In this edition of ‘take all my money,’ Luis Nuñez, 24, a graphic designer based in Mazatlán, Sinaloa Mexico has given us the gift of recreating Lotería to incorporate the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe. Moviegoers who fell in love with Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, and Groot get to see the characters in a whole light on Nuñez’s Instagram account (@luis.nunez07).

What started off with one image has ballooned to 18—and Nuñez has no plans to stop until the set is complete with all 54 titles. So far he’s finished 32 illustrations which he plans to unveil on his Instagram account in the weeks to come.

Which begs the question, where’s the link to his Etsy shop so we can buy our own set once it’s complete?

See the cards for yourself below. And if you haven’t seen the movie yet (what kind of fan are you?) prepare for spoilers and inside jokes ahead:

Nuñez kicked off his project with Ironman as el valiente.

Honestly, this is a solid choice here. He is one of the greatest characters in the Marvel universe. What a solid and engaging art project focused on one of the greatest superhero franchises in the world.

Don’t sleep on the details. A second image in the post includes a tighter focus on Tony’s own infinity gauntlet.

Iron Man kicked off the series and if you’ve watched the last installment, you know how the story ends. Tony Stark as el valiente is a fitting tribute. 

The hand that undid the Avengers.

The film starts where Thanos left off—in the aftermath of the devastating snap. If you know, you know. And if you don’t know, then you know because everyone is still talking about the movie.

The artist even gave us the answer to Thanos’s devastating hand.

But always a schemer, Iron Man constructs his own infinity gauntlet and outmaneuvers the psychopath.

Thor gets called out on his drinking problem.

The god of lightning had a rough go at the start of the film. He buried his pain with alcohol and had the beer belly to prove it.

Duh, of course Peter Parker is la araña.

Nuñez depicts Spider-Man with his enhanced super suit. He says each image takes him 30-60 minutes to complete.

And who could forget the heart-wrenching moment when Parker begins to crumble and turn to dust?

Clearly, Nuñez doesn’t want you to and provided this twofer when creating la araña.

Only the strongest Avenger can carry the world.

Nuñez is clearly team Hulk when it comes to the argument of who the strongest Avenger is. Thor might have something to say about this. 

All the feels with this throwback to Tony’s heart.

He knew this would fit so perfectly within the context of Lotería.

Who better to represent ‘the soldier’ than Captain America.

The second movie in the Captain America canon is called “Winter Soldier.” 

Of course, Thanos is the devil.

There’s no one better suited to embody el diablo than the man responsible for killing his daughter and wiping out half of Earth’s population.

When you’re as well-groomed and presentable as Doctor Strange (on teetering on being pretentious) El Catrin is the only card that makes sense.

It’s funny to see how well the Marvel characters fit into la Lotería. Doctor Strange begins with a shot of his fancy clothes and accessories. He never loses his flair for appearances as evident by his high-neck flowing cape. 

Black Widow is the obvious choice for the lady card.

The franchise needed more women in it. No secret there.

Guardians of the Galaxy was defined by its soundtrack. Peter Quill wearing his Walkman makes the perfect musico.

Music was Peter Quill. Who could forget the ’60s and the ’70s soundtrack that included Hooked on a Feeling and all his out of tune singing?

Teenage Groot still has some years to go before growing into a tree.

Adult Groot sacrificed himself for the Guardians. When we see him again, he’s a mere sapling but well on his way to growing into a sturdy arbol.

Clint Barton, complete with his f*ckboi haircut, is El Apache.

Hawkeye might not be Native American, but with a bow and arrow in hand, he has an eerie resemblance to the original image of el apache.

El Gorrito gets a massive metal make-over. 

Credit: luis.nunez07 / Instagram

No frill bonnet to be seen here. El Gorrito has redesigned to include Thor’s comic book version of his helmet, which makes a brief cameo during Ragnarok. 

Groot’s home gets a shout-out.

Credit: luis.nunez07 / Instagram

Baby Groot was a fan favorite. It’s only right he make an appearance in the flower pot card.

Why Red Skull was the keeper of the Soul Stone still feels like a mystery but at least it makes sense here.

Credit: luis.nunez07 / Instagram

The skull with crossbones has been swapped out for the Hydra symbol with Red Skull sitting at its center.

Falcon may fit the pajaro card perfectly at the start of Endgame…

Credit: luis.nunez07 / Instagram

…But by the end of it, he’s received a major upgrade. We might be looking at the new face of the Captain America canon here folks.

Only royalty wears a crown…

Credit: luis.nunez07 / Instagram

…So it’s appropriate for King T’Challa’s Black Panther to take la corona.

Keep an eye Nuñez’s Instagram account (@luis.nunez07) for the remaining 36 illustrations.

It’s National Picnic Week and since you’re reading this, we’re assuming you’re the altruistic, enjoy-every-moment type. So trust that as we help you set the tone of your fictional (or real) picnic, we’ll give you a vetted, Latino driven and focused organization that deserves your money. Who knows, maybe you’ll even plan the picnic IRL to raise awareness for the cause?

Vamos a ver.

Where's the picnic at?

@thatssohaute / Twitter

Pick a basket, any basket.

Will there be salad?

@FoodHeaIth / Twitter

Play a song to set the mood.

What food can a picnic not exist without?

Whose invited?

Whose *not* invited?

Pick a field of flowers you'd want to be in.

Ok, really, talk about the humans invited.

Plan A Picnic And We’ll Tell You What Organization You Should Donate To
National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health

NLIRH is doing the research nobody else is--understanding how Latinas suffer under gender inequality, especially in regards to access to healthcare. Then, NLIRH is using policy change and Latina leadership development to advance a reproductive justice agenda to include immigrant healthcare, abortion access, and affordable healthcare. You're ready to let patriarchy rest in pieces, now more than ever. We're not rewinding history and we're not letting women of color and immigrants get left behind in anyone's version of feminism. This is it, you're here for it.
Trans Latina Coalition

TLC is formed by Trans Latinx leaders *for* trans Latinx immigrants living in the U.S. They work with policy makers to find solutions to trans peoples' unique needs, especially those living in detention centers without access to appropriate healthcare. You are abounding in inclusive energy because you know justice reform must be intersectional, and you are intentional about creating space for this advocacy work from picnic conversations to your pocketbook.
Freedom for Immigrants

Freedom for Immigrants is devoted to abolishing immigration detention, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this profit-driven system. They are the only nonprofit in the country monitoring the human rights abuses faced by immigrants detained by ICE through a national hotline and network of volunteer detention visitors, while also modeling a community-based alternative to detention that welcomes immigrants into the social fabric of the United States. You and Freedom for Immigrants have a lot in common--you're both changing the world one person, one step at a time, and feel everyone has a right to a safe space of belonging.
Spay Mexico

Spay Mexico is aiming to end pet overpopulation and homelessness in Mexico one animal at a time. It's vision is to create affordable and free spay and neuter surgeries for responsible guardians and homeless animals alike. You can't imagine your animal companion left to fend for him or herself in the streets anymore than any other dog or cat. Your heart is big enough to extend to a range of issues, and you won't leave anyone behind.
