The Republic of San Marino is the oldest surviving sovereign state in the world, founded on 3 September 301. It separated from the Roman Empire and remains one of the smallest countries in Europe with the population of about 30,000. San Marino is surrounded by Italy and its official language is Italian. Despite the small size, San Marino's economy has been thriving since its foundation - it has the lowest unemployment rate in Europe, no national debt, and high budget surplus.

Two policemen dressed in superhero outfits captured a suspected drugs offender. They pretended to be drunks looking for a costume party when they showed up at the suspects' door, and when he tried to run away, chased him, jumped over a fence and BIFF, POW, THWACK, arrested him.
If by superhero costumes they mean wearing your underwear above your uniform, I'm all for it. This way it's easy to turn into a superhero real quick.
In fact I am a super hero right now.
In this contest you are asked to modify US police uniforms to give them elements of superheroes.
