I love comics and I love Valentine’s Day, so over the years I’ve collected a lot of different superhero valentines. Here are just a few of my very favorites:
1966 Batman Valentines
Love that 1966 Batmobile! (And that hand lettering!)
I dunno what it is exactly that Batman has against a giant red heart, but I trust that he know what he’s doing. He is Batman after all.
1979 Marvel Valentines
Too late, Spidey, my Stalker-Sense is tingling.
Nothing says I Love You like the threat of impending violence. This one makes Spidey look downright well adjusted. Sheesh!
1980 DC Superhero Valentines
OK, these are actually kind of amazing. The idea was to punch out the various parts, put them together, and make 3D action valentines. I tried a few out and they’re challenging, but so rewarding. Here’s some more…
That PlasticMan one is disturbing. Just saying.
Batwoman?! That’s clearly Batgirl.
More 1966 Batman Valentines
People simply could not get enough Batman back in the 60’s. Even if they’re weird and pretty poorly drawn. And have the answers upside-down on the bottom.
Robin, you’re making me… uncomfortable. Also, that’s a rope, not a trapeze.
OK, you’ve got me on this one. Batman stabbing a dragon/snake with a heart to demonstrate his feelings?! Bad. But that “THUNK!” sound is just awful!
1978 Wonder Woman Valentines
OK, technically these are more general romance cards than true Valentine’s Day cards, but I couldn’t resist sharing these.
Environmentalist Wonder Woman, you had me at ‘energy crisis.’
That is pretty lame, but I’m not proud. Yes. Yes, Wonder Woman, I would.
So, if you’re in a lurch for superhero valentines, feel free to print these out! And have a super Valentine’s Day!
