It’s not easy being Superman

In this photo taken June 14, 2012, Avelino Chavez wears his signature Superman costume as he walks to work in Lima, Peru. Chavez, 52, took on the Superman persona 15 years ago, when he lost his job as a security guard, and says he has had work ever since. Chavez also says he only earns about $160 US dollars per month, but that he has the strength of a superhero. Chavez currently works to promote a travel agency. (AP Photo/Martin Mejia)
