Not your ordinary superhero movie-- no lycra, no costumes. Our hero is loved by his community for his heroic deeds, but he's not loved by himself. Watch as he attempts to reconcile his extra-ordinary gifts and his self-perceived social awkwardness. His journey leads him to have to decide who has the truest perception of him; himself or those around him.

In an age where the big box office dollars are all in the mass production of superhero and comic book adaptations, it is always refreshing to see small-time independent filmmakers turn their shoestring budgets towards an ambitious hero tale of their own.
when Bradburn’s effort came across our desks it was approached with a weary sense of skepticism, thankfully about ten minutes in you realise that this is unwarranted and Superhero Me comes out fighting.
Overall, Superhero Me is a short film which works well as a character study of one man’s journey to discovering his true perception of himself. It is refreshing to see an exploration of self-doubt and anxiety explored in a film of this subject matter.
