If you are starting with arrays of data (as opposed to images), by far 
the best way is to use ListPlot to do the job directly:

data1 = {1, 2, 3, 4};

data2 = {1.1, 2.1, 3.3, 4.4};

ListPlot[{data1, data2}, PlotJoined -> True]

Note also, that if you generate several graphics objects, you can 
combine them with Show, which will automatically adjust match the 
coordinate systems.

Alternatively, if you are starting with images from somewhere outside 
Mathmeatica, Argument 5 of ImageCompose (see the help on this function) 
lets you merge the pixels of the two images in any way desired.
