Carry Your Pram Ranger helps Tokyo travellers

25 August 2013 Last updated at 16:28 BST

Move over Batman, a new superhero is here with a super-human strength for helping out... metro passengers?

Carry-Your-Pram-Ranger probably won't be saving the streets of Tokyo from the clutches of an evil mastermind any time soon, but he might just give you a hand hauling your suitcase!

Tokyo's metro system is the busiest in the world, has no lifts, and is particularly difficult to use if you've got luggage or prams.

Shop worker, Tadahiro Kanemasu has taken matters into his own hands and helps commuters with their stuff, dressed in a bright green suit.

He hopes other superheroes will join him his role to make the service full-time.
