Who doesn't want to possess extraordinary powers and be like their favorite superhero? How wonderful would it be if you could make the Leaning Tower of Pisa stand straight or fly across the Pacific Ocean in seconds like Superman!
Unfortunately, we humans have neither the extraterrestrial parentage of Superman nor are we entitled to such powers by any other means. However, 35-year-old Herbert Chavez of the Philippines didn't lose hope and made sure he was like the last son of Krypton, if not by birth then at least by appearance.
Chavez idolizes his superhero so much that he went through a series of cosmetic surgeries, starting from 1995. He surgically altered his nose, cheeks, lips and chin to look as much like the cinematic versions of the Man of Steel as possible. In fact, he even altered his thighs and his skin color!
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, the self-professed pageant trainer added that he wanted to go to Japan and surgically enhance his height. According to medical professionals, Chavez clearly suffers from some form of body dysmorphic disorder; he simply won't stop getting surgeries.
