The Man of Plastic: Filipino fan undergoes plastic surgery to look like Superman

MANILA (AFP) - A Philippine man obsessed with Superman has gone under the knife in a bizarre attempt to transform himself into his comic book hero, a report said on Monday. Mr Herbert Chavez, 35, has had plastic surgery repeatedly over the past 16 years to get Superman's famous cleft chin and defined nose, according to ABS-CBN television. He also had silicone injections for fuller lips, and thigh implants to achieve a more muscular look, the report said. AFP was unable to contact Mr Chavez on Monday but a Facebook page under his name showed dozens of photos of what appeared to be him and posts explaining why he resorted to plastic in an effort to become a Man of Steel.
