  1. A few are fun, like MLK, Jesus, and Shakespeare, but more are pretty awful, especially the one of Albert Einstein. He looks weird, and all the weirdos behind him look like him too. This one went really wrong.

    Marilyn Monroe that is not. Doesn’t look like her in either aspect or habit. It’s not even a real attempt to do Marilyn Monroe. It’s like the AI is AS(tupid).

    A. Lincoln is smirking with the beard he never had as a young man.
    Julius Ceasar does not look like the masterful contemporary marble busts of him.

  2. Oh…same problem with Elvis as with Einstein. His entourage all look like him, but he does not much look like elvis.

  3. Why is Jesus and all his just disciples white?? I think it’s pretty clear that he was in the Middle Eastern descent. So I would have thought he would have been more of an browner skin just saying. Don’t get me wrong I know this is all about fun but skin color should be something that should be part of it. I mean you wouldn’t make Abraham Lincoln of American Indian descent because he wasn’t so research is important.

  4. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, fine, but Michael Collins, he wasn’t on the moon with them, he was in the Command Module in orbit around the moon!
