A Filipino designer has undergone a decade of cosmetic surgery to look like Superman. Herbert Chavez has had surgery on his cheeks, lips, thighs, nose and chin and injections to whiten his skin.

"Superman is my idol. I want to look like him," he said. He is planning an operation to give him a more muscular abdomen and to insert metal in his legs to make him taller.
