You’ve heard of hometown heroes, but what about the villains? See where the evil got started in this series of animated fictional travel posters made entirely from the Shutterstock collection, inviting tourists to discover the hometowns of some of fiction’s baddest super villains.

Explore five different locales from five fictional worlds: Visit Ursula’s home-base, where poor unfortunate souls linger on the Ocean Floor. See a podrace on Tatooine, where Anakin (aka Darth Vader) was first found as a slave. Fly through the asteroid field of the once-whole Krypton, where Doomsday, the villain who killed Superman, got his start. Be entertained in the seedy underbelly of Gotham, where the Joker parades his tricks. And get the royal treatment in King’s Landing, where the Queen lights up the city for big occasions.

See the desert planet Tatooine, where the sunrise is so nice, it happens twice! Don’t miss out on a podrace, the sport that launched the Galaxy’s most force-filled family.

Though she hails from Casterly Rock, it’s King’s Landing where Cersei made a name (and a throne) for herself. Book a hotel overlooking the Sept — you might just catch a wildfire show put on by the Queen herself.
