Meet Pruthviraj Patil, 11. He hails from India and is a superhero born into a dull, ordinary, well-depilated world. He is one of only an estimated 50 people in the world who suffers from hypertrichosis, or “werewolf syndrome,” which means hair grows everywhere on his body except his palms and feet.
Pruthviraj appeared in an episode of TLC’s “My Shocking Story” that aired this week (click here to watch the full episode in parts on YouTube):
Like all other superheroes, Pruthviraj just wants “to be like everyone else.” And the NY Post reports that Pruthviraj is currently working with a group of Columbia U scientists to cure this disorder. If that fails, I’m hoping Pruthviraj and his fellow werewolves will form a gang and kick the asses of all those annoyingly emo Twilight “Fanpires.”
