Here's some inspired superhero fan-art coming your way that brings a very human dimension to our favorite crime fighters.

We always assume our heroes our impenetrable, bad-guy punching, kick-ass machines, but, like us, they must also surely suffer from ailments and afflictions that leave them feeling less that 100%.

Dark Knight, Good Night

Were your parents murdered in front of you when you were a child, leaving you hellbent on revenge later in life? Do you wear a cowl and cape and hang out at night stopping crime, but find it hard to sleep when all the dirty work is done? Then Noiroprene is the solution. Warning: might cause extreme cases of coulrophobia:
