Photobomb Art Invades History: Superheros Lurking In Vintage War Photos

How would the major events of the world have been changed if superheroes truly existed? We may never know, but Indonesian photographer Agan Harahap, whose work we first spotted over at Design Taxi, takes a step towards imagining what it might have been like with these incredible vintage photos of World War II, manipulated to include superheroes and movie villains getting a piece of the action. The photos range from hilarious to poignant and even slightly disturbing – Batman giving orders to the paratroopers at Greenham airfield, Darth Vader sitting for pictures at Yalta, Captain American infiltrating a Russian prisoner-of-war camp — and a few of them make us feel a little better that superheroes don’t actually exist. After all, you never know whose side they might wind up on.

funny thing about this one is it looks natural! 

Now this one I had seen before, classic! 

Wow! Again, almost believable! 

Oh man! Good one and spooky as well....

Now this is epic! I'd love to see more of the Joker in old war photos...
