Moving with the times: Soviet Army monument goes Marvel

The Soviet army memorial in Sofia, Bulgaria, recently got a colorful makeover by an unknown graffiti artist, causing the Russian embassy to protest because of an “outrageous act of vandalism”.

A nifty gesture to round up the whole postcommunism dilemma, Goodbye Lenin-style. Of course, they’re not all Marvel, but ol’ McDonald and Santa Claus are kind of part of the family, right? The inscription below reads: “Moving with the times”.

Check out Santa’s mean binoculars, inspecting the trajectory of the socialist revolution:

Saddly, the monument has soon been cleaned up, at the expense of the Bulgarian working people. From now on, Captain America is to be seen only in Happy Meals.
