Almost every one of us dreams to be a Superhero. But, no one dares to put efforts to convert this imagination into reality. But Herbert Chavez did. He has transformed himself into the Man of Steel.
He has undergone 23 painful surgeries and spent £4,400 just for this 'Superhero Look'. He has been the Guinness record holder of the largest Superman collection.
The 37-year-old was so close to Clark Kent, and doctors were against more surgeries but still he didn't stop till he had a complete transformation. For the authenticate superhero gaze he even wears bright blue contacts over her light browned eyes.
He fell in the love with the star at the age of five and started working towards fulfilling his dream. He has done nose jobs, liposuction, skin-whitening, fillers and jaw work over 18 years
His request for abdominal muscles to match Krypton's most famous son has been denied after doctors learned he's been injecting with unsafe fillers.
Of his transformation, Herbert said: "What is there for me to regret? "Everything that has happened in my life has been positive and because of Superman. "When my body says it can not endure it any more or when my doctor says that my body can not handle it because of age, then I will stop."
"I like to show to the people, especially the children of the Philippines, that I'm here. Superman is real. "What I want is to give them inspiration. To give hope."
