Back in 2012, a concept artist named Larry T. Quach was working for visual effects company Rhythm And Hues, and was commissioned by them to create pitch art for a SpongeBob SquarePants movie, which went on to later become The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water.
Now, if you're still here, the commissioned concept art had Quach turn the titular sea sponge, his mates and nemesis into superheroes for an epic segment in the film. Using Marvel's Avengers as a pretty standard framework, his realizations of the heroic sea dwelling weirdos is, well, rather quite badass. Have a look...
SpongeBob SquarePants Is Captain America!
Patrick Star Is The Hulk!
Squidward Tentacles Is Thor!
Mr. Krabs Is Iron Man!
Plankton Is Loki!
It's a reel shame (get it?) that these interpretations didn't make it into the final film, because a proper SpongeBob/Avengers mash up would've been unstoppably awesome!
What do you guys think of the work?
