What hit me?

We don't usually associate superheroes with normal, everyday experiences like aging and getting hangovers, but Swedish artist Andreas Englund does.

Superman's got his kryptonite, and here, our intrepid hero has the bottle. Wonder how well Advil works on a superhangover?

Pep talk

It's interesting to wonder what our hero is telling himself in this painting titled simply, "Mirror." On the one hand, it could be a pep talk about going out there and kicking some villainous butt. On the other, he might be at a party with a pretty girl just trying to get up some supernerve to go talk to her.

Cracking up

Look -- up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's, erm, a wardrobe malfunction!

Next painting please!

Superselfie

Zipping along with jets at high altitude? If there ever was a more justified time to snap a selfie, we've never heard about it.

Caught!

This painting, titled "Paparazzi," shows that when you're a superhero just trying to take a little time off to live the good life, a camera crew from TMZ is never far behind.

Whew!

Our aging superhero's still got it, but wiping out a team of bad guys is sure a lot more work than it used to be.

Breakfast of champions?

This might look like a portrait of our superhero having a healthy breakfast and getting his all-important fiber. But the painting's entitled "Bad Clementine," which shows that there just might be a downside to having supertastebuds.

Nobody likes the dentist

It takes a superdrill to penetrate those superteeth. Hopefully our hero's not impervious to novocaine as well!

Flying high

When you can already fly, you just might look for other ways to get high, as you can see in this painting entitled, "Addiction."

Really?

Can't a superhero just go mushroom picking without a team of ninjas showing up?

I think I can

The expression on our hero's face here says it all. He landed that kick, but it was by no means a foregone conclusion.

Eeek!

Real-life villains? No problem. But those slithery evil things on "Snakes on a Plane," no thank you. No. Thank. You.

Not the eggs!

Sure, he dropped the eggs. But it's hard to feel sorry for our superhero when he's got that kicking car to drive around in. Check out the side-mounted gun and rocket launcher!
