It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Superman!

Derek Rich is a content developer for the Cox Automotive product design and usability group with an amazing superhero side gig.

By day, Derek Rich is a content developer for the Cox Automotive product design and usability group. But then he quietly slips out the door, makes a superhero transformation and emerges as Superman to visit sick kids in local children’s hospitals with the Cosplay Volunteers of Atlanta organization.

This superhero side gig keeps him busy, with visits to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta campuses, including Scottish Rite and Egleston, and an occasional road trip to Palmetto Children’s Hospital in South Carolina.

“I’m just a geek,” Derek laughed. “I’ve been into comics my whole life. Superman is my favorite character to dress as, but I do have Captain America and Iron Fist costumes, too.”

But it’s the kids’ reactions that keep the Man of Steel coming back.
