Man operated on to look like Superman

PHILIPPINES (WFLX) - A designer in the Philippines takes his love of Superman very seriously.

For more than a decade, Herbert Chavez has undergone a series of cosmetic procedures to make himself look more like the 'man of steel'.

Chavez had his cheeks, lips, chin and even thighs operated on. He took injections to lighten his skin and plans to have an abdomenal operation, as well.

Villagers say they like Chavez because he entertains the children and teaches them good moral values.

Chavez says he believes it's good deeds that make a person a hero.
