Swedish artist Andreas Englund is currently on work of a series of beautifully detailed oil paintings, called “Aging Superhero” about an older gentleman whose most heroic days may be behind him.

We can only hope that when we’re this anonymous hero’s age, we’ll still be willing to pull the tights on and go thwart some evil.
