As far as 'superpowers reflecting characters' emotions' go, invisibility being a visual cue to a protagonist's lack of self-worth and isolation is a fairly well-mined trope. 

From The Incredibles' Violet and her teenage angst to Misfits' Simon and his reclusive persona, invisible folk tend to have self-esteem issues. 

Thankfully, in his wistful short TIM (The Invisible Me), produced by Shine Box Media Group, director John Grammatico brings nuance and a delicate touch to the tale of a school-based protagonist who struggles to be noticed. With a LGBTQ+ positive message, subtly excellent effects (behind the scenes pics can be seen below) and an excellent cover of Mr Sandman by SYML backing the action, this is one invisible character you should keep your eye on.
