St. Louis Superman Breaks Up Fight, Saves the Day at Busch Stadium [VIDEO]

Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gunna do? Whatcha gunna do when Superman comes for you?
Watch out, Busch Stadium drunks, because that's not a bird or a plane. That's St. Louis' very own Superman.

Superman, a.k.a. Charlie Chartland, swooped in and broke up a fight between two overzealous baseball fans on Thursday, and Matt Sebek, of the sports humor site Joe Sports Fan, happened to catch it all on video.

Here's how it went down:

Trailed by applause and cheers, Superman runs into the fight, breaks it up calmly, takes a bow and then runs to the camera to deliver his final bon mot: "Guess what, folks, he's going back to Wrigley."

Things take a turn, though, when another fight earns Superman's attention. Sebek's next video shows Superman sprawled on top of a very drunk man.

The drunk man tries to pull Superman's cape out from under him, earning him a harsh rebuke from the caped crusader: "You need to get lost, all right? You need to get lost."

But Mr. Too Many Budweisers just can't deal with Superman's order. He starts screaming and flinging his body around, and the video ends with Superman telling him what he needs to hear:

"You're drunk."

We've reached out to Chartland, and we'll update the story when we hear back from Superman himself.

so he basically did nothing but take over for the guy handling the drunk guy in the first video. then takes credit with a premature bow and goofy shrug.. then the mugging for the camera… then loses the fight in the second video…. if he's gonna try to play vigilante bouncer he better learn to fight

If he got stabbed this story would be depressing. But ironic.

Of course some guy trying to do a public service by breaking up fights and helping people get a cab or home safely is ridiculed. Good job S(tl)uperman
