Sharing is Caring
Step away fake Hollywood superheroes whose superpowers are CGI – we have a real hero in town! They say that not all heroes wear capes, but this one happens to be wearing a cool one. What’s the coolest thing of all is that this superhero is fighting for those who don’t have a voice – animals left in the shelters. 27-year-old Chris Van Dorn has always been a fan of Batman but when he began volunteering for animal rescue organizations around Orlando, Florida, he decided to use this persona to bring attention to the importance of pet adoption.
Initially, Chris used the Batman costume in order to keep his superhero missions anonymous (such a classic superhero move!). However, the good deeds of the 27-year-old brought his identity into the limelight after GoFundMe announced him as their ‘Hero’ in May.
However we have collected this cool pictures of real superhero. Scroll down to check them!
