Step aside, Defenders. There’s a new hero in town to save the day, if he’s feeling up to it. Larry David becomes the hero we deserve, and the one we need, as a new Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 teaser and poster shines into the night sky.

In lieu of an official trailer for the October 1 premiere, HBO debuted a new Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 teaser and poster with a superheroic bent. Larry predictably isn’t up to the task, but at least HBO is putting up a brave face after hackers leaked several of the coming season’s early episodes. Check out the new poster:
