Rappers can be nerds just like the rest of us. The personalities within the culture would probably rather their name ring bells for demolishing a wack rapper, much like Iron Man would crushing an intimidating foe.

Whether it’s rap legends like DMC from Run-DMC and Eminem gracing comic book covers, or lyricists just adopting a comic persona (MF Doom) — these illustrators craft punchlines that would make Captain America envious.
