It goes without saying that superheroes have a special place in many of our hearts. As long as they kick ass on a cosmological level, people will always find that fascinating.

This leads many to pay tributes to their favorite superheroes—whether in the form of visual, audio, or any other type of art.

And, well, there’s Wire Hon, who makes use of forced perspective photography to come up with a whole slew of situations involving him and his numerous action figures, which inevitably become life-sized players in his take on photography.

Since our first visit of his photos, Hon has been hard at work creating a ton of new content for our lovely Pandas to gawk at. So, scroll down and check out Hon’s latest pics in the curated list below, and why not also get to know him more in our exclusive interview with him!

If you’re not aware, forced perspective photography is exactly what it sounds like—photography where things in the foreground and background are forced to look like they are on the same plane as everything else that’s the focus of the picture, or vice versa.

Or, in other words, it makes big and small objects look small or big in that respective order because it messes with your mind and it’s cool.

So, Wire Hon, with whom Bored Panda got in touch, does this very trick, except he includes superhero action figures into his compositions with amazing and hilarious results.

Back in 2017, Hon was looking for creative images on Google and stumbled upon a picture of a puppet that underwent forced perspective. That was his lightbulb moment.

“At that time, I wondered if I could also take a photo with my action figure series, so I started to try it,” said Hon. “Gradually, many people started liking and supporting this idea.”

To be exact, Hon currently has over 105,000 followers on Instagram with another 40,000 on Facebook.

The setup is fairly simple, as explains Hon: “I usually combine current events, comics, and events around me to create the pictures. Then I choose a hero suitable for the scene, and then take it from there according to the characteristics of the hero itself.”

And the end result is any number of superheroes interacting with him, his wife, his sons, or all of them at the same time to create casual yet surreal and pretty funny situations.

Besides action figures—the likes of Spider-Man, Superman, Deadpool, the Hulk, Wolverine, Batman, and a bunch of others—Hon also uses various props like tiny scooters, brooms, syringes, chairs, and anything else that fits the scene.

But putting everything into perspective is actually more challenging than it sounds. Hon explains that the most challenging part is setting up the posture of the action figures.

You see, they have to look natural, like they belong in the photo and are actually interacting with the different objects and layers, leading to some meticulous adjusting and readjusting of action figures during shooting.

Hon has thoughts of doing something inspired by Squid Game, but he never really plans any of his pictures—everything just goes with the flow for him.

But something that he is certain of is his favorite superhero: “I like all superheroes, whether they are Marvel or DC characters. Of course, my favorite is Superman, who was the first hero I knew when I was a kid.”
