Real-life heroes of the 11 September attacks in America have been honoured as super-heroes in a special comic book.

Just two days after hijackers crashed two planes into the World Trade Center, artists at Marvel Comics began work on a special edition comic called Heroes.

Incredible Hulk

It contains 64 pictures including police officers, emergency workers and airline passengers as well as some regular Marvel super-heroes.

And now the drawings are on display at the New York City Fire Museum.

One shows the Incredible Hulk bending down to pick up a missing firefighter's helmet.

In another, the Silver Surfer stares at a smoking planet Earth from a distant point in space.

Proceeds of the book will be donated to charities serving the families of the World Trade Center victims.

You can check out some more of the cartoon pix by clicking on our picture gallery at the top right of this page.
