    Making your own “superhero art” is as easy as uploading a picture.

    “We were able to get licensing rights from Marvel to use their superheroes,” says co-founder Assi Glikshtein.

    The whole idea “is to be whoever you want to be,” he says.

    Once you approve your carefully crafted image, it goes to print on canvas board paper and then is stretched out by hand. Prices begin at $110.

    Spider-Man is the most requested superhero, but with “The Avengers” almost here, Captain America is in high demand.
