Modern Comic Book Covers Reimagined as Silver Age Covers

Ah, the cheesiness of the Silver Age of comics. Chris Sims of Comics Alliance took eight modern DC comic book covers and sent them back in time to the 1960s:

Stretching from the '50s to the '70s, the Silver Age was considered by a lot of people to be marked by the endless status-quo-preserving silliness of Red Kryptonite, imaginary stories and a surplus of talking gorillas. There were rigid rules as to just what characters could and couldn't do ("Everyone knows Superman can never lie..."), and entire stories built around explaining why they were breaking them (" why is he telling Lois Lane that he has no super-powers?!").
