Note from the artist:
"Superhero is still considered an important and desirable archetype in today’s pop culture. It is in every little boy’s dream that they will one day grow up and save the world. It is in every Marvel blockbusters or DC movies that the superpower of one heroic man can change the world and rescue us from inevitable catastrophes. But in reality, no social hero can ever measure up to the supreme power possessed by political bodies and authority figures. They are, in fact, hopeless idealists, as ironically portrayed in this artwork, where I recreated an online image of a fire-breathing man!"
