An Italian sculptor sought to capture the human essence of comic-book icons like Superman, Batman, and Wolverine. Apparently, "human" also means "on your knees."

Sculptor Adrian Tranquilli "wanted to focus less on the heroes' superpowers and psychic abilities, and more on their human fragility." It's for you to decide whether Tranquilli achieved his goal — I just think they're kinda cool.
