The Top 5 Fake ‘Game of Thrones’ Pop Culture House Posters
Deviant Art user and nerd extraordinaire Miguel Lokia took the idea of house words and sigils from ‘Game of Thrones‘ and applied it to other favorite pop culture characters. From Bruce Wayne to the Hulk, these are our five favorite posters from the set.
1. Feel the Force, Luke!
We love the simple words of “Strong with the Force” because, let’s face it, it’s true. Anakin Skywalker may have been a whiny git in the prequels, but he was still one heckuva strong Force-user and after all. We just wish that the lightsabers were red and blue, as it would be only fitting: one Sith, one Jedi.
2. Gotham’s Dark Knight
House Wayne’s words are short, sweet, and to the point: “We are the Night.” Given Batman’s mythology and escapades in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, this is absolutely fitting. It’s almost as if Bruce Wayne would’ve taken the League of Shadows training (and house words, if they lived in the ‘Game of Thrones’ universe) and put a positive spin on it. Besides, we adore the simple sigil of a lone bat flying across a jet-black sky. It’s spine-tingling and just so Bruce Wayne.
3. Home is Behind, the World Ahead, and There are Many Paths to Tread
We love House Baggins’ words because it is just so true. Those two plucky little Hobbits were incredibly lucky–or protected by Illuvatar. We adore the fact that Sauron’s One Ring is crossed by the sword Sting in their sigil, especially since that awesome blade helped save Frodo and the others in the Fellowship more than once. Plus, it would be so cool to brag that your sigil is of an elf-blade that glows blue when Orcs are near. How many other Houses can say that?!
4. ‘House House’ is Just Too Funny to Say Out Loud Without Laughing
Even everyone’s favorite snark-tastic and eternally grumpy doctor Gregory House has his own sigil and words. “Intelligent indifference” pretty much sums up the human version of the Grumpy Cat meme (seriously, if House had a pet, you know he’d own that cat). Although if his words were “It’s not Lupus,” that wouldn’t surprise us either.
5. Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold
Given the close-knit nature of Italian families– especially that of the fictional Corleone families and their idea of “honor” — it wouldn’t be surprising for them to have their own sigil and House words. While Vito Corleone may have been a mob boss in ‘The Godfather,’ he did go by his own personal code of honor and did try to take care of his family in his own way. So it’s only fitting that “family” and “honor” are the two most prominent values on their House’s banner. Plus, given Vito’s death in the garden at the end of the film, the juxtaposition of the white sword and the red rose is very fitting.
