While most of the heroes from Comics' Big Two espouse the virtues of relatively clean living, even the most virtuous practitioners of diet and exercise may eventually succumb to excesses and the aging process. Italian cartoonist Donald Soffritti imagined what that future might look like awhile back in his "Superheroes Decadence" collection and though the results certainly aren't pretty - they are hilarious.

From Super-Man's balding dome and seeming Scotch habit to Thor's pot-bellied ale inclination, no hero seems immune to the effects of time and indulgence.

Take a look at Soffritti's cartoon interpretations of what the future may hold for some of Marvel and DC's mightiest heroes.
