Marvel’s heroes are charged with protecting the world from evil, so when there’s a break from the chaos, who’s to say they don’t deserve a little time off to relax on the beach? The Marvel Swimsuit Specials of the ‘90s imagined what this would look like in a collection of drawings done in the style of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit specials, showing Marvel mainstays in their swimmies enjoying a day on the sand. And now they’re making a comeback of sorts.
Spurred on by comic writer Leah Williams tweeting about the need for Marvel Swimsuit Specials to return and centered around the #MarvelSwimsuit2018 hashtag created by artist Megan Levens, fans artists and pro creators alike have been showing off their own drawings of Marvel heroes having fun in the sun. Check out a few of our favorites below.
