I thought I'd share with you the greatest thing I've ever seen.

Photographer Sacha Goldberger's 91-year-old grandmother was depressed, so he took a series of photos of her dressed as a superhero.


Maybe she makes such a convincing superhero because she sort of is one.

"Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. During the war, at the peril of her own life, she courageously saved the lives of ten people. When asked how, Goldberger told us "'she hid the Jewish people she knew, moving them around to different places everyday.' As a survivor of Nazism and Communism, she then immigrated away from Hungary to France, forced by the Communist regime to leave her homeland illegally or face death."



"Mamika," as she is known in the series, has become something of a cult hero. She's got over 2,000 friends on her Myspace page.


She's not depressed anymore.
