Yes, that's what Can Stock Photo titled this, with the question mark.

Well OK, but he needs a proper SuperHero name.

Equality Man?

The Purple Pummeler?

The Man In The Just Perfect Golden Mask?

4. TITLE: "Portrait Of A Young Man Naked"

A-HA!

This "pregnant" fellow has been bought by the Russian Government, and used in an alcoholism awareness ad.

Copy on the ad reads: "Excessive consumption of beer affects masculinity and leads to belly growth, enlarged lacteal glands, and decreased potency.

6. TITLE: "Senior Man Flexing Muscles On Basketball Court, Wearing Helmet"

That description dishonors this suburban warrior.

This is better:

"The general who became a slave. The slave who became a gladiator. The gladiator who defied an emperor."
