Dave Barry of the Miami Herald often introduces weird crime stories with the headline "Guess The State." He's referring to his own Florida, which is the home of Florida Man: The World's Worst Superhero.
There is, of course, no actual person. Florida Man is simply a compilation of news headlines about eccentrics from that state. Here are a few examples:

Naturally, such a superhero has inspired a fine work of cosplay. Andy of Tropic Hunt snapped the above photo of Florida Man at DragonCon in Atlanta. He is appropriately equipped with the magic elixir which grants him his powers.
Question: if Hollywood ever produces a superhero movie about Florida Man, who should play the lead role?

IT HAS to be Nic Cage.
