Australia-based graphic designer Kode Logic, who's known for his mashed up illustrations with Iron Man and other superheros, started a new series called 'Playing With History.' He adds superheroes into historic photographs.

He seamlessly blends our comic book favorites into old black-and-white photos of iconic moments from the past. For example, in the photograph of Hitler and his troops, Hitler's arm is now being chopped off by a masked hero. Abraham Lincoln gets a Joker makeover. And Spiderman hangs out with construction workers in New York.

The photos make you wonder what history would have been like if superheros were real. These photos are ideal for April fool's Day or any other prank. You can see if your friends notice what's wrong with these historically inaccurate, superhero enhanced iconic photographs from the past.
