Danny Arnold’s daughter was reluctant to wear a superhero outfit for her school superhero day because she was afraid of being different.

The Merseyside man stepped in to help. In an attempt to make her feel more comfortable, he dressed up as Superman, while his little girl Phoebe took on his soon-to-be-opponent, Batman.

so i put my kit on so she wouldn’t be alone
your children should never feel silly! or if they do, not care about doing so! too many people these days concern themselves with how other people think about them, even complete strangers. do whatever makes you smile and live a little.

Pheobe’s mam Claire Phipps posted the photo to the Facebook page Life Of Dad, where the personal trainer and his mini Batman have receieved over 10,000 likes.

Pheobe, the hero we deserve, the hero we need.
