SuperNaturals

Two completely ordinary mortals decide to become superheroes. Can their coexistence remain to be still super? The uniqueness of the characters in the maelstrom of change, rescue, hypocrisy and attempts to play something that in any case I’m not. There is a physical gripping of the moments of fictional superhuman strength. And there is the heroism in the form of ordinary mortals, who must sometimes draw his secret weapons.
