I’ve acquired some some superhero fabric but have trouble identifying some of them.

various superheroes

Batman and Hulk seem obvious, but who are the rest of them?

    The problem here is the fabric manufacturer is making clearly unlicensed fabric. So while Batman is kinda like Batman, and Hulk is kinda like Hulk, a lot of them are meant to be so generic as to avoid DC/Marvel loosing their lawyers on them. I mean, is the blue-suit meant to be Superman or Captain America? Contrast this with officially licensed fabric

    Points for using the original mustard-yellow Daredevil, though...

    A lot of the "identify these..." questions we've had in the past have been for things that were technically fan-art and not necessarily license-accurate. No difference here.

    Then there's Flash and Green Lantern very clearly for me. I think they were really designed to be recognisable, if highly stylized. Come on, we can do this.

    it's all opinion based unless the original manufacturer / designer weighs in. By definition, being ambiguous enough to avoid copyright infringement lends itself to interpretation (ie - opinion)

    I've downvoted in line with the comment above. Although it's relatively easy to guess who some of these are but in the absence of a quote from the makers (about which characters they ripped off), this is pure guesswork.

    @Valorum That's how almost all of our "identify the characters on this X" work. Even the recent one that was posted by the maker including guesswork by the answerers, and no input from the OP (AKA creator). That's never seemed to have been a reason to DV people trying to answer about unlicensed artwork before, not sure why you're starting now.

    @WebHead - what "recent" one? A link would be helpful for context. Also - there's a difference between unlicensed artwork of copyrighted characters, vs knockoffs meant to be ambiguous enough to skirt copyright/trademark. (which is what this is)

    You should note that some of the creatures/elements in that poster are amalgamations of multiple works, requiring us to completely guess what the composite properties are.
