Avengers Tarot

So here's a post that combines two of my interests -- tarot and the Avengers!

As tarot fans know, there are a gazillion different and often highly specialized (even arcane) commercial tarot decks available for sale. But, alas, there is no official Avengers Tarot deck. (There is, however, an Avengers deck of regular playing cards. I know because I bought one this summer. Cribbage games will never be the same now, LOL!)

Anyway, the lack of an official Avengers Tarot deck does not stop artists on the internet from producing their own Major Arcana tarot art cards featuring various Avengers and related Marvel characters. Here's a few of my faves. The artists and their links are noted below each card.

Some of those are a little risque ... not that there's anything wrong with that.

And I'd like to get the title of God of Mischief!

This deck is different, for sure. I like it.

Marie Smith said...

The Devil is my favourite! So appropriate!

Kirk said...

Deal me in!

bj said...

Dear you know, I am too old to understand any of this...but...
kudos to the people that created these works of art.

Lady M said...

Well lots of Avengers clad in nothing but blankets and shields. Kind of hot if you ask me.

Martha said...

These are awesome! I especially like The Hermit.

^.^ said...

Pics are nice, but that's how far it goes, friend D … Love, cat.

Leanna said...

Awesome artwork. Gotta love that devil though.

Birdie said...

Love these. My son has gotten me into all the superhero movies. We always go together now. I am still in shock and sad after seeing Infinity Wars. We saw Antman a few weeks ago and I was sad all over again at the end. How are they going to fix this?

I love these but I can't help looking for John Steed and Emma Peel.

e said...

That Julia Cross... mmmhmm. She's got a hell of a box of crayons!

Janie Junebug said...

Lovely, lovely, lovely.


John M said...

I like them, especially updated "death" with a gun.

Jamie Meyers said...

The Lover doesn't look like he's doing terribly well ... she looks pretty bored.

Birdie said...

The picture of Thor looks like his cock must be fucking enormous. Look how he is standing. He is straining under the weight of it. I can tell you that there can be too much of a good thing. Ouch.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Oh, these are so creative!

Magic Love Crow said...

These are amazing! Wow!! I can imagine you playing cribbage with your cards! LOL! You are too cute Debra! Big Hugs!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Birdie -- Well, this post elicited a whole new side of you! I am shocked, missy, SHOCKED! Hahahaha!

Mildred Ratched said...

How long have you been reading tarot cards and do you give readings for people? I've always been curious about tarot cards. I bought a deck years ago with the intention to learn something about them, but I think they found a place on the corner of my favorite junk closet. Needless to say to date I still know virtually nothing about them. Oh well! Maybe that can be a rainy day project.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Mildred Ratched -- I've been reading tarot for over 25 years and yes, I do private readings for family and friends. The cards never cease to fascinate me!

Birdie said...

But you scrolled back and looked, right? And was I right? I mean dear god. WTF?

DEZMOND said...

Oh, my, Steve me some Rogers, Thor me some more!

Adam said...

The MCU certainly shifted to the Cap-Black Widow romance than her relationship with Hawkeye

This N That said...

That is quite a collection..I like the Hermit...Welcome back!! Are you back??

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Missy George -- Yes, I'm back!

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

I'll have to remember no.19 next time I get caught in a thunderstorm.

miruspeg said...

Fabulous creations Debra. My favourite is The Hermit. Do you have a favourite or is it like choosing a favourite child, if one had children.
Great to see you back my friend and in fine form too!
Big hugs
Peggy xxxx

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ miruspeg -- I do like them all, but my faves are Steve Rogers/Strength, Peggy Carter/Temperance and Thor & Loki/The Tower. said...

Hm, it seems I'm not playing with a full deck. I know: gimme some of that Strength and Justice. =)

Take care, Deb.

I found your Tarot pages looking down your list of posts. Also saw the tag tarot in your profile. I'm not really a dabbler in it by any means. But I find the insights of the cards interesting and love looking at the different decks. I think I must have had the ordinary deck as a child. Who forgets the Death card?
Anyway, I wrote a little Tarot advice for bloggers. You might find it amusing to read. Hey, it might even improve your blog. LOL NO, you need no improvement. I love reading all you do.

My tarot write up is on one of my Page tabs.
