How would superheroes look if they grew old? Our favourite superheroes have saved the world so many times and done so many astounding feats that it is hard to imagine them when ageing will catch up with them. Lesya Guseva, a Russian artist, imagined what our beloved superheroes would be doing after their retirement by creating this adorable series of illustrations on Instagram. Called ‘Pensioners’, the series captures their shenanigans post-retirement with other much-loved characters from the Disney universe. Be warned though: it might bring tears to your eyes.
