Comic Book Villains Mashed Together with Real Life Villains

Here's an interesting series of art that takes real life villains and turns them into comic book villains. The illustrations were created by Brazilian artist Butcher Billy who talked about the series on his blog saying, 

If back in the day comics and movies were pretty naive and faced only as pure escapism, today's fiction has to evoke reality to create something truly meaningful... and frightening.
This series is an experiment where a dictator, a psycho, a murderer (sometimes they are the whole package) or even a suspicious figure from real life is mashed with a comics bad guy - strangely related some way or the other with his counterpart.
The depressing thing? Realising that if the comic book supervillains were actually the ones threatening real life, the world wouldn't be such a bad place.
