Superman Saves Woman From Being Robbed

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman! Well, a man dressed as Superman prevented a woman from being robbed at an ATM machine in Gloucester, England.

According to the BBC, Antonio Cortes, 32, was wearing the costume as part of a fundraising effort for Give a Smile UK. The organization raises awareness for disabled children and sends them and their families on vacation.

While taking a break at a nearby pub, he went into superhero mode. He chased the attacker and wrestled him to the ground until police arrived. Authorities then arrested the 54-year-old potential thief.

Cortes, a trained Thai boxer, said there were several "laughs and giggles" when the police saw his outfit. Later, the woman's husband came over to shake his hand and thanked him for a job well done.
