Or a 30 year old in his Superman T-Shirt (yeah that was me)

Once in the tube (London underground) a woman was about to get left out by the train doors so I hold the doors and open them (it looked like I pulled them open with my strength, but actually they open automatically when they hit something) so the woman was able to go inside and she said, “thanks Superman 😊” it took me a few seconds to realize I had the big S in my chest.

I spend the rest of the day with my fist in my hips and doing simple things as if I were super strong 😅😅. It was fun and spirit lifting.

That's so adorably wholesome!

Thanks for sharing, Superman!

Related story on how little things can make you feel like Superman:

I have an anxiety disorder and got panic attacks. I had a VERY bad one at work one day and had to leave early. I was walking home, shaking, trying to convince myself that I wasn't about to die, when an older man approached me. I assumed he was homeless, because big city and his appearance, so I reached in my pocket to give him some money.

Instead he stopped me and said, "Ey man. Anyone ever tell ya you look like Clark Kent?"

I had been told this before (my MIL is obsessed with Christopher Reeve and that was one of the first comments she'd made to me), but anxiety had kicked my ass and all I managed was, "... What?"

"Clark Kent? Superman, y'know; man of steel? Take off them glasses and lemme see that Superman, man!"

So I took off my glasses and the man's face just split into the most genuine, joyful smile I'd seen in a while. He clapped me on the shoulder, walked past, and bellowed, "Oh Lord, looks just like him!!!" while laughing to himself.

My panic attacks started after my dad, my hero, developed frontotemporal dementia and (among other things) forgot who I was. I will be forever grateful to that man for making me feel like Superman on a day I felt like I was made of glass.

That was very heartwarming to read. Shows how little compliments can totally make someone's day.

Thanks for sharing your story. Anxiety sucks and I'm sorry you have yo go through it. I hope things get better.

I finished my master's degree last week. Now I have free time until May, when I start my PhD.

After having worked non-stop for two years, it is honestly very hard to do nothing. Today, I shall do nothing with the confidence of a four year old in a batman T-shirt. It will be an experience.

This one took a while for me to get down. And is really tough to balance... Like 90% of my job is conveying confidence to clients, a decent bit of which is just confidence in me. So on the one hand you do legitimately have to be like "I'm the best at this and your company needs me", but on the other hand if you overdo it you end up basically playing Ellis from die hard or Jared Vennet or somebody, which turns a whole lot of people off too.

When I was 5-6. I had batman pajamas that had a removable cape. You best believe I thought I was the fastest person in the world with that on.

I remember when I was five or six years old, and would go to my neighbor friend's house wearing my Superman costume... with white kiddie briefs in place of the red outerwear he has on. The adults hanging around the street found it hilarious, and it made me feel proud!
