“Underground Heroes’ brings together artist David Blandy and young people and staff from Fairbridge in London‘s Kennington Centre. Inspired by comic books tales of heroic quests, each young person has created a superhero persona that draws upon their own interests and aspirations.”

More here, which also provides a link to the complete origin stories of such superheroes as Pantherella, Charlie The Urban chimp, Banana Fairy and Keishaconda.

This story reminded me of this, which may or may not be an equally fanciful form of play-acting, or rather the real deal.
