Superheroes Come In All Shapes and Cliches

I'd want to be the rich avenger, but only if it came with real super powers. See the video at the bottom to understand why. From Threadless designer Joshua Kemble.

The Real Story of the Superheroes

From photographer Dulce Pinzón: The Mexican immigrant worker in New York is a perfect example of the hero who has gone unnoticed. It is common for a Mexican worker in New York to work extraordinary hours in extreme conditions for very low wages which are saved at great cost and sacrifice and sent to families and communities in Mexico who rely on them to survive.

The principal objective of this series is to pay homage to these brave and determined men and women that somehow manage, without the help of any supernatural power, to withstand extreme conditions of labor in order to help their families and communities survive and prosper.

Do those workers ever wish they had real super powers? From Norwegian director Stian Hafstad: This is the story of Arne, who is convinced he has super powers. He just hasn't found them yet. So he decides to put up a wanted note for an archenemy, hoping that it will help him discover his true powers.

The Justice League and a completely ordinary human save the city. Sometimes not having super powers makes it a little hard to deal with your peers.
