The Justice League characters now literally have a dollar value attached to their likeness after Berlin-based artist Aslan Malik adorned American currency notes with their images. American money is one of the most used currencies in the world and has also been the subject of more than one conspiracy theory. Now that Malik has colored over top of past presidents, maybe it will spur a new superhero conspiracy theory wave.

Malik turned President Abraham Lincoln into Flash, while Ben Franklin became Green Lantern and Alexander Hamilton morphed into Batman. The art has a graffiti sensibility and is rough around the edges but the point is clear. This is an interesting project when you consider Malik effectively turned American politicians into superheros, something that the mythology of American history seems to do all the time.
