The tagline reads: Making fine art SUPER! Worth 1000's epic photo manipulation contests bring together the most creative photoshoppers around the Internet, and their Renaissance Superhero series doesn't disappoint.

Of course, not all the paintings submitted to "Superhero ModRen" are Renaissance-era. The latest rules let contestants use any piece of fine art, so long as they avoid cliches and produce something high quality ("We'll remove poor images no matter how much we like you," the mods warn).

We've collected some of the best images from Worth's 5 ModRen competitions so far. (1 2 3 4 5)

Implications - This is a prime example of blending your brand with an iconic image; viewers immediately recognize both the modern DC character and the fine artwork it’s embedded in. Great advertising inspiration. Stats for Superheroes in Iconic Paintings Trending: Older & Chilly
