They say humans always need someone to admire, someone to follow, someone to take as a role model.

Since the beginning of mankind, stories of powerful beings with superpowers have existed. Most of us have dreamt to be like one of those heroes, possess their superpowers and save the world.

We have cherished that idea from our early childhood and as we grow up and lose contact with those stories, we leave them resting in our deep subconscious mind.

And we wait for days, months and even years. And nobody comes to save us. Time goes by and we keep our eyes looking away towards the horizon, waiting for that super hero to arrive.
