    What If Superheroes Had Average Bodies?

    Reverse Photoshopping: Superheroes
    June 15, 2017, 7:12:17 PM

    Superheroes are everywhere these days. With seven new movies slated for 2017 – and a couple that have already been released – superhero movies don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.

    While the silver screen is filled with more and more live-action comic book legends who appear to have the perfect body type, the average American is gaining weight. From adults to children, the average body type in the U.S. is changing, and in some states, nearly 1 in 5 high school students are obese.

    We looked at 10 of the biggest names in the superhero universe and reimagined what they’d look like if their bodies matched the body of the average viewer headed out to see their latest flick. Curious as to how much they would change? Keep reading to find out.

    Man or Machine?


    DC Comics’ Cyborg character has a distinct characteristic over many of the other leading superheroes on our list – he wasn’t born with the abilities that make him relevant in a world of gods and billionaire crime fighters. While Victor Stone was born with a naturally high intelligence, the armor and cybernetic powers that make him a valuable member of the Justice League are all modifications to what would otherwise be a completely normal person.

    In fact, Cyborg’s body modifications have made the character self-conscious about his physical appearance over the years. In reality, many men have turned to steroid use to try and achieve the extremely muscular body compositions they see in major media. Up to 4 million Americans, nearly all of whom are men, have tried steroids at some point in their life. Most young men who use these drugs do so in an attempt to improve their appearance.

    Marv Wolfman interview on Newsarama

    CYBORG Meets His Maker As MARV WOLFMAN Joins Ongoing Series
    by Vaneta Rogers Date: 11 March 2016 Time: 06:20 PM ET 

    Marv Wolfman is getting his hands on Cyborg even earlier than readers expected, but this time, the character's creator is dealing with a very different Cyborg.

    (excerpt)

    Newsarama: Marv, what’s it like to see a character you co-created endure like Cyborg has?

    Marv Wolfman: It’s always a thrill when something you co-created (with George Pérez) continues to live on. You try to do your best and hope people like it, but we created Cyborg back in 1980 and for him to not only survive, but thrive some 36 years later, is unexpected as well as truly amazing. I love it.

    Nrama: Why do you think Cyborg has endured so long and so well?

    Wolfman: I was twice lucky. I spent a lot of time working out the back stories for Cyborg, Raven and Starfire long before I even proposed the New Teen Titans book to DC. I think by spending the time up front the characters all came together and meshed well. And when George signed onto the book, he brought his own ideas on how to make Vic work.

    Amazingly our ideas were in total synch and Vic became a star. That was lucky break one. After 16 years I moved on from the Titans and subsequent writers decided to populate the book with all new characters.

    Lucky break two came when Geoff Johns first became the new Titans writer then moved himself, as well as Vic, to the Justice League where he found all-new ways of growing Vic and company. Geoff was the one who ushered Cyborg into the 21st Century and set the style for everyone who followed.

    Geoff’s passion for the character is why Vic has not only grown older but better. George and I may have created and nurtured him but Geoff kept him strong and relevant. Along the way Vic’s had several really good parents.
