Weekend Diversion: Imagine a hero (Synopsis)

“Hard times don’t create heroes. It is during the hard times when the ‘hero’ within us is revealed.” -Bob Riley

But we all have our heroes, for a myriad of reasons. Perhaps it will serve you to think of them as you listen to Dropkick Murphys singing about the

Heroes From Our Past.

But heroes exist as much in our minds as they do in real life, and so I'm pleased to share with you the amazing imaginings of Alex Tuis!

By combining a number of Hollywood legends (and rising stars) with a selection of Marvel Superheroes, Alex has really hit on something that brings a new spark that I would never have imagined lives inside these characters. And yet, thinking about it is really interesting!
