Italian cartoonist Donald Soffritti, known for drawing characters like Padre Tony and the Super Zeroes, has found a pet hobby. He visualizes the popular superheroes of today in their senior years.
After all, even Wonder Woman has to age, just as Batman and the others do... well, except for the phantom.
Donald has left out very few characters. His portraits include Superman, Batman, Robin, Superwoman, the Hulk and lots many more. His website is flooded with scores of our childhood heroes in their "decadence".
