Type geeks: Here’s the entire Helvetica alphabet, turned into super heroes

For all you Helvetica lovers out there (myself included, although we are taking a break), French design student and illustrator René Mambembe has managed to turn the Helvetica alphabet into iconic super heroes and villains, while still keeping with the original characters (pun intended).

As you can see below, everything from the Hulk to Alien and Dr. Octopus to Flash has been covered. So, if you’re typographically driven and love geeky stuff like comics, this is likely the best possible way to introduce the alphabet to your current or future children.

F**k it, we'll do it live!
