Pop culture icons unmasked will make you question everything

Think you know pop culture characters? Think again.

From the vivid mind of Chicago-based artist Alex Solis comes this superb series of illustrations, unmasking famous faces from TV, film and comics to reveal secret alter-egos. 

Truly the good, the bad and mostly the ugly, some of these surprising unions include Dexter with the lab and Dexter with the dead bodies in his garage, Barney the Dinosaur and Barney Rubble, and - naturally - Elsa from Frozen with Sub-Zero from the Mortal Kombat games. 

And topically, beating them all for surprise is Mr Burns as Donald Trump. We’d like to think that we were the first ones to find an uneasy likeness between these two blood-thirsty billionaires, of course, but at least our hunch was correct.

And, to think, Trump would have got away with it too, if it wasn't for this pesky illustrator.
