Super Seniors: Over-the-Hill Superheroes

What happens when superheroes grow old? It’s been addressed in plenty of comic book stories from Frank Miller’s classic old Batman story “The Dark Knight Returns” to the grey-haired Superman of “Kingdom Come,” and of course, Marvel entire series of “The End” comics, imagining the final days of heroes like Wolverine, the Hulk, and the X-Men.

Italian artist Donald Soffritti has a slightly different take on the autumn years of heroes, where Spider-Man has IV web-shooters, Wonder Woman is a fat lady with a little dog and Namor — I don’t know what’s going on with the Little Mermaid there, and I’m not sure I want to.
