Photographer Benoit Lapray captures portraits of superheroes in vast landscapes of the great outdoors. The photos depict a different perspective of some of your favorite superheroes, like Superman, Spider-Man and Wonder Woman. Usually, you see the comic characters in heroic situations or a busy cityscape, but in this series they are isolated and look as if they are reflecting on their lives.

The French photographer entitled the captivating photo manipulation series ‘The Quest for the Absolute.’ Superman can be seen flying over a serene lake that is surrounded by mountains, while Wonder Woman sits perched in solitude amongst a cascading waterfall.

Overall, the series shows the heroes in a state of freedom with zero duties to fulfil and zero lives to save -- just their own.
