Obsessed Superman fan has cosmetic surgery to look like his hero
A 35-year-old man has had extensive cosmetic surgery to make him look more like the comic book character. Herbert Chavez, from the Philippines, has dramatically altered his appearance to look more like the famed Man of Steel. In his quest to emulate his favourite superhero, he has undergone a variety of procedures ranging from chin augmentation to thigh implants. According to a video report on the Philippines’ Bandila News, translated by the RealSelf blog, Mr Chavez has been going under the knife since 1995 to achieve the transformation. Mr Chavez, whose profession is given as ‘pageant trainer’, also has a sizeable collection of Superman memorabillia. His home in Calamba City, south of the capital, Manila, is stuffed with life-size statues, action figures, clothing, comics and posters depicting the comic book hero.
