When you think of super heroes who comes to mind? For many, the list includes the Justice League, Avengers, even X-men. But there is a new brand of super heroes in the making. Their name? Team Supreme.

Joshua Leonard, BFA student in Media Arts & Animation, wanted to take the term “superheroes” to new heights and created a team of heroes consisting of children with disabilities. “What inspired me to create Team Supreme was the fact that I know a lot of people who have a child with a special need,” stated Leonard in an online article published by A Plus in May 2017. “I don't call them disabilities anymore, but special needs instead, because they are capable of doing amazingly unreal things that I can't do."

Leonard’s work with Team Supreme has not only created buzz, but an enormous amount of support from friends, community, and high-profile celebrities. He has been featured in a variety of online articles and magazines. "My plans for Team Supreme are huge," he told A Plus. "My goal is to have a successful cartoon, action figures, video games, and in the future, a feature film."
