Back in 2017, photographer Josh Rossi became famous with a photo series of sick and disabled children turned into Justice League superheroes.
So what could he do to possibly equal that? He found 15 kids who have been victims of horrible bullying and turned them into the Avengers of Bullying! Josh and his wife Roxanne got the idea after seeing the trailer for the new Avengers: Infinity War. He’s spent the last three months working on this incredible project and here are just some of the results.
Jackson Bezzant was born with Treacher Collins syndrome which has left him with facial deformities. Viciously bullied and called “monster” and “freak” by classmates, he’s now Captain America, the leader of the Avengers in their battle against the ultimate bully of the universe, Thanos.
Sydney Gerardis (Gamora), was contemplating suicide when her “friends” told her they’d throw a party if she died. Take a look at her now!
Classmates of Grant Southam (Iron Man), would yell “The retard is here” and beat their chests as he walked by.
Colton Helton (Vision), is gender fluid and has suffered from bullying as a result.
Here’s some more of these incredible kids turned into their superhero personas:
Mia Valarde (Scarlet Witch)
Benson Bateman (Spider-Man)
Dorothy Gee (Black Widow)
Joshua Walker (Star Lord ~ Guardians of the Galaxy)
Braiden Ellerman (Hulk)
Jackson Sommers (Dr. Strange)
Leila Puentes (Maria Hill ~ S.H.I.E.L.D. & the Avengers)
Jaron Balico (Drax the Destroyer)
Morisi Elakano (Black Panther)
Benjamin Crofts (Falcon)
Miles Fuqua (Hawkeye)
Jaxon Bieber (Thor)

No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.
