Spider-Man, Batman, Red Ranger and Wolverine may have superpowers, but even they need the COVID-19 vaccine.

34-year-old Carlo Angelo Garces of San Juan City filmed himself getting four different doses of the vaccine while dressed as various superheroes throughout last year and 2022.

According to Newsflare, Garces said, "I wanted to promote the advocacy of being vaccinated and show that even superheroes need to be vaccinated. In addition, I want to spread fun as well."
