The Most Badass Oracle Image You’ll Ever See


Earlier in the week I saw the most amazing Oracle fan art being spread around. I found the source: Miguel Mercado, aka merkymerx, and asked for permission to share more of his badass illustrations of DC and Marvel women with you.

Seriously though, if that image of Barbara Gordon doesn’t motivate you to get your ass into shape, I don’t know what will. Mercado says he was inspired by both Norman Rockwell and Adam Hughes for this one.


Captain Marvel


Emma Frost


Bruce and Carrie Kelly


Mohawk Storm!


Wonder Woman






I couldn’t help but include this bonus depiction of Daisy Ridley’s Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Check out more of Mercado’s fantastic work on DeviantArt, Facebook, and Tumblr!

    Exquisite work. Especially that Emma Frost.

  2. Headline is accurate.

  3. Oracle! I was literally thinking to myself about how much I miss Oracle this morning. It’s weird, but since 2011, it’s never really stopped.

    Ha! I discovered that Oracle image a couple weeks ago and fell in love with it instantly. It combines two of my favorite things: Babs defying disability stereotypes and Linda Hamilton’s first scene in T2. It was so cool I had to share it in the comments for the most recent Batgirl to Oracle episode.

    Classiest drawings I’ve seen in a long time. Awesome.

    I always appreciate when an artist draws Emma Frost with ACTUAL clothes…

    Love that Oracle, and Emma Frost
