Superheros In Famous Works Of Art


Superheroes are everywhere these days. But the do-gooding little blighters aren’t content with dominating film, television and the lucrative pyjama market, now they’re inserting themselves into great works of art. Or, more accurately, the users at Worth1000 are.

In a contest on the photo effects site, users are competing to see who can most seamlessly get their favourite character into some of the most famous paintings in the world. And the results are amazing.

Works by Rembrandt, Da Vinci, Van Gogh and many others that were already pretty good are now marvellous.
