Street Superheroes-Photo Essay

In this Thursday, March 2, 2017 photo, superhero impersonator Matthias Balke poses with tourists on Hollywood Boulevard near the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The screenwriter-producer-actor, who put $3,000 into his elaborate Batman ensemble, said he doesn't grab tourists or crack a joke to get their attention. Instead, he waits for them to come to him. "My way of soliciting is the quality of my costume," he said. "People see it, they come to me to ask me for a picture. I'd never walk up to anybody." (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)
