Indonesian pro photographer Agan Harahap has taken his love of history and superheroes to make this Flickr set of superheroes looming in various historical moments.

You’ll want to check out all of them because they are incredibly evocative. Above, V herds surrendering Germans on June 9, 1944, in the wake of D-Day. Below, Darth Vader helps out at the signing of the Yalta Pact, where Churchill and Roosevelt would sign over Eastern Europe to Stalin.

Harahap has done a great job here of making the heroes both powerful and sinister. But also…World War II photos …damn. Was that really the greatest generation?
