Pierre-Emerick is no stranger to goals, and thus, is no stranger to goal celebrations. He saves his most elaborate displays for the big matches, however, and Saturday's Revierderby offered just such an occasion. The Borussia Dortmund forward's affinity for superheroes has been well documented, too.
Here's a look back at his collection of masked celebrations.
The original Spider-Man
The first instance of Aubameyang donning a mask in celebration (that I've been able to track down) came in 2012. Back then, Aubameyang was just an up-and-coming striker still honing his finishing touch at Saint-Etienne. He'd soon be on to Borussia Dortmund, where his quality, in both his play and masks, would trend upward.
Aubameyang waited a while to bust out the Spider-Man mask again, but he finally did in the German Supercup match against Bayern in 2014. This time around, he swapped the children's mask of his Saint-Etienne days for a more genuine-looking article.
Batman and Robin
Why limit yourself to just one superhero? And why be the only one wearing a mask when you celebrate? These are all important questions, which Aubameyang addressed against Schalke in 2015. He ditched the Spider-Man mask for Batman's trademark cowl, and even got Marco Reus to join him with a Robin mask. Excellent.
It hadn't even been a year since his last mask celebration, but Aubameyang felt the need to remind Schalke fans about it. While it's not a mask celebration, Auba still went to the superhero well and celebrated with a BVB shirt complete with a Batman symbol and a "Do you remember" caption. Odds are that precious little goes forgotten in the Revierderby, Aubameyang. Especially when a player dresses up like Batman.
The customized look
On Saturday, Aubameyang branded himself his own superhero. He'd outgrown the likes of Spider-Man and Batman, apparently. He teased himself as the "Masked Finisher" on Instagram last month, but we got our first look at the newly christened hero in the flesh against Schalke. (It had to be Schalke, didn't it?) The new mask looks half-executioner, half-luchador, but it's all awesome. Even if it's a marketing ploy for Nike and the Hypervenom boots, it's still great.
What's next for Aubameyang? We'll just have to keep a look out.
