What do you get when you find a DORA checker board on the sidewalk, a random bag of chess pieces at a thrift store, and Marvel/DC heroclix at cons for 25-50 cents a piece?

My very own Marvel vs DC Chess set!













The top of the board, I used pictures that I found online and just basic black cardstock. On the sides of the Dora box, I covered it up with different panels from my extra comics. I modpodge and laminated everything. I don't have pictures of the sides of the box but can post them if people want to see them.

I E6000 the heroclix figures, after I cut them off their base, to the chess pieces. The pawns are left as is.

For DC I used: Scarecrow, Batgirl, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, The Joker, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, and Raven
For Marvel I used: Elektra, Moonstar, Deadpool, Logan, Jubilee, Pyslocke, Moon Kinght, and Beast.

Now to learn how to play chess!

This. Is so. Completely. Epic. I think I would actually sit down and learn to play chess if I had a chess set like this to play with Smiley Lovely job.
