Professional athletes are our sports superheroes — they possess unmatched, unbelievable strength, and some even fly high in the air. They truly defy the odds and pave the way for greatness, which is why picturing them as heroes really isn't too far of a stretch. To celebrate the launch of Marvel's Avengers video game, Olympians Simone Biles, Nathan Adrian, and Allyson Felix, and Olympic hopeful Jagger Eaton became their favorite Avengers thanks to beauty influencer Kandee Johnson.

Biles, a history-maker in the sport of gymnastics, is Black Widow, and Adrian, a three-time Olympic swimmer, is Thor. As for track-and-field icon Felix, she's Ms. Marvel, and Eaton, a USA skateboard national team member, is Captain America.

Ahead, get a closer look at these transformed athletes and read about their real-life heroes and what they think of their own powers based on behind-the-scenes footage Marvel sent to POPSUGAR. We all knew they saved the day on the track, in the pool, nailing tricks, and sticking landing, but now, they're even more super!
