When we think of superheroes, we think of kick-ass characters, luminous costumes and mystifying powers.

But what if you mix that with that of the past – as far back as the 17th century?

That is exactly what French photographer Sacha Goldberger did to create some of the coolest pictures.

His Super Flemish series took him two years to complete and depicts the contrast between the modern-day superhero and the 17th-century family-style set up…

Goldberger has even managed to make this Star Wars legend look put-together.
