Over on Superhero Lives! is the story of Friar Storm, a Luchadore wrestler. (http://xoomer.virgilio.it/amasoni2002/shl/reallife/fray_tormenta_(2005).htm While not necessarily a superhero, he wore a costume and fought for a noble cause: the children in his orphanage. He had a long career, and never really had incredible success, but he was able to clothe and fee his wards. Now, a film is being made to tell his story...sort of. Jack Black stars in Nacho Libre, the similar but not exact story of Friar Storm, who was a priest that became a masked wrestler (for slightly less noble reasons in the film) Check out the trailer here: http://aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=22376
