The Marvellini Brothers Combine Superheroes With Old Portraits

The Milan-based artists known as the Marvellini Brothers have created a series of old family photos that feature figures from pop culture. It's quite odd to see the helmet of a storm trooper on the body of a classy gentleman, but somehow it just feels right.

What makes these photographs compelling is the attention to detail that was put into them. The images are either in black and white or have that faded-color look that really old pictures get. With that and a vintage-style frame, the combination of superhero and family man becomes a hilarious juxtaposition. One can see this perfectly demonstrated as a black and white Batman in a dress suits holds up a cat for the camera.
