The Real Life Super Hero Project started off as a photographic gallery by California-based photographer Peter Tangen that was designed “to shine some light on this new breed of activism and altruism, through a photographic installation to benefit the established organizations the superheroes believe in.”
Springwise.com reported that “the stark, artistically styled photographs on the site emphasize the superhero qualities of the altruistic individuals being portrayed.” Since its initial launch the site has expanded to the point where it now aims to be a “launching pad of something far greater—a living, breathing community that inspires people to become the positive forces for change we all can be,” it explains. “To become more active, more involved, more committed, and perhaps, a little super in the process.”
Video interviews with the superheroes profiled are available for viewing on the site along with portraits, profiles and even posters. Part of each hero's profile includes links to the charitable organizations he or she supports and believes in.
Further investigation revealed profiles on 21 real-life superheroes with names like Nyx, Citizen Prime, Master Legend, Mutinous Angel, Dark Guardian, Phantom Zero, Thanatos, and The Crimson Fist.
