ANIMATION OF THE DAY: If superheroes were hipsters

By Michael Cavna


Wonder Woman piloting an invisible Prius? Thor as a manbagging art major? And Hulk wreaking havoc only ironically?

Hipsters routinely come in for cartoon mockery -- from the comic "Hipster Hitler" to the sketches in "Stuff Hipsters Hate." Today, though, we spotlight the latest inspired animation from the dependably sophomoric folk at College Humor.
