Superheroes Among Us

You’re not gonna see them whipping into a phone booth to don a red cape anytime soon, but there are those among us who do some pretty superhuman things.  Guys like Alain Robert, the Human Spider, who’s climbed some of the world’s tallest buildings, including Petronas Towers and the former World Trade Center with only his hands and climbing shoes, Wim Hof, aka the Iceman, capable of functioning in extreme cold for long periods (like running an Arctic marathon shirtless at 20 below zero!) and Daniel Tammet , aka the Brain Man, who once recited the first 22,000 digits of pi, and learned Icelandic – one of the world’s most difficult languages – in a week.  Although the Hulk will always be my favourite.
