THE SILVER SUPERHEROES
By Morna Young

Do you know how many lives we saved? And what do we get?
A bloody state pension.
Strongman and Lady X were our 70s superheroes. They saved countless lives and ended disasters before we even knew about them. Then came the pains of old age. But now it’s time for them to step out of retirement… because one final adventure awaits.
By Rob Drummond
Tue 19th – Sat 23rd May
A right-wing politician and a left-wing activist meet in a court-mandated restorative justice session after the latter throws a milkshake at the former.
