While growing old is inevitable for most of us, it seems that doesn’t really apply for superheroes. These super-powered beings are almost always at their peak or at least slightly younger, thanks to constant reboots both in the comics and in the movies.
Take Spider-Man, for example. For the past several years, we’ve seen him portrayed by three actors in the big screen namely Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland.
We also have Christopher Reeve who became a cultural icon as Superman. These days, it’s Henry Cavill rocking the cape and the S symbol in the DC movies, although we’ve also seen actors Brandon Routh and Tyler Hoechlin take the role.
So yes, superheroes are eternally young. We rarely see them get old just like the rest of us.
Fortunately, there’s a Russian artist who helped us imagine what it’s like when these spandex-clad champions retire because of old age. Aptly-called “Pensioners”, these adorably hilarious drawings done by Lesya Guseva recently went viral on social media.
