Artist Illustrates How Famous Characters Will Look When They’re Old – Must See!

At 121 Web Design our team is made of up a big bunch of self confessed geeks that love anything involving pop culture icons and characters – especially if they’re from Marvel!

Although it’s not very common for us to see the natural process of ageing being represented through the media, especially in comics and cartoons. Have you ever wondered what our beloved superheros and villains would look like if they gained a wrinkle or 2 and retired, just like us normal folk? 

Lesya Guseva is an incredibly skilled Russian artist who just made it easier for us to imagine this scenario. This artist has created a series of illustrations called “Pensioners” where she portrayed some of our favourite Marvel, DC and even Disney characters finally taking their well-deserved rest and just enjoying their normal lives as older people. Have you ever tried to imagine Thor making a birdhouse with his little grandson, Spider-Man knitting with his wife, or Minnie and Mickey Mouse celebrating their 90 birthdays at Disneyland? Just keep scrolling to see them all brought to live…
