It's a bird... it's a plane... it's a man with a self-image problem.

Meet Herbert Chavez. This 36-year old from Calamba City in the Philippines could give the Human Barbie a run for her troubled money, having undergone 19 surgeries in 16 years to resemble Superman as closely as possible.

As detailed in the following report, these procedures have cost Chavez nearly $7,000 and have included nose jobs, lip liposuction, skin whitening, jaw realignment and pectoral implants.

This devotee also holds Guinness World Record for largest collection of Superman memorabilia, a far safer hobby that has thus far resulted in nearly 5,000 Man of Steel-related items.
