Meet Herbert Chavez, the Filipino Superman!
Herbert is probably the world’s biggest Superman fan, so obsessed with the Man of Steel that he has undergone several plastic surgery procedures to make him look like his favorite superhero.
Going under the knife in 1995 for the first time in his quest to transform himself into the comic book character, he has undergone several other procedures in the ensuing years - a chin augmentation to get Superman’s cleft, rhinoplasty to get Christopher Reeves nose, silicone injections for more plump lips, thigh implants and liposuction on his stomach.
Examining the before and after photos, it is believed that he may also have had eye surgery, cheek augmentation and jaw augmentation.
Herbert has idolized Clark Kent since the day he was given the distinctive blue and red suit as a child.
In 1990 after he started working , he started to buy the Superman figurines and have been collecting for over 20 years. His house in Calamba City, in the Philippines, is filled with a sizable collection of Superman memorabilia, including life-size statues, action figures, clothing, comics and all sorts of other stuff.
Herbert , something of a celebrity in his hometown after being crowned “Mr Hero”, has become a full-time “pageant trainer”(whatever that is).
Psychiatrists think that Herbert may be suffering from body dysmorphic disorder, meaning that he is obsessed with making cosmetic changes to his body.
Herbert has plans for more makeover procedures in the future.
What a man!
