Failing Superheroes is a satirical series. Superheroes normally save the world just seconds before disaster hits, but in the series they failing to save us from real disasters happening right now. It aims to provoke dialogue and promote awareness about how we ‘Netflix’ more than we contribute to solve our problems.
For example, at least 33.293 refugees died trying to reach Europe (Der Tagesspiegel, 09-11-2017), while Aquaman the movie made a 550.000.000 Dollar worldwide (Filmtotaal, 27-12-2018). Of course there is no direct connection between the two, until now, because this example mirrors our behaviour, priorities and choices.
