Are kids still into superheroes? Is that a thing? Well, if they heard about the Superman curse, they might not be so eager to become him, amiright? WRONG. Don't be the dick who has a few drinks at Christmas and ruins a kid's formative years.
Embrace the childhood innocence of thinking you're invincible and possess special powers to help people you care about in times of trouble. Get him this Super Me Backpack ($40, Uncommon Goods), that includes a cape that can be unfurled at a moment's notice.
