Ever imagined what the ancestors of superheroes would look like as if they had a father and mother who had the same abilities only they look much older. For instance, we know Batman’s father had nothing to do with gadgets and the suit but clever artists Carlo and Andrea Marvellini have given us a fictional glimpse of the past.

These two artists who happen to be brothers, have taken old vintage photos and added modern day super heroes onto them, the result is simply great and very believable. Obviously the characters are fictional to start with but these portraits add a lot more depth and history to them.

The manipulation of these images are top-notch, they not only replace their head but did tweaking and re-imagination of how suits would look like.Take a look at Darth Vader’s family, the helmet has open eye sockets! All in all, I think these are really great.
