Just received this optical illusion submission from two sources, almost at the same time. Usually when such things happen, it means that the illusion in focus just went viral around the net. I guess same goes for the comic below. Depending on are you a Marvel Universe or DC Comics Universe fan, you might see this illusion differently. So what is it? Which superhero did you see first? Was it Wolverine, or two Batmans instead? BTW, what is the plural for Batman? Is it Bat Men or Batmans? Dunno…

Wolverine or 2 Bat Men ?

    Nice, it only took me second to see both, I like it.

      I say Wolverine first, sorry for the double comments I didn’t read your blurb first, which I usually do :) And there is no plural for Batman, because there is only ONE. :)

    • Grant says:

      Only one Batman? Not since Batman, Inc.! Bruce Wayne is taking the Batman name global!

  2. Saw Wolvarine Man first. As for which is proper, I think, Batmen is plural, and Batman is singular. (Example) I saw 4 Batmen at the party-I saw one Batman at the party. They were all having fun with Optical Illusions!!……

  6. ra'ed khader says:

  7. Karan says:


    2 in one~~

  8. Jimmy says:

    Funny. I saw Wolverine. Marvel is better.
    I think the plural of Batman is “Batmans”;
    Since Batman is a proper noun, kind of like
    2 Lady Gagas

  10. greg says:

    i saw wolverine

  11. alfred X says:

    i like them equally but saw wolverine first, however the batmanS looks more correct bc wolverine has a weird mouth….

  12. BRANDON says:

    its batman´s not bat men

    • guest says:

      There is no good reason for an apostrophe there. I’d go with “Batmans” as the plural for Batman; but the way you wrote it implies possession.

  13. Alice says:

    Cool illusion! (i think it looks more like wolverine)

  14. rad says:

    Nice illusion :) first?

  15. Josh says:

    Well there’s only one Bat Man, so I see Wolverine :)

  16. jelly says:

  17. monkeyguy217 says:

  19. SnowBerey says:

  20. Paco says:

    At first I saw wolverine, but when I zoomed in on it all I could see were two Batmen. A well done illusion in my opinion.

  21. Dolphin says:

    It’s two bat men in front of wolverine!

  22. October Hallow Skye says:

    LOL! I saw batman first mostly cause i was thinking of shade dressing up as batman for halloween in my best friend and I’s sonic Comics!

  23. coolkid says:

    definitly wolverine
    and i think u say batmen

  24. Tiffany MacDonald says:

    I saw Wolverine first. I lovee x-men :)

  25. a person says:

    ummm……thats pretty cool :-)……i think it might be batmans

  26. Kamil says:

    Everyone will see wolverine first becouse the BAT MEN are deformed, & Wolverine is not (except his face looks funny.)

    However if you don’t know who Wolverine is, and never seen his illustration, but you know BATMAN.
    Then I’d suppose you’d see him first.

  27. bsonor says:

    I agree with Josh, there is only one Batman, so it must just be Wolverine

  28. Josh says:

    LOVE IT! keep up the super hero illusions

  29. Autney Wagner Fernandes says:

    this is Birdman :P

  30. onyxfairy says:

    i saw wolverine first >w<

  31. Isaiah Alvarez says:

    This is just pretty cool

  32. Sean says:

    I saw Wolverine first.

  33. Mars says:

    WOLVERINE ALL THE WAY. I used to have a picture of Wolverine in my studio space oxoxo Then it got taken down *sob*

  34. Lukas says:

    I see Wolverine… As far as plural for Batman is concerned, I would say that Batman is actually a name. So I think that the plural must be: two Batmans, hm?
    I think Newman, for instance, is the right example. Whould you say two Newmen? I guess it is pretty the same case :-)

  35. Menno says:

    I just see a mean face with a double nose and two black earlike flaps.
    So they have parts of both heroes but I can´t see two different faces…

  36. iwillthmackyou says:

    Seriously lame….

  37. ccmum says:

    I saw the Wolverine thing first, then the 2 Batmans, but after that I struggle to see Wolverine again. BTW, I’m not a comic fan at all.

  38. mikewozere says:

    This is a work by Olly Moss. Originally it didn’t pose the question of whether it was batmen or wolverine because it assumed it’s audience wasn’t stupid.

  39. Myth says:

    I see 1 batman looking into a mirror to look for some clues and saw his own reflection (after a little pondering of if it is batmen or batmans, well, firefox’s spell check underlined batmans but not batmen, so I guess it is batmen then).

    for wolverin, sorry, I saw it first but the face is kinda strange and I disposed of the idea before reading the passage.

    So it is “hey, look wolverin, oh, my bad, its two batmen, wait, it is batman looking into a mirror with a grumpy face *read article* oh, it is wolvering + batman looking into the mirror” kind of sequence.

  40. tony says:

    Nice, love simple ones like this!

  41. Cherry Blossom says:

    Yeah, I saw the wolverine first, then the two batmen, but it seems that if i look too hard at the two batmen, then they just turn into the wolverine again. Does this happen to anyone else??

  42. Jesica says:

    i notced u havn posted an illusion fo 2 days… i <3 ur site so much. pls post

  43. ZL123 says:

    Nice. Well, I so both at the same time! 3 stars.

  44. Luke says:

    I would say wolverine but wolverine’s noes doesnt block out his mouth…. So I guess its just B-man looking into a mirror

  45. Detective Kitty says:

    i saw wolverine first and as for the plurals…it depends on whether you consider “batman” to be a name or an adjective and noun…if you consider an adjective and noun then “batmen” would be correct…but if you consider it a name, or title…it would be batmans…like when you say sarahs…i think anyway :P…

  46. Jay Alizade says:

    The two characters were combined in the Amalgam Universe to make Dark Claw. Hmmmmmm.

  47. Angela says:

    Duh, Duh, Dut, Batman!! Nah!! It’s Wolverine…

  48. its two batmans says:

    It’s obviously two batmans because if it was wolverine he would have a full mouth and not a break in the middle from some odd arrow that was suddenly added to his costume, this isn’t really an illusion its obvious.

  49. Vash says:
