Photographer Martin Beck created a series of portraits of every day people in famous DC and Marvel superheroes called “We Can Be Heroes”.

Beck traveled the world capturing portraits of people from different walks of life all with one thing in common: “Folks who feel they didn’t quite make it at superhero school and are, like most of us, living their lives, doing their day-to-day chores, trying to live a happy life while providing for their loved ones.”

Check out more photos from “We Can Be Heroes” on Beck’s website or on his Facebook page.
