Japanese artist HotKenobi has captured the eye of both Robert Downey Jr. and Stan Lee, with each passing comment on the Osaka-based photographer's Instagram page.
HotKenobi's cleverly constructed action figure photos are gaining a growing list of diehard fans, so much so that #IronMan himself and the Marvel Comics bigwig have both taken notice. We're pretty sure someone would had to have picked HotKenobi off the floor after these online comments came to light.
It's Times Like These When I Realize What A Superhero I Am
Many of us were swept up in #PokemonGo fever for a while there, so it's reassuring to know that even Captain America and Iron Man had just as much trouble tracking down #Pikachu as the rest of us did. "Gotta catch 'em all, Steve!"
Is This Photo A Marvel Favorite?
The fact that both #RobertDowneyJr and #StanLee enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek humor of this picture enough to pass comment speaks volumes — no pun intended. Their individual takes on the hilarious scenario shows how well HotKenobi has connected with his audience.
Indeed, the comic creator famously inserts himself into the Marvel Cinematic Universe by way of fun, blink-and-you'll-miss-'em cameos. Hopefully the same idea has not eluded HotKenobi with his future portrayal of a superhero tableau.
If Only This Battle Took Place IRL
HotKenobi does not exclusively photograph the #MCU. He also boasts a great collection of scenes from the #DCEU and #StarWars. What is so fantastic about his work is how well he combines the many iconic characters of these competing universes into one world of realistic fun and mischief.
As his popularity grows, it will be fascinating to see who will be making comments in the future. Wouldn't it be insane if RDJ and #BenAffleck gave their two cents about the above epic battle? If only.
