How Far Would You Go To Become Your Favorite Super Hero?

How Far Would You Go To Become Your Favorite Super Hero?

A Pinoy man goes under the knife to look just like his favorite superhero Superman.

What if you had the means and could look like your favorite superhero? Would you jump at the opportunity? This was the dilemma for Herbert Chavez, whom loved Superman so much that he decided to cough up the money to look just like him.

Herbert had work done to his chin, nose, lips, eyes, skin, thighs, and probably other things that we just don't see. The question is, what drives someone to go to this extreme?

The question goes out to all of you CBMers. Would you ever attempt something like this and just how far should someone take their love of the hobby? Comment in the usual place.

Here is a link to the video. It is not in English though, but you do get to see "Superman" in live action...

Wow he must have really loved Michael Jackson to want to look just like him...
marvel72 - 10/4/2011, 5:35 PM
i wouldn't go that far,comics & t-shirts are enough maybe the odd action figure.
heisei24 - 10/4/2011, 5:40 PM
a better way to look like superman is to build up your muscle
imnotahero - 10/4/2011, 5:40 PM

NOLANITE - 10/4/2011, 5:41 PM

This guy or thing:
or this weirdo:
AiyalKilU - 10/4/2011, 5:42 PM
I already have my doctor fate gear in tow for Halloween

... what a sad chap that is, excellent observation btw ^^^

If you're gonna really go for it might as well go for the Christopher Reeve look, hell even Cavill. This dude opted to go for the one shot Routh?

So this is news
venkman9993592 - 10/4/2011, 5:43 PM
He should have taken steroids and hit the gym first. all that face work might turn ugly if he hasn't settled growing. And now that DC is completely different what he knew and loved has all changed hahahahahahahaha fail on dc and this kid
dmm5 - 10/4/2011, 5:45 PM

DioFoRio - 10/4/2011, 5:46 PM

DioFoRio - 10/4/2011, 5:47 PM
it should say: man goes under the knife to look like C list actor
Deadpoolican - 10/4/2011, 5:50 PM
its easy for me to look like my favorite hero, all i have to do is slice up my face and burn it a few times. PRESTO my face looks like deadpool's
grifter - 10/4/2011, 5:53 PM
Wait how did he get a lighter color? I need to know how he did that!
ThreeBigTacos - 10/4/2011, 5:54 PM
I would never do anything this drastic, but I've let my hair grown out and beard grown out to kinda resemble Tony Stark (Well more-so Tony Stark, except I have a full beard). My girlfriend thinks it makes me look a lot like him, and he's one of my favorite heros, so it's a win win right? lol
SGA - 10/4/2011, 5:55 PM
This is what Goku looks like when he dresses up as Superman for Halloween.
sprakinite - 10/4/2011, 5:57 PM

AdamMatthewINK - 10/4/2011, 6:00 PM
Good thing my favorite superhero is Spider-man. All's I gotta do is put on a mask!
Fastestmanalive - 10/4/2011, 6:04 PM
Nah I already look like Bruce Wayne so I'm good, lol
DiegodiusPrime1 - 10/4/2011, 6:05 PM
the most id do is get a spider jerusalem tattoo on my skull...
FlashFacts - 10/4/2011, 6:05 PM
But does he walk around as Clark Kent during the day?
m1312020 - 10/4/2011, 6:06 PM
Man when you think your a massive nerd someone like this
comes around to show you your just a normal one.
Fastestmanalive - 10/4/2011, 6:07 PM
U wanna look like Routh? fine, I wouldeve gone with Reeve's or Welling, but did he have to get his oily hair too, man.

The amount of gel must have cost more then the plastic surgery.
BooYah - 10/4/2011, 6:08 PM
Lol I can definately see some people on this site doing that. Hell, he might be a user here.
WinterSoldier24 - 10/4/2011, 6:08 PM
Hmm, that's weird. . .
krooklyndodger - 10/4/2011, 6:09 PM
This guy is a total idiot.
ALmighty1080 - 10/4/2011, 6:11 PM
looks like MJ
FriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey - 10/4/2011, 6:13 PM
AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! He doesn't even look like Superman. He looks creepy. SCARY!!!
Tkiller - 10/4/2011, 6:14 PM
LMAO!!! He DOES look like an Alien. The funniest thing about this is that, without the changes, he actually looked like Dean Cain...
marvelsnkcapcom10 - 10/4/2011, 6:14 PM
OMG! I am in awe of this, not sure to what to think. I understand as a fan of comics and such I love them like the next person but I believe that there should be a line drawn. This is more than a bit EXTREME this has gone so far as the person losing themselves(the great individual qualities blessed to us all) and substituting it with another person's attributes.
BlazinTexan - 10/4/2011, 6:14 PM
LMAO hahahaha
NightmareB4 - 10/4/2011, 6:16 PM
...okay, I'm gonna say it. My wife and I think he looks better now. Super Nerd actually has a chance out there
HeyVanity - 10/4/2011, 6:16 PM
Oh my... shit like this makes me feel very ordinary.
MattMan - 10/4/2011, 6:16 PM
too bad his favorite superhero wasn't Ghost Rider
blackscienceman - 10/4/2011, 6:19 PM
holyyyy... mother of god...
HeyVanity - 10/4/2011, 6:22 PM
Dude looks like he got some infant's kneecaps implanted in his face.
MetropolisMarvel - 10/4/2011, 6:24 PM
This Asian fails harder than the stereotype Asian character on 2 Broke Girls. Ok maybe not that much...
