When Stephen Larkworthy made a few costumes out of cardboard for Dragon Con in 2009, he didn't imagine that he would eventually rope in dozens of collaborators and make over 100 different boxy superhero characters. Now an Atlanta fixture, the Box Heroes appear in a number of parades and charity events around town, including the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade, Inman Park Festival and Dragon Con.
