I will present new results from the ongoing Hyper Suprime Cam survey currently being carried out by Subaru. The HSC survey is an unprecedented effort to map 1400 deg^2 in 5 bands to i~26. This unique combination of depth and area enables us to study the individual light profiles of several thousand super massive galaxies (M*>11.6 Msun) to 100 kpc and beyond. We show that massive galaxies are not self similar and that instead their light profiles are diverse. This diversity is not random: using weak gravitational lensing we make a...
