Funny illustrations show us what superheroes look like when they get old

It looks like our favorite superheroes have finally met their match: old age. In his amusing series ‘Famous Oldies’, Chicago-based artist Alex Solis (who we’ve featured previously) imagines what it’s like for pop culture characters to actually grow old. Spoiler: it’s not that exciting.

Characters like Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man still don their capes and costumes, but seem to be missing a step or two. Their days of chiseled physiques appear to be behind them as wrinkles and saggy skin have taken over.

We’re also pretty sure they’ve stopped going out late at night scouring the streets for injustice (I’m looking at you, Batman.)

You can see more of Alex Solis’ works here.
