Have you ever heard about Captain underpants? Nope? Well, it’s a funny superhero who wears only underpants (yep like Superman or Batman, but just spandex suit). Here’s a picture:
The character comes from children’s novel series by American author and illustrator Dav Pilkey. The story revolves around Two grade-school kids who hypnotize their mean principal into assuming a secret identity of an under-wear clad superhero who helps their fellow classmates.
