These awesomely altered neighborhood watch signs are the handiwork of Toronto, Ontario-based artist Andrew Lamb. The nondescript street signs have been posted around Toronto for years, which meant that everyone was so used to them they just blended into the scenery.

Andrew Lamb tells CBC:

I walked by and thought those signs would be much better with a superhero up there. The first one was a splash page — a common thing in comic books, a bunch of superheros popping out at you. Then came Batman and Robin, RoboCop, Beverly Hills Cop, and then it snowballed.

Lamb’s superheroic enhancements are sure to get the signs noticed by upstanding citizens and potential criminals alike. Heck, we’d probably think twice about simply jaywalking if we thought Mister Rogers was watching.
