Comics artist Jerry Robinson, creator of the Joker and Robin, died peacefully last night. He was 87 years old.

Robinson joined DC comics in 1939 at the age of 17, and would continue his comics career through the rest of the 20th century. At the time, "Batman" was gaining popularity, and DC was asked to make the stories more kid-friendly, and to add a good villain. Robinson set to work, basing the new character on the recently released film "The Man Who Laughs," and Batman's most iconic adversary was born.

You will be missed, Mr. Robinson. The comics world was lucky to have you.

It started with the top image. An artist called Blue posted a drawing of a Black Widow and Hawkeye cover with the poses swapped. Blue then issued a challenge to other artists: replace the female characters in other comics with Hawkeye. These are just a few examples of what happened next.
