su·per·he·ro/ˈso͞opərˌhi(ə)rō/
Noun: A benevolent fictional character with superhuman powers, such as Superman. Artist/Hero can be a lonely job. You stand out in a crowd. Some people find you ridiculous. Others appear angry or afraid of you. It isn’t an easy job, but it’s an honest and socially important one. In The Superhero Project, we find the artist (as hero) performing by going to work in different cities around the world. His job is to transform experience, shift the perspective of other citizens and help bring out the hero in their hearts. His superpower? The ability to help you imagine yours and become a hero. Financial crisis does not make this work easier, but our hero will not be defeated. In an almost militant manner, he carries on.
