The Unglamorous Lives of Fallen Superheroes

Having superpowers isn’t all fun, games, and attending fancy parties that are impossibly easy for villains to crash. Eric Curtis’s photo series Fallen Superheroes, which we first spotted over at i09, imagines the daily lives of second rate superheroes, who may have put on a few pounds here and there. Disheveled, worn out, or simply mildly deranged, Curtis’s superheroes indulge in life’s simple pleasures — just in slightly wilder outfits than your average bear. Click through to check out a few fallen superheroes, and if you can’t get enough, many more of Curtis’s photographs from the same series are collected in a recently released book entitled — you guessed it — Fallen Superheroes , along with funny tongue-in-cheek accompanying stories by Scott Allen Perry and Adam Mock.
