Superheroes are defined as people with superhuman powers. Polygons, on the other hand, are figures with at least three straight sides and angles, and typically five or more.

New Zealand-based artist James Reid plays with polygonal shapes to replicate the superheroes we know and love in his abstract pieces titled Polygon Heroes. From DC Comics, Marvel, to other characters, Reid pleases the inner fanboy or fangirl in all of us.
