Do you love superheroes? Of course you do. Do you love unlikely mashups of superheroes with large sea creatures? Well, if you didn't before, you will now. Thanks to one intrepid artist, we get to see what some of our favorite DC and Marvel characters look like as manatees.

This impressive merging of the wonders of the ocean with the wonders of the comic book page comes courtesy of artist Joel Micah Harris, who likes to sign his work with the moniker "Jomiha." He lists himself as a professional artist, and he's definitely got a lot of good work to back it up. Among the superheroes to get the manatee treatment so far are Spider-Man, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and even the Martian Manhunter.

Check out more superhero manatees below, and be sure to visit Harris' page at DeviantArt for more of his (non-manatee) work, or to order T-shirts.

Who would you like to see get the manatee treatment next? We're hoping for Wolverine.
