In my mind the story here is that this was once an astronaut who got lost in space. I think people used to look on astronauts as hero types for going into space, so the idea is that this person was once a hero in someone eyes.

what a great title for this piece :) I just wonder what kind of super hero he would be. Nice job!

This is really badass... I love what you did with the background. It's that extra bit that makes it even more sweet.
