Frederika Goldberger is your normal, everyday 91 year-old grandmother–except for the times when she flies to the supermarket, lifts cars to save her dog, or reads her thousands of fan letters.  Last year, she was suffering–like many women her age–from depression caused by loneliness.  Her grandson, French photographer Sasha Goldberger, thought that taking pictures of her dressed up as a superhero would cheer her up.  It did.  And now Frederika is a web-sensation.  Millions of people have viewed the photos of her dressed up as 1940’s superhero performing improbable superhero feats.  The witty photos have given her a new outlook on life.  In fact, her depression is gone, and now she has time to read her fanmail which consists of adoring comments like:

” You made my day, I hope to be like you at your age.”
