By taking Black actors and actresses of Hollywood, graphic designer and artist Alijah Villian has re-imagined heroes of the DC and Marvel Worlds. As to why he decided to go this route, he had this to say:
"As, I got older and fell in love with art and film, I realized there [was] a shortage of Black Superheroes portrayed in film."
