We’ve talked before about how great Phil Noto’s art blog is, but recently Noto started a new series of images: From The Hank Pym Photo Archives. Featuring classic Marvel characters in retro settings, the series acts as photographs of familiar faces in entirely non-superheroic settings.
Or, to put it much more simply, it’s just a collection of awesome.
Check behind the cut to see the current collection of “photographs,” as well as an added bonus at the bottom.

From the Hank Pym Photo Archives- “So Reed and Sue decided to throw a dinner party to welcome the Attilan Royal Family to New York. It was quite the to-do. Just about everyone in the hero circle was there. Black Bolt, Medusa, et al. were a bit surprised I suspect, but very appreciative. I got some nice shots of the budding romance between Medusa’s sister, Crystal and Johnny Storm. I think Sue may have introduced them before but the “sparks” were definitely flying that night.
Black Bolt seemed a bit stoic and standoff-ish, not really mingling, but since apparently a single utterance would level a couple of city blocks, I guess you couldn’t blame him. I think everyone was slightly in awe of him, as he had such a regal presence. Janet, of course, seemed to hit it off with him as I spied the two them later in the evening tucked away in a corner “talking” about who knows what.” – Henry PymContinued below

|Betsy Braddock 1982- So last night Rick Remender alerted me to the fact that Psylocke’s purple hair was actually a conscious fashion choice that British model, Betsy made in 1982. So as Ricky Bobby would say, ” I like to picture my Betsy Braddock as a punk rocker hanging out the club wearin’ her Joy Division t-shirt, drinkin’ beer and smokin’ them fancy cigarettes.” Amen.|
