All of us, at some point in our lives, tied a cape over our shoulders and jumped around the living room, pretending we could fly. Or, lifted up a set of toy cars acting as if we had the strength to hurl an entire vehicle. Or, swam into the deep end of a pool and imagined we were single-handedly submerged into the darkest depths of the ocean. But all these powers are merely the stuff of comic books, right? Wrong! Superheroes walk among us, and while most use their powers for good, nearly all mingle with normal humans in an unassuming way – going unnoticed. It’s crazy to think that your co-worker could be a secret strongman or that blind neighbor could be more aware of his or her surroundings than you will ever be.
