Wolverine or 2 Bat Men ?

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…

    1. 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. :)


  1. 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!!……

  2. 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

    1. 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.

  3. 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!
    BTW:In our comics there is a few new characters:Speed=Sonic’s grandson,^Shade=Shadow’s grandson,Petal=Amy Rose’s granddaughter,Sterling=Silver’s grandson(He is obsessed with Cookies LOL), Mitichigo ( Me otherwise known as October or Hallow depends on the comic im a fox too BTW)*Princess of Mobius, Maggie(My best friend is a mix of of a dog and a cat Puppycat)*Other Princess of Mobius, ^Taco (lives alone his parents are living in africa), Sky=Tail’s Grandson(Yes tails married cream! sky is also a fox) Mephiles=Mephiles (He can’t die he lives in the underworld, Also he married a tree in season 1), Umm and Mike= Metal Sonic’s grandson( also called michael,mitch,and mitchell,He has OCD he wouldn’t leave my house after a party cause one plate wasn’t clean!) Here are some of the symbols you might have noticed ^=Vampire,*=After we each married one of the triplets sterling married a cookie! Oh yeah I almost forgot the triplets(Speed,Shade,and Sterling) are princes but Taco becomes the King after King Shade almost killed all the mobians! LOL hope you enjoied my little explanations of our comix!!! LOve as always,
    October Hallow

  4. 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.

    1. They aren’t necessarily deformed. Half of their heads and necks could just be hidden behind something curved.

  5. 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 :-)

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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??

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

  12. 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…

  13. 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.
