Superman fan has 19 surgeries to look like his favourite comic book hero


When Clark Kent wanted to transform into Superman, it was a fairly simple task.
He would step into a phone box, spin around and the switch would be complete.

But Herbert Chavez's change into the comic book hero has taken a bit longer - through 16 years of plastic surgery.

The 35-year-old, from Calamba City, Philippines, has had nose jobs, skin whitening, lip liposuction, jaw realignment, pec implants and even abdominal implants to become a real-life Clarke Kent after falling in love with the TV programme aged five.

He has splashed around 300,000 Pesos (£4,400) on his obsession - a fortune compared to the average 90p hourly wage in the Philippines.

Mr Chavez regularly takes to the streets around his home dressed in full Superman regalia, with his hair gelled in distinctive curly fashion.
He aims to teach kids good morals while also brightening their days.
