List Rules Vote up the kid version of superheroes you think are just plain awesome.

Some of the most clever superhero fan-art isn't just drawings of your favorite characters, but rather a creative interpretation or new spin on an old classic. That's exactly what Alberto Varanda did with his collection of fan art of superheroes as kids. Since their debut in the early 1900s, superheros have taken the world by storm - both literally and figuratively. Their amazing adventures and tales have inspired fans to create their own interpretations of the various masked vigilantes, like genderbent Marvel fan art

Varanda gives us a look at some young superheroes, including drawings of young Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man. He even includes some lesser known comic book characters imagined as kids such asKa-Zar Lord of the Jungle, Shazam, and Phoenix. Check out Varanda's collection of fan art of superheroes as children below and vote up the illustrations that are just too darned amazing.
