SUPERHERO stars have shown that while some comic book characters have the ability to fly, they pale in comparison to those who can pull off a smooth abseil.
Captain Comic Con and Southsea Superwoman decided to abseil down the Spinnaker Tower to show off their personal superpowers.
The alter-egos, Pete Haslam and Bryony Drew, took on the challenge to raise awareness of Comic Con, which will be taking place at Portsmouth Guildhall on May 5 and May 6.
The event, a brainchild of Portsmouth Guildhall and Tripwire Magazine, will celebrate the art of comics, illustration and the worlds of TV and film, giving entertainment buffs the chance to catch a glimpse of life behind the scenes.
Confirmed guests for the event include Tommy Lee Edwards, known for Batman Begins and Superman Returns; comic book artist Frank Quitely.
