12 pixel superheroes


This is an interesting experiment in pixels.  How many pixels does it take to recognize a superhero?  Apparently 12 will do.

All but one of them I knew instantly...

13, but mostly random. I suck at that, most of them I don't know...

It's amazing how much pop culture influences us, that we can instantly recognize a fictional character by a few colors arranged in a certain way.

17! Thanks for the few seconds of entertainment, sedge!

Got 19/21 as well for my first time, and I've never read a single comic either! Guessed a few, too lazy to bother with the elimination process! Haha. Cool concept though, and a good lesson to anyone who wants to design their own characters.

Sedgemonkey: Since when have super hero names NOT sounded silly?

Some of them you can kind of guess by process of elimination.  Some of the alternate names sound silly.

 I got 16/21 pretty good considering I didn't know all of the names.

 17/21. I totally recognized Plastic Man right away.

my best: 20/21 ... pretty good since I guessed on a couple

19/21 for me (guessed right twice).

Ack, I scored 13 out of 21. That's not too good, is it?

Zoomrix (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/14/2005 23:14
I'm a superhero master! I've guessed about 9/10 right. That's pretty smart to just make something like that. Good find sedge.

got 18 outta 21...hah, I rock at comics, and never read a single one....wait...does that mean I'm still a nerd?...(damn)...
