Swipe File: Ultimates 2 Vs Natalie Imbruglia
We all know that Nick Fury in Marvel's Ultimates series was based on Samuel L Jackson, so much, that Samuel would play the man in the Marvel Studios movies, and will star in the upcoming Avengers movie.
But did anyone notice another lookalike in the Ultimates cast? Little Bleeder Mike Powell did, when rerading the Ultimates 2 volume over Christmas. Hello Ultimate Wasp… and Natalie Imbruglia.
That's torn it.
In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, jokes, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself. If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn't judge, it's interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
