Superman and Batman sit on the toilet, looking sort of depressed. Why are they so bummed out? It's hard to tell, since I can't read the speech balloons, but maybe they've realized there are some situations that giant muscles just won't solve. It's a typical image for Indonesian artist I. Nyoman Masriadi, who often depicts muscle-bound men and women looking either monstrous or ridiculous. His paintings have been known to fetch up to $360,000 each, and he's won awards, maybe because he's put his finger on a muscle-attenuated nerve? [Bloomberg]
