It appears that even superheroes grow old.
I know, I know, you’re probably thinking they’re “super” and “heroes” and surely that means they can stop the ominously ticking hands of time?
And yet, as New York artist Kevin Bapp makes gloriously and imaginatively clear in Super Golden Friends, his creative riff on The Golden Girls meets Super Friends, time respects no one, clad in lycra or not, and so as Superman, Batman, Aquaman and Robin age, they must some thought into how they’ll cope with their diminished twilight years.
As solutions go, it’s a pretty cool one that comes complete with a fabulous theme song.
