How did the Civil War in the upcoming Captain America film really start? If these photos are any indication, everyone’s favorite Marvel superheroes are largely at fault.

The social media sites of Indonesian photographer Edy Hardjo have experienced a recent surge in popularity for his hilarious renditions of Marvel characters (with the occasional DC character thrown in) in some not-so-innocent situations. Wolverine acting naughty? Spidey (“the new guy”) being picked on? Hardjo’s photos are sure to tickle your funny bone, whether you’re a fan of the comic book characters or not!

When Asian news site Coconuts Jakarta recently shared samples of Edy Hardjo’s “Inappropriate Avengers” ongoing series of photographs, we couldn’t stop laughing to save our lives. The photos have picked up thousands of likes and shares on social media, and even Mark Ruffalo, the actor who portrays The Hulk in the 2012 Avengers film (and its upcoming sequels), shared Hardjo’s photos on his Tumblr site:

Hardjo, who has a background in chemical engineering, lists only one personal detail on his Facebook and Instagram sites: “I’m a nerd who had no idea of what I’m talking about [sic].” It sure doesn’t look that way to the rest of us, though. His photos combine a certain artistic sense with a dose of humor while he poses action figures as if they were in the midst of amusing scenarios. Funnily enough, several of those scenes have something to do with resident Avengers hottie Black Widow…

You can check out Shutterbug’s interview with Hardjo here to learn about the creative process behind his comical scenes. Let’s take a look at some of them now!

▼The Joker does not look pleased.

▼Hmm, what are they all looking at…?

Finally, here are some behind-the-scenes shots:
