Across America an expanding number of cities are witnessing the appearance of an extraordinary subculture: real-life superheroes. Like most of our beloved fictional heroes, many live fairly run-of-the-mill lives, but when the sun sets they transform into their fantastical alter-egos, fighting crime and dispensing justice (some more adeptly than others). Superheroes follows the exploits of a handful of these self-appointed caped crusaders as they attempt to make a difference in their communities. For some, being a superhero is al about wearing the colourful costume and confronting crooks, while for others it's as simple as making sure a homeless man has clean clothes to wear.
