Considering its massive box office take and favorable reviews, there's no doubt that there are plenty of The Avengers fans out there — to say nothing of the comic book property's legion of fans, some of whom have been reading the comic since its inception in the 1960s. In fact, the movie's popularity has inspired fans, with some creating a mash-up trailer that combined The Avengers with The Breakfast Club, while others made a chronological video of everything that was "wrong" about the movie.
While extreme Avengers fandom is fairly established, its nonetheless rare to find a fan of both The Avengers and The Powerpuff Girls. It was an immensely popular cartoon in its time to be sure, but one that ended its broadcast run in 2005 with only one 2002 movie made during the height of the cartoon's popularity. Enter Iros Yan, a Chinese Animation student whose Tumblr (via Comics Alliance) is filled with various illustrations of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup dressed as Captain America, Thor and Iron Man. Yan has also taken the opening credit sequence from the Powerpuff Girls cartoon and turned it into Powerpuff Avengers, who have the same origin as the Powerpuff Girls but tackle several Marvel comics villains such as Loki, Doctor Doom and, yes, Thanos.
