Super-Heroes get real!

A friend of mine handed me these great pictures and I just had to share them with you, guys! Truth is Super-Heroes were never this political. What do you think?

The original pictures were taken (or photoshoped) by Agan Harahap (alias Toyib) from Yakarta, Indonesia.

You can find the original entry at the "Nicho Creativo" blog.

Hmm, i'm really not too sure what I think of these. the first 4 are very well done, the others look more obviously photoshopped. i think my problem is i'm not quite sure what I'm meant to think - i'm somewhat alarmed that Batman is backing Castro, but it doesn't surprise me that Darth Vader has been placed with Stalin.
It woudl probably help if i knew what the other scenes were depicting (my history knowledge, concerning anything other than Russia, is applling)

I know what you mean, Saranga, the picture with Batman and Castro could be read as either, Batman backing him up, or just finally nailing him.
All in all, I think it's an interesting approach (even if obviously photoshoped). It's a thought provoking set of pictures.

Regarding Saranga's comment, I don´t know very much about photoshop, so the visual part doesn't tell me as much as the idea behind the pics... and that is: if Superheroes existed, they would definetly be political!

The movie Watchmen (2009, directed by Zack Snyder) talks about that... and even Castro gets involved!!

I think, if super-heroes were for real, they just wouldn't be that likeable, lol.

Still, I highly doubt Batman would side with Castro. Possibly the Red Rocket if he was alive, but not Batman.

Most of these are VERY well done. No matter what the person who did them intended, they're certainly thought-provoking -- and that's never a bad thing. :-)

For some reason, I find the picture with Superman to be quite funny. Not sure if it's because I always found that Superman funny or it's because he looks like a dork with those soldiers around.
