What if superheroes were psychotic?

“The Flying Man” is a low budget indie short that’s picking up a ton of buzz right now for its simple yet incredibly catchy premise: What if there was a real life superhero, and what if he (or she) was fucking crazy?

It’s garnered more than a quarter-million hits since it debuted earlier this week and it’s easy to see why – it’s also interesting to see how such a simple, original idea can catch on so quickly. Maybe Hollywood would do better to stop making so many formulaic superhero movies and to start making original ideas? Just a thought.
