Guys, there is no escaping Father Time. This is even true if you are a superhero or villain. Think about it: the Joker isn’t immortal. Nor is Batman. They are regular guys who will probably end up sharing a room in a nursing home. You might not have pondered the implications of this, but Lesya Guseva has. The Perm-based Russian illustrator has an Instagram account that features a lot of humorous depictions of comic book and Disney characters in their golden years. Here is a look at some of our favorites.
1. The Flash
Although old age will one day leave the Flash confined to a wheelchair, it doesn’t mean he will give up the title of world’s fastest superhero.
2. Superman and Pocahontas
Here’s an odd thing to think about: Superman is immortal, but nonetheless he still ages. So it’s logical to conclude that someday Superman will look really feeble even though he will never lose his strength. And he’ll apparently find himself on a cruise ship dancing with Pocahontas. Also logical?
3. The Little Mermaid
There will come a day when the Little Mermaid is the proud grandmother of a bunch of mermaid children. It’s actually kind of endearing to think about!
4. Aladdin and Dr. Strange
When Aladdin and Dr. Strange are old genies/comic book characters, they will no doubt engage in epic chess matches!
