How to Get Your Kid's Face on Spider-Man's Body

cool superhero giftsIf you’ve got a young boy you know what the superhero phase is all about.

They love the shows, the action figures, and the costumes.

Ah, the superhero costumes. Most days you’re lucky if you can get him out of it long enough for a bath.

Check out these pictures of kids obsessed with wearing their costumes everywhere.

What if you could make your kid a superhero? A real one.

After the jump, how artists will make your kid’s fantasy come true with a cool superhero gift.

The Comics Factory is a stable of artists who have licensed the likeness of Marvel® Comics superheroes to be done up like you, your family, or your kid.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Marvel® would sign up for this kind of family involvement. Back in May a story broke about a boy who wouldn’t wear his hearing aid because he thought Superheroes didn’t wear them. Mom petitioned Marvel® to create a hero to inspire her kid, and The Blue Ear was born. Genius.

This is that sort of inspirational stuff you can have created by The Comics Factory, or you can go with the traditional arsenal of Spider-Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Daredevil, or Iron Man.

The process is simple. You fire off a photo, work with an artist to get the right background image, and end up with a real piece of canvas art showcasing your family as superheroes.

Check out some of the examples:
