As if he hasn’t done enough to rescue mankind with a snap, Iron Man is now rescuing needy folks around Penampang, Sabah from hunger.

That’s right, the metal man himself was spotted shopping for groceries while on a mission to distribute aid to 98 households who cannot afford it during these difficult times.

The sight of the masked superhero getting his temperature checked and mulling over fresh chicken caught the eyes of many who approached for a picture. But being the responsible hero that he is, Iron Man reminded everyone to keep their distance and abide social distancing.

I was sad that I had to tell a kid he needed to keep his distance if he wanted to take pictures with me, but to my surprise he understood. Before I left, he said ‘Thank you Iron Man’ and that got me right there.

Iron Man aka Yohan Charles Jayasuriya.

While the man in the suit was not Tony Stark or Robert Downey Jr, Sabahan Yohan Charles Jayasuriya is just as heroic for his noble deed.

Yohan shared his charity mission on Facebook, explaining that he did it simply because he wanted to spread happiness.

He spent almost 8 hours in costume, from buying groceries to driving around town and distributing to the households. Despite the heat and body aches, Yohan says it’s all worth it.

It made me want to cry when I saw their laughter and smiles.

He also revealed that this endeavour was a team effort, backed by anonymous folks Yohan called ‘the real heroes’ who sponsored the groceries.
