Olympic gold medalist Simon Biles recently took to her Instagram page to share a stunning picture of her transformation into one of "The Avengers" superheroes for a new video game.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics was postponed to 2021 due to safety concerns over the novel coronavirus pandemic. However, Simon Biles recently joined some other Olympians to "suit up" for the release of a new Marvel video game.
The real-life superheroes are featured in a descriptive promo shoot showing off their specific powers in intricate makeup artistry done by beauty vlogger Kandee Johnson which mimics specific MCU characters.

Following the shoot, Biles took to her Instagram page to share the stunning picture of her transformation to the Black Widow. In the photo, the talented gymnast is suspended mid-air after pulling off a mighty leap.
Biles is comfortably dressed in her "work" outfit and has her hair packed into a ponytail. For her makeup, she has huge spider-like lashes finished off with some webbing details. The all-star athlete shared the picture with the caption:
"If you could #embraceyourpowers and be inspired by one of the Avengers, who would you choose? Being a world class athlete and a Super Hero are a lot alike…"
The new Marvel video game which was released earlier this month through Square Enix games is already available on PlayStation 4 for only $59.99.
Other Team USA members who participated in the promo shoot include 19-year-old skateboarder Jagger Eaton, track and field sprinter Allyson Felix and freestyle champion Nathan Adrian.
Biles continued to thrill her fans with her astonishing repertoire of gymnastic routines and fitness regime.
All of the athletes were scheduled to participate in the 2020 Olympics until it was postponed earlier in the year. Eaton was on course to make his Olympic debut with the newly included skateboarding category, but they all have to wait another year to show off their special powers.
Meanwhile, the USA Gymnastics team was rocked by a sex abuse scandal in 2015, which involved national team doctor Larry Nassar. In 2018, he was found guilty of sexual abuse and sentenced to over 175 years in prison.
It is one of the biggest sex abuse scandals in American sports history and it involved at least 250 victims. Since then, it has cast a shadow over the USA Gymnastics team, and the Tokyo Olympics presents an excellent opportunity to begin a new era.

Despite the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, Biles, who has over 30 Olympic and World Championship medals, has not slowed down and has been hitting the gym regularly to keep fit.
Throughout the COVID-19 induced lockdown, Biles continued to thrill her fans with her astonishing repertoire of gymnastic routines and fitness regime which she dutifully shared on her social media.
She recently got her fans talking after uploading a video of herself performing different skills, including a jaw-dropping double tuck flip. She claimed she had not attempted the move since she was 13.
On Biles' current form, her fans are pretty upbeat about her chance of bringing home another gold medal in the 2021 Olympic games. This superhero here does not need a cape to defy the law of physics!
