As kids we all dreamed we were superheroes. We tied capes to our necks. Jumped off beds to fly and pretended to have super-strength. I pretended to be Batman with my "utility belt" of flashlights and keys.

Now an artist has managed to capture that magical feeling in 25 amazing silhouettes.

Andy Fairhurst created posts of Iron Man, Batman, Joker, The Flash, Superman, The Punisher, and more.

They perfectly capture the dream of children pretending to be superheroes. But these guys get a little closer to they're dream than we ever did.

Aren't they awesome and surprisingly touching? For fun, how many can you name?

Do these posters capture a child's dream of being a superhero? Do you have a favorite? What superhero did you pretend to be as a kid?

Surprisingly I never really did that as a kid. We mostly played Star Wars back then. Though my brother did have a batman outfit for his Winnie the Pooh.

Wanted to be any of the DC superheroes. Except the girls of course. Will have to settle for Super Ninja!
