If the Avengers superheroes were real then then the likes of Beyonce and Jay-Z would be playing second fiddle to Tony Stark and Pepper Potts in the media's eyes. The tabloids would be digging up all kinds of dirt to plaster across their front pages (or, more realistically, they'd be making up all kinds of dirt).
Op-eds and think pieces would be dissecting and analysing every little detail of the superheroes' lives and they'd probably get so pissed off with them, they'd turn from our protectors to attacking us and destroy humanity for being total a-holes.
Fortunately they're not real (i know this will come as a shock for some of you), but that hasn't stop Kim, who goes by the username nottonyharrison on Deviant Art, from harnessing her Photoshopping skills and creating imagined headlines and articles featuring the Avengers.
It's a seriously cool idea and i love the strange, slightly surreal feeling it gives the viewer. Seeing our superheros on the cover of real-life media platforms blurs the boundaries between fiction and real life.
Kim started the project when the last Avengers movie came out and you can check out a selection below.
