Last week we tasked our Photoshop-savvy readers with cheering up an incredibly sad Damian Wayne. Most were not good at cheering up a baby superhero, but they failed in such entertaining ways it hardly mattered.

The idea was that we’d place Bruce Wayne’s son, despondent over the fact that his father no longer remembers him, in happy places. You know, to cheer him up. Some of you did this. Some of you were horrible instead.


And others just ran with Damian’s emo expression, like this week’s winner, MrDeadScott. The parallels here were just too perfect.

Check out the rest of this week’s winners below, and then scroll further for the ten best entries from the Game Developer Barbie ‘shop contest from the week prior, as promised.

...MrDeadScott for the win!

And before we go, as promised, the winners for the Game Developer Barbie ‘shop contest, which were delayed because some people are real jerks. Note that the overall winner would have most likely been MrDeadScott as well, so we’re disqualifying him from winning until he wins another.
