'Super Not So Super' Makes Superheroes Look Ordinary

Super Not So Super by Caleb Paullus is a photo collection of recognizable superheroes doing mundane, everyday tasks that take the glamor out of super powers. "A Look Into The Super Ordinary Lives of Superheroes" includes pictures of Batman paying bills, Wonder Woman doing the dishes, Super Girl cooking, The Flash discovering the downside of being super fast (in the sack), and Catwoman rolling a joint and playing with a ball of yarn.

Similar to the Fallen Princesses photoshoot (see related articles below), Caleb Paullus' Super Not So Super images tear apart fantasy by hurtling them into real-life modern day scenarios. Perhaps people gravitate toward this type of artwork because it lets them find comfort in knowing that no one is a superhero and no one really leads a fairytale life.
