Man undergoes surgery to look like Superman

Fails miserably

Man undergoes surgery to look like Superman

05 October 2011

Now, we all love Superman. He can fly, he has x-ray vision and he only has one weakness in the whole world.

Unlike Batman, he also seems like he genuinely enjoys his job so when it comes to choosing which superhero to be, we'd always go for him.

In theory anyway.

However, Herbert Chavez, a 35-year-old Filipino man, has taken the pub debate to a whole new, terrifying level. Since 1995, the completely stable "pageant trainer" (?!) has had numerous operations to make himself look more like the Man of Steel. There's been chin augmentation, rhinoplasty, thigh implants and lip injections, to name but a few, as Chavez modelled himself on Christopher Reeve's take on the character.

Suck it Dean Cain.
