideologies and classic archetypes. Over the last couple decades, DC writers have done a major revamp of Superman and envisioned him as a Christ-like character sent to Earth to save man from himself. My piece, The Last Super, depicts the classic Leonardo Da Vinci painting as never seen before. Jesus and his 12 apostles have been replaced with Superman and his Justice League counterparts, with each JL member having some connection with the apostle they have replaced. For example, the apostle Matthew was often depicted in Christian art accompanied by the winged man from Revelations, here he is replaced by Hawkman.
