Darth Vader at Iwo Jima by hitokirivader Darth Vader at Iwo Jima by hitokirivader
Continuing with my series of Photoshops in which Darth Vader is incorporated into important moments in modern history, here we see the Dark Lord assisting the soldiers at Iwo Jima in raising the American flag as a squadron of TIE Fighters patrols overhead.

Some of you may recognize this piece as I submitted it to a Photoshop contest on Fark.com.

LOL. This is awesome!! Oh boy, seeing this makes me think that if the Empire existed, they would wipe the floor with the Axis Powers in less than a year!

In less than a second. They got a freekin Death Star :D Even though that would wipe the not anymore existing floor with the Allies as well, but... it is the empire after all XD

Now on Ancient Aliens: Was Darth Vader at Iwo Jima? Professor Fullacrap says "There are footprints of what appear to be Lord Vader's boots. This leads me to believe that-" *Tie Fighter firing sounds* *Running and blaster sounds* *Door explodes and lasers fly killing professor and knocking over camera* *Vader boot steps in front of camera and kicks it*
