“How Superheroes Make Money:
– Spider-Man knits sweaters.
– Superman screw the lids on pickle jars.
– Iron Man, as you would suspect, just irons.”

From time to time we all imagine ourselves as superheroes able to leap tall buildings at a single bound, seeing through walls with X-ray vision and thwarting crime before it happens.
These are just a few of the many childhood fantasies we all fostered during our formative years. Some scenarios involved an active imagination. Others, like the one in this photo, required the energy , daring and stamina to pull off the impossible.
Childhood allows us to not only imagine the improbable but also plan for the possible.
