Princesses by day, crime fighters by night. The Disney princesses get a much-needed makeover, ditching those cumbersome gowns for spandex and ass-kicking books, getting them ready to save the day.

This isn't the first comic book reinterpretation of the Disney princesses we've seen — the princesses have starred in Sin City, in cheesecake pinups, and in horror comics — but this one, from DeviantArt user kreugan, transforms the princesses into straight-up superheroes. Of course, Mulan has always been a battle-ready heroine — no special outfit needed.
