Beware of Superpowers
With great power comes great responsibility. Like not destroying a city. This outdoor campaign for Manhattan comic book store Forbidden Planet from creative extraordinaire Ben Cascella shows how superpowers can get out of hand. The Incredible Hulk smashes through his poster and creates a chasm in the surrounding sidewalk. Spiderman fights against Doctor Octopus' steel appendage that doubles as a subway railing. Wolverine, well, he just went insane and slashed through every ad he could find. If these demonstrations of sheer power don't make you want to revert to a pimply, Yoo-Hoo® drinking 12 year-old who spends his/her allowance on tales of the extraordinary, we don't know what will.
