Tezuka Characters as DC Heroes by maniacaldude Tezuka Characters as DC Heroes by maniacaldude
I'm not a big fan of comic books, but ever since I became a fan of Linkara & Atop The Fourth Wall (for whom I owe most of what little knowledge about comics I have), I came up with this idea about the East meeting the West. Basically, characters created by the late Osamu Tezuka dressed as DC superheroes. They are, clockwise:

Astro Boy as Superman
Sapphire (of Princess Knight fame) as Wonder Woman
Black Jack & Pinoko as Batman & Robin

The reasons I picked those are pretty obvious. (Doesn't Pinoko just make the cutest Robin?)

So yeah, not much but let me know what you think anyways.

All characters (c) Osamu Tezuka
All outfits (c) DC Comics

Tezuka actually drew something like this. Only he had all his male characters as Superman. Including Astro, Black Jack, and Mr. Mustachio. Sapphire was still Wonder Woman though.
Actually, one character was Batman. It was Hyotantsugi :iconhyoutanbounceplz:

Hee, awww! <3

Pinoko DOES make the cutest little Robin. Pffft, Black Jack as Batman works nicely.

Sapphire also makes a great Wonder Woman!

Awww, Astro. <3
