Witty superhero business cards perfectly sum up iconic crime fighters

A3

Many comic book crime fighters are content to let a pile of unconscious criminals be their calling card. Maybe a few of them affix a note to one of the hog-tied bad guys, but that’s about it. But what if superheroes had business cards like every other working person? A batch of superhero business cards have appeared at 123 Print’s blog; a team of designers at the UK company created a set of business cards for Marvel and DC heroes, each one customized to the hero’s personality and line of work.

The business cards feature a lot of graphic design innovation and specific references. Daredevil’s is done in braille, Captain America’s touts his World War II history, Green Arrow’s addresses his signature weapon and Spider-Man’s incorporates the hero’s agility in a surprising way.

You can see all of the cards on 123 Print’s blog.

Heh…

Let’s see… The Lobster, The Question and the Salinger & Gerhardt Foolkillers all had calling cards, and Midnighter eventually put his whole “I’ve seen this fight a thousand times” spiel on a business card eventually. I think Fake Mutant Hunter X-Factor had them too. Heroes for Hire, of course, and Damage Control. I don’t remember seeing cards in the Power Company but I’m sure they had ‘em.

Some of these seem a bit too silly for their superhero, but I think the Spiderman card is absolutely spot on! I could totally see pp leaving that!

Does anyone “speak” Braille to translate DD’s card?

I feel like the Joker already has those cards and hands them out. But some are randomly laced with a deadly poison that enters the bloodstream thru the skin.
