1. Superman Impersonator
Herbert Chavez, a Filipino man who has undergone over 16 years of over 23 cosmetic procedures, is not just a fan of Superman, but he’s a super fan. Chavez wanted to be the hero in every way, including the outward appearance, which could be tricky as Superman and Chavez are two different people from two completely different races. Chavez, however, didn’t let this set him back. Starting in 1998, Chavez has received surgeries on his nose, jaw, lips, and hips. On his body, he’s had pec implants and butt implants. He’s received skin whitening procedures, had blue contacts permanently implanted into his natural eye, and even wanted to undergo a leg lengthening procedure, which is known to be one of the most painful and dangerous procedures. Chavez didn’t stop there. It was discovered that he was secretly injecting himself with “MesoLipo,” which is illegal in the United States, to try and give himself a set of abs. Instead of having a full set of abs, this was actually extremely life threatening and he was essentially injecting poison into his body. With his newfound fame of resembling Superman, Chavez is starting to believe that he is morphing into Superman with his life and looks. I don’t think he can just put on a cape and call himself a hero, though. If so, everyone could be a superhero overnight.
