You'll Want To Applaud This Chinese Opera And Marvel Character Mashup

A surprisingly perfect combo.

This artwork definitely deserves a standing ovation. 

Hong Kong-based artist Tik Ka combined elements from traditional Chinese opera with Marvel characters as part of a mashup series called "Opera Circle Avengers," according to a HuffPost translation.

The result is just spectacular. 

The series includes opera characters influenced by Iron Man, Deadpool and the Hulk, among others. To create the artwork, Tik Ka used a pencil to draw the outlines and later filled in color on the computer. 

The artist told HuffPost in an email that he grew up in Hong Kong while it was still under British rule. The experience, he said, explains his fascination with both Eastern and Western cultures -- something that's reflected in his series. 

Well BRB, Marvelling at the pictures.
