In the minds of some, athletes are superheroes. We grow up as kids idolizing these athletes who can do things on the playing field that are seemingly impossible. How can Lebron James jump so high? There's no way anyone could throw as far as Peyton Manning, right? I'll never be able to hit a ball as far as Albert Pujols.
With that in mind, a question came to me. What if athletes were superheroes? Calvin "Megatron" Johnson notwithstanding, there is an unlimited amount of possibilities to match up athletes and superheroes. I'll give it my best shot here.
These are 15 superheroes, and their current athletic counterparts.
